Marty's Bus

Who's rockin' the bus?

Not much to report.... I guess that's a good thing. The nurse was in yesterday. She seems to think Marty is shorter of breath. Maybe being here every day makes it so we can't see small changes. All in all, still mostly good days. Marty made a blueberry coffee cake for her former co-workers and it went in the trash! Did you know that Bisquick can go bad? She suspected something was wrong & it just tasted bad... like old bread. So, the next day the second one came out OK. She & Eloise took it in and all went well.

Keep it between the ditches Smitty!

Freddy, I've been following this thread before it morphed into Marty's bus. Been running to catch up with the end door on the back triple after after watching the buss leave the station. If I can fit in the back of the back - I'm in. Never played cribbage before so ya'll will have to teach me. It's an honor to be here.

Seriously though, I admire the direction and how you've traveled this road. You guys set a loving example of cherishing everything life gives us to share. I wish you both the best. It might be a cliche', but I'll offer it up anyway . . .
    Carpe Diem!

Just checking in..... We've actually had a few days above freezing!

We are sharing as many smiles as we can. For now... things are good for the most part. She's decided to take Eloise's suggestion and take meds on a schedule rather than "just when she needs them". She can always take extra if need be. Since she started doing that a few days ago she's been coughing less and not as sever shortness of breath. On occasion I think God could call her name any day....but other times I think she's not getting any worse and could live a couple years, or more.

I'm still trying to catch up on work.... I'm hoping by the time the first warm days get here I'll have time to postpone all work and just spend time "on the bus".

I guess it's Mud Season all over. I'm glad I'm not driving the bus. :) Good to hear things are stable. I'm a big fan of "Med Spread." It sure beats waiting for the meds to kick in. Peace be with you, Take care, Lisa
