Home!

It sure it good to be home. . . in Phaeton Place. We got home from the hospital on Thursday and Friday we brought the motorhome over to the Elkhart Campground, where we will stay for the next month. We spent the rest of the day here before going back to the condo. We thought with the oppressive heat, we would stay over there to guarantee Terry would be comfortable.

Saturday we signed a lease on one of our apartments (YAY!) and got ready to head down to my sister's. We had tickets to go see Herman's Hermits at the Honeywell Center in Wabash. When Terry ended up in the hospital, I told Nita to find someone else to use the tickets, but she wasn't able to. As it turned out, Terry felt well enough to go, so we drove down to their house last evening. They live in the country near Claypool and it is about an hour's drive from here. Once there, we dropped Neal off at Mom and Dad's. They have been watching him periodically and they seem to enjoy each other's company, so it worked well for us.

We went early enough that we could go out for dinner, so Mom and Dad, my sister and her husband, and Terry and I went to Ruby Tuesday's. You surely know that anyone on a salt restricted diet like Terry cannot eat most places, but the salad bar at Tuesday's features lots of fresh veggies and that is what we had. It was delicious and great to be with family.

Afterwards, Jim and Nita drove us down to the concert. It started promptly at 7:30 and we thoroughly enjoyed the show. Peter Noone (a.k.a. Herman) puts on a really good show. The band is entertaining and very talented. He sang the Hermits' hits as well as other songs from the sixties. We had a great time and really enjoyed the show. It was relaxing and we had super great box seats. I would return to that venue for another show. When we got back to Mom and Dad's, we picked up Neal and drove back to Goshen. It was around 11 p.m. when we got back and we were pretty tired.

Today we got back "home" to the motorhome and will be staying here nights and working at the apartments during the day. We have a repair on our bedroom slide in another week and I had to empty everything from under the bed. It is all back at the condo and I have to go through it because I am sure I don't need everything that was there.

Till next time. . .

So glad that Terry is doing well. I'm sure you were both pretty stressed out for a while there, but sounds like everything is going good now. You've both been in my thoughts and prayers....but especially Terry. Now be a good boy, okay?

Oh gosh, the Herman's Hermits played for our PROM in 1976!!!! that is almost 35 years ago now--- and even then they were old news and aging I thought. That is the only reason how a small town in the U.P. of Michigan could afford them! LOL It's amazing they are still touring?

So glad to hear Terry is doing better. It's good you were close to "home" and his own doctors. That can make all the difference in the world.

Take care of yourself Terry. Thinking of you:)
