It is time for an update!

Roger got to come home last Friday, the 9th!  He is walking in the house where he can reach and hold on to something if he needs, too....and we sit on the porches a lot.  We want to enjoy that before the winter comes.

If he is out on concrete or pavement, I still want the gate belt on him just in case.  He objects to it, but does let me use it.

His blood pressure is up and down...it dropped to 97/63 today.  When it gets low, he gets dizzy, and weak, and feels real 'out of it.'  And usually gets cold.

We start outpatient therapy next week.  He gets all three---physical, occupational, and speech.

We did venture to the family dr. yesterday...and went for a burger at Hardee's afterwards.  That is the first he has been out anywhere.

He goes on the 28th to a neuro-opthamologist to see if anything can be done with/for his vision.

I appreciate the prayers that have been said for us and hope you will continue to pray for us...it means a lot to both of us.

I'm so glad that your husband is home. I was thinking of you the other day and wondering how he is. My husband has had 3 mini strokes so I have a worry for his health in the back of my mind constantly. I continue to pray for your husband and for your family.
xx, Carol

God Bless you BOTH... Glad that Roger is home --since he can relax there much better. Glad he will get lots of different kinds of therapy... I'm sure he'll enjoy little short trips out and about.... Thanks for the update... Hope he has gotten to see his beautiful granddaughter some. She will really perk him up...

Blessings to you both... You and Roger are in our prayers.

Hugs,
Betsy
