We found out last week that my Aunt Ruth had been moved to hospice care and had requested to see Sumana. So, this morning we headed over to Hospeace House outside of Naples. What a lovely spot (even in a snow squall!!!) Aunt Ruth was so pleased (and surprised to see Sumana. It brought tears to her eyes. It really was precious! We had a wonderful visit and got to hear all sorts of stories. I always enjoy visiting Aunt Ruth . . . but the visits are always very far apart. Aunt Ruth was very alert and talkative . . . very much herself! Sumana flashed her beautiful smile over and over.
This week Sumana has PT twice, gets her stitches out on Tuesday and has her birthday party on Friday. Poor Andrew gets all 4 wisdom teeth out on Tuesday. Greig goes to Cold Springs (near Newburgh, NY) on Monday and comes home next Sunday. Sumana's next VEPTR surgery is Monday the 15th. The good news (sort of) is that this is my first week not working at the library, so I should be a little less pressed for time. Whew! I'm looking forward to being able to catch my breath.
By the way, Sumana's friend, Giana, has her next VEPTR surgery with Dr. Sanders on this Monday at 7:30 am. I know her family would really appreciate our prayers for her and the surgery. Thank you!
