Dis b Sundayz uppy date on Scott:
Some of you have heard some of this–please bear with me! We came over the night of the 30th by ambulance; on the 31st, they went back in and cleaned and snugged things up. There was definitely an infection. We still have all the good physical stuff–can feel his feet and move legs and toes and follow directions. (Those who know Scott well, no comments from the peanut gallery on THAT front, please! Hee hee hee!) BUT–there is still some aphasia (brain and mouth not too well connected). If that has not cleared up more by tomorrow, they will do a CAT scan on his head. More prayers, please, my dear friends and family.
I am very tired—they have these great pull-out chairs that we just call beds that those of us from out of town are sleeping in. They have given us blankies and pillows and all in all, it’s not too bad. I have done a little walking about, and realized i should have changed into my good walking tennies before i left because the hills are so steep and my moccasin-y shoes don’t support me too well going down hill. I have minimal shin-splints which i hope will give up tomorrow. There is a huge crowd of believers here and we pray for each other and give lots of hugs. I walked to this beautiful little Episcopal church this morning, and heard the loveliest pipe organ i have heard in a long time–very mellow sound that fills the room appropriately without overpowering it—and took Communion, which was most helpful. They have a concert on the first Tuesday evening of the month, and i think i’ll go! A little good music is just what the doctor ordered, i think.
And that’s it for this update. Thank you all for your prayers! GOD bless you all bunches!
Love you lots—janey (altosinger)
