I finally managed to finish my LHN Acorns for the Friends Gather challenge. I didn't get it done in February since I started late and was so busy but that doesn't matter. I'm just happy that I've stitched it. I have some fabric with acorns on it that I plan to use when I decide how I want to do the finishing.
So much has happened since my last blog entry. They reccomended that Mike recover in a rehabilitation hospital and he refused. Will and I were very concerned about this. We were working on the house getting it ready for someone using a walker and putting up handrails on the stairs after we came home from work until 3 and 4 in the morning every night. We're still not finished with everything. Mike came home on March 1st and could barely get up the stairs and into the house with the help of Will and our neighbor. By the time the nurse visited the next morning he was all swollen up again and in a lot of pain so he wasn't really able to move off the sofa. The nurse sent him to the emergency room to be checked out and the on to the rehabilitation hospital for a couple of weeks. He ended up with a urinary infection that they are treating as well as helping him walk and move around. This is a relief to us because there is no way we could have taken care of him by ourselves. He isn't happy there though and seems depressed. Hopefully not liking it there will inspire him to work hard to get better so he can be released.
