Uncle Tom is back! Sandra’s brother Tom spent a week in New York on business and just arrived back here last night. He spent time with a friend that he is working with getting himself set up to work from here in Atlanta. After the first of the year it will be just Tom and I here to take care of Sandra and the kids. Cindy will be returning to her job in January.
Aunt Cathy leaves tomorrow morning. We are really going to miss her! It was like having two Cindys…maybe three. Cindy and Cathy were like a whirlwind cleaning, sorting and organizing the house so that Sandra won’t be overwhelmed by those particular chores and can focus on herself and the children. Cathy was also a great source of comfort to both Cindy and Sandra. I think going home, however, will be like a vacation to her.
Sandra’s physical injuries are healing nicely. The gash on the back of her leg has healed to the point where Mom will be able to change the dressing as opposed to a nurse coming to the house to do it. She’s walking more on her own and getting around pretty well. She has trouble with her peripheral vision as a result of her head injury. Walking poses a problem from that aspect so we stay pretty close to her.
All in all, she’s doing very well for now.
