Very Tired – Wed. Jan. 28, 2014

From last Wed. until Monday Erin pretty much slept round the clock. She is feeling very low. But, yesterday when we said that we were going to Costco, she went with us. While she was getting ready, when getting out of the shower, the safe-t-pole came loose, and she fell. She remained quite calm, and when I got her back on the bath seat, she leaned a little to her right, and toppled over again, fortunately not hurting herself.

The pole has 4 pieces, and Clark put them out of the way as we got out of the house. So, in the evening, when she went to use the bathroom, the pole was not in place, and she fell again. Clark had to hunt in several places before he found where he had put one of the pieces, but the pole is now safely back up.

Erin watched the State of the Union speech with us for a while.

This afternoon Erin had physical therapy. But, the therapist said that Erin was too weak and tired to do much walking.

    I am sorry to hear about Erin’s falls but I am glad to hear from you. I am sure the change of Steve’s job and the looming loss of the boys’ presence has dealt her a big blow. I hope she will feel stronger.
    Did I tell you that we went to Bellingham by train January 19. Granddaughter Abby was performing in Fiddler on the Roof, one of my favorite musicals. It’s the first time we have visited since they moved there in September. The local drama group has been a good way for Abby to make friends. Cam likes his school. He has had a kind of hybrid education with home schooling thrown in. So this is a good change for him. He is not as social as Abby. He attended the play with a new friend.
    My next step into the tech world is to learn how to text. I just haven’t taken the time to learn. But Tommy and Mimi are old enough now so I have to make the effort. Skype never worked for us. I broke down and do a limited Facebook interaction.
    Give my love to Erin and Clark.
