"Hey Grandda, I've got big boy flip flops on! I can walk in them and Uncle Dan bought them for me when I was a baby, which I'm not now!"
Hey Grandda, I'm on my way for my first haircut. Will it hurt and most importantly will everyone still think that I'm cute?"
And how is Grandda Rex doing? Well, we are in Nashville having just finished with the follow up Neurologist appointment. All the test are in and the diagnosis is stroke damage from vascular disease. It is amazing he is doing as well as he is with the damage that the test show. Seeing the actual MRI helped me understand what is going on with his memory and why he is just not himself and hard to get along with some days. Medication is being adjusted, rehab has been recommended, and he now understands that he will not be going back to work or driving. But, he does have the okay from the doctor to mow our small yard, so he is a happy man! Glad he has his priorities straight! LOL Not to make light of this, it is very hard some days. We are adjusting to so many changes, not only in our lifestyle, but also in our marriage. At the end of the day I am pretty exhausted from needing such a high level of patience and he is exhausted from trying to be nicer than he feels. It is amazing how God renews us to face the next day. I am also blessed beyond words that I am married to such an easy to get along with guy!
*I will be writing nothing about Rex's condition or our adjustments without his permission. We both feel the need to occasionally share how God is helping us on our new journey.
