Lunch With Friends; Clueless Neighbors; Performance Eval

Today our friends Mickey and Lynn Waite had lunch with us in St. Mary’s Hospital Cafeteria. It gave Don a change of scene away from the Rehab unit, and a different kind of conversation with fellow RVers.

Their beautiful new Phaeton is parked a few sites away from ours in the Davis-Monthan FamCamp. Notice all the empty sites?

So why did this RVer choose to park right next to me?

Oh, well, maybe they won’t stay long. It sure ruins my view of the alpenglow.

Meanwhile, Don got the news that the Rehab team will be evaluating him tomorrow, in preparation for his discharge on Wednesday. They call it Performance Evaluation Day. So we know it will be a busy day, with challenges to be met throughout the day. I have confidence that he’ll do well, probably exceeding all the minimum qualifications. On Tuesday morning, we’ll check out his ability to get into and out of the car on the passenger side (no driving for awhile yet). And Tuesday afternoon will be his last dialysis session as an inpatient. After leaving the hospital, he will get dialysis at another location, Fresenius Medical Care, starting on Thursday 8/13.

Wednesday is the Red Letter Day for his discharge! Hurray! I Can’t Wait!

  3. Red letter day will be here faster than you can say Evaluation A+. Your challenge now will be to keep him under control from over-doing. Such a great time is ahead. Thanks for the update.
