20080731 – Update on Funeral – Delay a week

Judy’s funeral has been delayed a week so that Al could attend both the showing and the service, as his doctors would not furlow him for both this week. He is making good progress in his recovery. The concern was over the probability of a setback in his recovery.
Please continue to watch the above link for the final date and time. Also, the guest book is limited in it’s entry, even though it shows more than will be shown on the acceptance page. Of course I found this out the hard way.
My comment
"You are the mother of my beloved Anna. Regardless of your saying"
was really
"You are the mother of my beloved Anna. Regardless of your saying that I am your only son-in-law, but not necessarily my favorite, you are my favorite mother-in-law. Your physical presence will be missed. You are every in our hearts and are loved. Rest well and be at peace"

20080727 – a fast week with many highs and lows

Al and Judy: Judy’s Funeral is scheduled for Friday, Showing Thursday Night 4-9 at East Washington Flanner and Buchanan. Al is make good progress, he started oatmeal yesterday, was out of bed and was able to sit in a chair. Friday he was moved from St. Francis South to St. Francis Beach Grove Select One care. Still many days of recovery needed but he is dong better. My Dad has finished the floor of his garage/workshop this week. On top of that he made the score of the decade with a great deal on a new black top driveway since he was close to the Pendelton Pike project. Kudos Dad for getting a great bargin. I am way overdue for a bike ride with all the choas that comes with hospitals visits and a funeral being added into a very busy regular schedule. Anna and I where able to car pool this week. We should be able to carpool two to four times a week with the addition of my latest client to my practice. I plan to ride the bike the other 2 days. It is straight downtown via the Monon which is a dream of mine come true. Zach had his townie 21 stolen at Marsh, which is his place of work. More to come on that, one of those nobody has time as it is a low priority to the parties involved. Matt and Zach have been asked to be pallbearers. Matt is enjoying the last fragments of summer vacation. Also a Happy Birthday shout out to Rhonda today:-)


Yesterday was even harder. All news was worse to bad. I expect a funeral soon as the life support drugs and related systems will be withdrawl today for Judy. Al has taken a turn for the worse and will undergo surgery for his colon perferations at 11:30am.. I am onsite at a client, so little information will beforth comming till I get a call or text from Anna. Thanks to all that have called, emailed or stopped by.

20080715 – Judy and Al could use your thoughts and prayers

All, a quick note that Judy, my mother-in-law is in the hospital again, admitted Sunday and appears to have suffered a stroke. We are all still awaiting diagnosis and next steps, as there is a loss of mobility and some cognitive imparment. Then today Al is under going some tests as he is experiencing some difficulties with abdominal pain and is being checked out. Sooo if you can, please send some positive thoughts and prayers their way in a way that is acceptable to you.

School has started again :-)

Matt Started back to School Yesterday – Sophmore this year at New Palestine High School.
I like it better when school is in, as I feel our family is on a better schedule. The boys meander all over the clock if they don’t have a school schedule to follow no matter how insistant we get…. Kids/Parents same old battle.
Oh yeh, if you want to see how bad you can make your teenagers day, fill a lunch box with good food and have it ready by the door with his name on it. Scooby doo decorations get you extra points! (never miss with mom).
Zach starts at the Kelly Business School at IUPUI on Monday, with orientation for the KBS Sunday.
Anna and I where talking about the first day when we put Zach on the Bus for Kindergarten at Grassy Creek Elementery.
Hey we will be empty nesters in 7 years!!!!! ( as long as we don’t have any boomerangs).
