|IT'S 2:55 P.M. AND BY GOLLY AFTER OVER ONE WEEK AWAY HERE COMES KELLY NOW:))|
Kelly phoned about 7:30 this morning saying she had a good sleep for a change and was in better spirits. Her hemoglobin numbers came up for the second day in a row and she was optimistic about that. They didn't schedule her endoscopy for 8 a.m. so it looked like 1 p.m. would be the time right after her 11:30 CT scan.
|PHEEBS AND I TOOK A FEW BACKROADS TO GODERICH THIS MORNING AND YOU WILL NOTICE THE SNOW IS ALL GONE|
|FAR AHEAD I THOUGHT A TREE HAD FALLEN ACROSS THE ROAD UNTIL I GOT CLOSER AND SAW IT WAS A WHOLE HERD OF WILD TURKEYS|
|THIS WAS THE LARGEST GATHERING OF WILD TURKEYS I HAVE EVER SEEN,,,.I'D SAY ABOUT 30 OR 40OF THEM|
|STILL SOME ICE ALONG GODERICHS SHORELINE|
|A HERD OF WALRUS'S SUNNING THEMSELVES?? NOPE, BOULDERS APPEARING THROUGH THE MELTING SNOW AND ICE|
|ONE IS WALKING AND ONE ISN'T|
A few groceries in Goderich, coffee, harbor, car wash, and home again. Didn't take me long to get the lawn rake, pitchfork, and wheelbarrow underway and with Pheebs helping we got a couple more wheelbarrow loads of pine needles raked up.
Kelly phoned around 12:45 saying both her procedures had been done earlier than expected and it looked like she would be ready to be picked up at 4 p.m. She phoned back later and said to make it 3 p.m. so Pheebs and I were out the door, into the Jeep, and heading southeast for London's University Hospital.
|STORMY LOOKING SKIES OVER LONDON WAY|
|THE BIG LIGHT GREY BUILDING TO THE RIGHT IS UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL AND KELLY IS THERE WAITING FOR ME|
|FROM HER HOSPITAL WINDOW ON THE 9NTH FLOOR TO THE RIGHT, KELLY SAID SHE COULD SEE THESE TWO CANADA GEESE EVERY DAY|
On my third circle around the main entrance, Kelly was there pushing a wheelchair with all her belongings on it. As I was helping Kelly into the Jeep one of her nurses from the past 7 days came racing out the door to give Kelly a big hug. From the hospital, Kelly suggested we go to 5-Guys for burgs and fries so that is where we went. From there it was a quiet drive home with Kelly catching a few zzzzzz's along the way in the back seat. We're sure glad to have her home again:))))))))
|AND HERE SHE COMES:))|
|ORDERING UP SOME BURGS AND FRIES|
|I THINK SOMEBODY IS VERY, VERY, HAPPY TO BE OUT OF THE HOSPITAL AND THOSE BAGS TO THE RIGHT ARE HALF FULL OF PEANUTS|
|AT A NEARBY TABLE I SPOTTED THESE TWO DUDES IN DEEP CONCENTRATION AND KELLY THOUGHT MAYBE THE TWO OF THEM WERE PLAYING A PHONE GAME WHILE WAITING FOR THEIR BURGS....I'D SAY DAD'S LOSING AND JUNIOR IS WINNING|
|CAN YOU SEE THE LITTLE PHEEBER BUNS?|
|WHEN I LOOKED OUT A FEW MINUTES LATER SHE HAD SWITCHED SIDES|
|BY THE TIME WE CAME OUT OF 5 GUYS THE LITTLE SILLY BEANS WAS HAVING A BIG SNOOZE|
|AND HERE'S PHEEBS AND I DRIVING MISS DAISY HOME:))|
