 Rick and Medical Issues

I thought I would document some issues that have been going on with Rick medically. First he had to do several weeks of chemotherapy cream treatments on his face beginning the first of May. It was not fun! Then the first of this month he had to have some urology surgery which kept him down and not moving much for two to three weeks. However during that time frame on Father's Day, he fell and cracked some ribs (AGAIN!). This was terrible for him. The first three weeks he slept in his recliner. So painful!

During the "ribs" recovery period, he had to go for his post op visit. The surgeon helped him on and off the table. A few days later we had to go for his annual MRI and neurological doctor visit. Finally all the appointments were done. Phew! 

Can I say this man is tough?!

Marlow's Kinder Graduation

Marlow's Pre-K class at daycare had a drive through graduation ceremony this evening. It was complete with cap, gown, and music. We didn't really know what to expect but it was so cute! They called out each child in the vehicle and had lots of hoopla going on. I am so glad I videoed it! We all went to Rosa's afterwards to celebrate.

Nashville and a Kinder Graduation

I flew with Marilyn on Monday to Nashville. She had gotten a rental car, and we drove to Greg's in Franklin. Anja had her kindergarten graduation on Tuesday. It was a cute ceremony. We enjoyed visiting with them. As always, food was involved in our trip. Today M and I toured the Johnny Cash museum before meeting up with Chad and Dave Dunn for lunch. We flew home tonight. Great trip!

 Girls' Trip

With 2020 and all the pandemic ramifications, travel plans had been very limited. We finally decided to do a road trip to Branson this week. We had a great time playing on the way up and back home. It was a little nostalgic being in Hot Springs and then on to Branson for several reasons. I had been back several times over the last few years, but it was Marilyn's first time to be up in the area since Carl had passed away. Thorncrown Chapel was a favorite to see again; Rick's parents had taken me there for the first time many years ago. Special memories......

Helping Out With Marlow and Jackson

We have kept Marlow and Jackson the past few days while Jenna and Jared were on a trip. We kept them busy each day after we picked them up from daycare. I even got to take Marlow for a tour of the elementary school where she will be attending kindergarten next year.
