Paul, David and a new friend
I want to take a minute to update everyone on two of our favorite men. I have been keeping up with both Paul and David and I want to let you know how they are doing.
Paul has been under the weather for a while but he is now recovering from pneumonia. Problems with cataracts have kept Paul from reading and commenting comfortably lately. But his first cataracts surgery is tentatively scheduled in about four weeks. Then the estimate is four to six weeks after that and he will be able to read and comment as much as he likes.
David has had a pretty rough time. After being plagued with headaches for several months he did have a stroke. Since that time the hospital has been working to control his blood pressure, his diabetes and his kidney problems. He was able to leave the ICU several days ago and on Tuesday he was transferred to the rehab side of the hospital. Wednesday he began working with a physical therapist to continue his recovery. It’s been tough and it going to continue to be tough for a while longer for both Mthc and David. But the therapist is very hopeful that they will soon see some real progress.
Okay so they might not be ready to handle the nurse in the picture. but I sure will be happy when they are both well enough to be back here with us.
There is one more friend I what to tell you about. Many of you know YaYa’s Delight from her comments and she has also written for Fantasy Friday. Recently her husband has undergone surgery for colon cancer. Surgery is behind them now but there will probably be chemo in the future they will get more information on this later in the month. Yaya has her hands full worrying about her hubby, as well as tending to three little ones under 8. And I am sure Hubby is worrying about the kids and Yaya in addition to his health concerns. They can use all the prayers they can get right now.
