Things are changing - finally
Sunday, June 02, 2019
You have all been so wonderful and so very supportive. I can't thank you all enough. My dear Tom is starting to fuss about some of the little things around here - like his Mac needed to be updated and his printer needing to be reset. I have no idea what those things mean but it is a very good sign to me that he is starting to think of things other than how lousy he feels.
We have kept our spreadsheet for one week. Last Sunday he consumed 459 calories, yesterday it was up to 879. So of course he is starting to feel better. He is moving around a bit more in the house and has ventured outside a couple of times this weekend. He even watered the plants I bought yesterday but was too tired to plant. He's trying to be helpful!
We see the home speech therapist tomorrow and I hope he can help us with why Tom is having a hard time swallowing. Then physical therapy at home on Tuesday. Tuesday afternoon we will meet with the Urology Surgeon who will be performing two procedures later in the month. We have been told pretty much nothing about them, why he needs them and what will happen after. Being a man who wants to know exactly how everything works - he as really stressing. And on Thursday 3 of his friends from the Art Center are coming over to visit. He's hesitant about that but I think it will be so very good for him to see friends.
So it will be a busy couple weeks for us but things are starting to improve and I couldn't be happier. I even was able to go to church this morning!
