Hi Paulie,  My brother is at Rehab.  He's been there since Monday night.  He was ok there at first but now  he doesnt care they dont give him his mouth spray . He gets soars in his mouth because of the chemo.  They been looking for it all day  His butt is also sore and they arent helping with  that with the cream he has.  He gets into the wheel chair on his own.  and goes to the toilet. He PT and OT today. everyday for 30 min each he did the recombeent bike for 15 minutes.  He has transportation he has to pay for himself.  MY father may be able to tak ehim next week.  He goes to get his transfusion tomorrow  That costs like $250 each way.   I feel so bad for him I wish I can do more.  He usually gets his chemo pill around dinner time theydidnt give to him until 800 He is determined to get out soon!!!!   If his friedn doesnt help him with his disanilty forms. I am going to have to help him this weekend.  I am upset with my sister she doesnt visit him. MY brother needs the support now .   

My father had his procedure today they ere only able to do one side. cause th enerves were mangled but they think that is good enough he is peeing!! no cathetor.  He goes to the ent next Monday to check his nerves in throat to see if goahead for surgery to remove rest of thyroid. 

My car fixed.  cost a penny my father helped.  I got 4 new tires and  not what dealer said I needed it done. He did something else that should  fix problem I also got filter and wheeel alignment.  for the same price dealer me  not including the tires , filters and alignment so good deal.   I was without car for 2 days.  :( didnt have to go any where though. I did ggo see my brother at rehab today after I picked up my car.  tomorow teeth cleaner. taking early lunch
Yes heat wave here too. Today was the first tie I went out for the last 2 days to pick up my car.  LOL  I didnt think it was so bad.   but it was 430

Hi LB, I'm shaking my head about what your brother is going through in rehab. He's going to hell and back.
This isn't the rehab place you had initially found for him that was recommended and very good is it?
Sounds like he's definitely trying at PT, OT and recumbent bike. It's understandable he wants out of there. Prayers continue for him.

God bless and prayers continue for your father too! Good news for him yesterday after his procedure. Prayers for his upcoming next procedure too.

LB, Agreed your brother needs support now but whatever happened between your sister and your brother is between them and is out of your hands. You are doing your best for your brother and father and that's wonderful. May I suggest you step away from the 'rift' between your sister and brother. If there is to be a reconciliation that is up to them. You can always pray about it in the meantime.

Good news that your car is fixed and again God bless your father for his help. You've got a really loving dad for sure. The timing of you being without your car for two days during repairs worked great since you're working from home this week.

Letting you know we're heading to the cabin tomorrow morning. We were hoping for cooler temps in the mountains but there's a heat wave and advisory there too. This weekend the temps are even higher at cabin with  heat advisory of 101. The same advisory is here at home for the weekend so there's no escaping it either way.

You take care and internet permitting on the mountain I'll be checking in here.

Hi Pauie,
its  not the  first choice  but second choice.  I a going there in about an hour after work.  I have summer hours .  I will check if he got his spray.  He does seem happier there than the hospital he sods like his normal self.  He had PT and OT today they had him walking withte walker but they wont allow him to walk with the walker on his own yet.  They are probably dragging it on until insurance says no more  ;)

They have computers there (he told me) Either today ot this weekend I will help with his disability forms on line.  I didnt want to bring my  work lap top there and deal with passwords. or struggle on my phone. LOL :P He says he cant concentrate enough to deal with it.  He's always like that!!!!!  I made eggroll in a bowl, I am bringing him some plus  protein shakes. 
Next friday I am off but I have a physical at 10  I think he needs to be at the hospital for blood transfusions at 900 so I will take him then go to my drs.  Pick him up later on when he is done.  Iwill  take him  the following week  wed-sat.  yes 4th of JUly!  They are open that day 

You're right about my isster but she is selfish  ;) :P

Home safely. Long drive. I did the driving to and from cabin. I'm beat. The heat wave was on the mountain too. Whew!! A front came thru last evening with pouring rain and cooled things off. I'm beat. Zzzz soon

Hi LB, How is your brother doing? Any progress with his strength? Were you able to help him with his disability forms and get everything completed? Hope so.

You're still working from home this week, correct? Then the next two weeks in office?
