Hi everyone,

Hope everyone is doing alright. It is pouring rain out right now here. Better than snow I guess! That will be soon enough. Henry is all over the board lately with his sleeping patterns. he never used to nap or sleep during the day, now the past few weeks, he is napping during the day or after supper. He does sleep well at night now. He is either hot or cold. So I am either pulling the covers off, or putting them back on. He has many pressure points now because his legs do not move well at all any more. His back, hips, neck and arms get very painful during the night, so I am shifting this or that during the night. I do not get good sleeps anymore either. We run the feeding tube at night, and that alters his body temperature as well. The doc says that this is normal. His lung capacity is low, around 35%, but he does not like using the bi-pap machine. It really bothers him. So, that is his choice.Of course with this low function of capacity, he is more tired. My grandmother passed away today. She was 95. What a glorious life she had. She lived on her own until last November. She was a wonderful woman, with many stories of her life and experiences. She will be sorely missed by us all. Anyway, I just thought I would check in with you all. Tbear, are you keeping busy as usual? Fisher, get ready for the snow. Al, have you jumped out of anything lately? Your skin, pehaps? ha... Keep up the activity, it will keep you young! Jane, how are you doing? Well, gotta go get Henry ready for bed. Have a good night all. much love.....

Carol

PS. Kim, my outlook is down, don't know why, getting it fixed this week, will talk to you then. love ya..
