Mom and Dad update!

its been a long haul for Dad (mom too!)
a few hospital stays..
his heart valve replacement
more hospital stays.. 
Most recently...
due to excess fluid. 
His kidneys just could not
keep up sooo 
Dad has Kidney Dialysis 3x a week...its about a 50 mile round trip and takes a good 3 1/2 hours..
Sister Jana and I have been trying to help with the chauffeuring.  Mom could use some time to its been a long haul for her too. today mom took her crocheting and a lawn chair with her and was planning on sitting outside in the sun. the temp is in the 90s now so im hoping shes sitting inside with some air! Dad is on a waiting list here in town which will be great as its 3 city blocks from our homes! dads been feeling better FINALLY! this last week, that he could probably drive himself!! im hoping that his body and mind are adjusting to this way of life, we are thankful for the medical world and what is able to be done.

i caught these two out walking a couple weeks ago..
