We took the light rail into town, as we always do, so when we decided to drop in on Jake at Harborview Medical Center after the game, it meant hiking up First Hill. I made up for the lapse in my exercise routine earlier in the day!
Jake was doing well after his surgery, and after a short stay, we hiked back down the hill and rode the train home.
Now today, the wet hats and gloves and shoes and jackets and ponchos are all dried and put away. Jake was released from the hospital this afternoon and Tom picked him up and took him home. He is happily settling in and his sense of humor has returned, allowing him to laugh over some of his hospital experiences. He still as to be careful, but the healing is beginning.
Low and behold, there was even blue sky this morning!
I had to stay put here at home today because the two contractors we had hired for our latest home improvement projects both decided today the the day for installation.- The first to arrive was the gutter screen installer. He replaced a section of gutter over the garage, cleaned out all of the gutters, and then installed micro screens.
He was still working when the garage door installer arrived.
Here's the "Before" picture
And the "After" photo. Quite as face lift.
Our garage door opener is over 30 years old, so the door installer wouldn't touch it, but Tom knows how to hook it up, so now it's working at a push of the button.
I also talked to my mother a little while ago, and she is doing fine too. She's still in her home, and getting by, for now. It will be a month by month process now. My sister, the nurse, will go see her on Saturday and do another assessment.
And so, for now, once again all is well.
