April 15th


No, it isn’t just tax day.  Today is my husband’s 59th birthday, and he is still about the same. I had thought about driving to Lubbock, but with wind gusts of up to 70 mph, I am staying right where I am. He doesn’t know it’s his birthday, anyway. One of his good friends is staying with him til Sunday, so that has been a big relief to me. I have so much stuff to do here at home, with taxes, shop business, and my job. It is so unbelievably hard to have him four hours away. It is really starting to wear on me, but you just have to do what you have to do. In the meantime, I will keep praying and believing that God is going to pull him through, and wake him up, and eventually, I will get him back closer to home.  Maybe a rehab facility in Amarillo. And, ultimately, home home.

His best “girlfriend”, Libby, our yellow lab, became ill over the last couple of weeks, and she is currently in the doggie hospital, being treated for diabetes, bladder infection, and colitis. This whole thing has been stressful for her, as well. They have to keep her for a few days to get her insulin dosage regulated. I hope she does well with it. I told her she HAS to be here when we get to bring Daddy home.

Uggghhh….what a nasty, windy day outside.

  1. You are still in my prayers Randi. I hope so desparetly that Greg wakes up soon. God is great and will see you through this. Today is my oldest brothers birthday too, he is 57. Even though I have never met you I do truely love you Randi and my heart hurts for you.

  2. The stress you are carrying is too much. You must give yourself a few days break after you get all the chores done. You need looking after as well.
    Take care and love to you and yours,
    Sally

  3. I agree with Sally.
    You have to take care of the care taker–yourself!
    We gave him a NASCAR birthday card from the dialysis girls!
    We hung it on the board in his room.
    I saw him this morning & will check on him tomorrow when I go back to work. Thinking about you all often.
    Love, Allison

  4. When you see him next please wish him a happy birthday from all his quilty friends in cyberspace. We are rooting for him and hope he will be home soon! Please take care of yourself, he will need you strong and healthy. Hugs to you Randi.
