Update on Roger...and a hornet's nest.

We saw this as we were leaving the strip pits one day...
Roger kept telling me I should get it, but it was too high in the tree.
We saw no hornets at all.
***********
Please keep Roger/us in your prayers.  He had to wear a heart monitor for a month.  We got that sent in last week, and now have to see another cardiologist.  The one that had him wear it does the 'plumbing' part of the heart.  Well, the monitor showed something with the mechanics of the heart.  We go Friday morn to see the new doctor.  It really upset me last night, but resignation has settled in.

Physically, Roger is doing so, so good.  When we came home in September, I felt like I could not let him out of my sight.   I was supposed to always have a hand on him and use the gait belt.  He would not stand for that.  I could get him to let me hold his hand part of the time when out.

I still don't want to leave and leave him here alone.  I have gone one time to get my hair cut....and that is the only time I have left. 

But he can walk and get around ever so much more than I ever dreamed possible.  He can walk so much farther than he could even two weeks ago...much less a month ago.  A month ago a walk around our little aWalmart wore him out...if we went to a super Walmart I had to just grab what I needed...now he can walk a mile and it not bother him much.

Rose, the two of you are in my thoughts and prayers daily. Years ago my Father had a stroke, which he never recovered from. My Mother took wonderful care of him, but neglected to care for herself. Please don't let that happen to you!

I will be praying for both of you. I pray the new Dr. will be compassionate and that you will have great trust in her/him. We are seeing many prayers answered for Roger and we will keep praying. Love you.

That is an awesome shot of the hornet's nest. Isn't it amazing how they can make such a thing?

What an enormous wasp nest. I want one too.
Sounds like Roger is doing well and maybe the Docs are just being cautious---and thank goodness they are. Goods vibes going out to you two.

Stay strong. The Doc will get him fixed and he'll improve even more. We worried about my BIL just like this, seems like ages ago, but he is great now and I feel Roger will be too.
