unconditionally

Love can be a healer.

CAREGIVER NOTE:
Trust the process. It feels like he is adjusting better into the current routine and is feeling more “at home.” He enjoys most projects and the chores he has picked for himself to do. Hoping to find another activity or two he enjoys this week to help fill some of the time and get him out of the chair more frequently.

Take an inventory of your blessings today.  You’ll likely find a few surprises.

CAREGIVER NOTE:

A couple of new projects in the works that he should be able to help with. We think he’ll be able to help us draft a design for a new ramp for the back landing to help him navigate more safely into the back yard. He and T will work on that over the course of the next couple of weeks. He’s excited about being able to refill the bird feeder from the back landing as soon as the new post and platform are in place. He’ll help put that together as well. We just need to pick up the post and cut the platform this week. It should be ready to “plant” by the end of the week.

He’s enjoying watching the flowers bloom outside in his new planter box and was really surprised to see how much the new “salad” garden had grown in the last few days. Sure brought a smile to his face. The window herb garden is starting to sprout as well. He has really missed tending to his quarter acre garden of years past.

Needless to say, yesterday was a good day overall. A few blips on the screen, but no downward spiral.
