Another Week :(

Friday, June 06, 2014

Yesterday I got a phone call from the rehab facility that my uncle is at and they had a team meeting in which they decided they do not feel comfortable sending him home today because he's been shaky, doesn't have much stamina, and because he fell in the bathroom on Wednesday. They want to keep him for up to a week longer and then they will check his progress but for now he has to stay there to get stronger. It's very disappointing but it is for the best and will give us a chance to keep cleaning the house. Going to tackle the living room this weekend.

I went to a family friend's house to visit with her and to make a pie from scratch. She showed me how to make a pie crust from scratch and how to make a lattice top. We ended up making a mixed berry pie and she sent me home with a few tops, the pie we made, an orchid plant for my uncle, and my very own Cuisinart food processor! I can't wait to use it :) I'll be making another pie real soon! I have some photos of me and the pie I'll post in a blog post tomorrow.

I also got more edits back from my photo shoot! I have 6 more I'm waiting on but she gave me 8 more edits so I'll post those as well.

    Glad they will keep him so he can get stronger. Falling in the bathroom is dangerous, especially at night. That could send him back to the hospital and delay his recovery.
    Go to the dollar store and buy some cheap plastic whistles so he can easily alert you if he needs help at home. One by his bed and one in the bathroom could save him a fall if he feels too weak to go it alone. He may not want to bother you but it really is important for a couple of weeks.

    That is a bummer, I am sorry. I know how much you were looking forward to it! The week will pass quickly, never fear. What lovely gifts!
    I need to learn how to make pie crust. It seems so difficult to do right!
