Kevin was in a decent mood all morning, but this afternoon he just didn't want bothered by anybody - including me. So I left him at the hospital and spent the evening doing pretty much nothing. It was actually pretty nice.
I do have some great news - we may be closing on the house as early as next week. Yay!! I am thinking it will probably be the following week, but I would like it to be by Thursday before Breezy leaves to go home to PA for a month. She is planning to leave next Friday. I am just so excited by this. Once we close, we still have to do quite a bit of adaptation work and we also want to put a pool in. I need to find a company that can put some sort of intercom system in so that Kevin can buzz me from any room in the house (mainly from his bedroom to mine for middle of the night issues) and I also need to do some painting if possible before moving any furniture in. That may have to wait as I will probably do it myself because I am basically cheap, lol.
I also found an apartment for my parents to live in and have already signed a lease for them. We actually just moved some of the furniture I had bought for the house in and are planning to stay there on the weekends until either our house is complete or my parents arrive to move in. Their apt is in no way handicap accessible, but we are going to make do. It will just be nice to stay in a place with individual rooms to get Kevin used to that idea before moving into our house. It's also halfway between the hospital and our home so it will also get us used to the commute back and forth, which we will do five days a week for therapy.
I also forgot to mention earlier that I have eliminated the sitters for Kevin. He has come so far cognitively and he now understands when to use the call button so I feel it's time. I hope I am right about this, lol. It's such a scary decision, but we aren't going to have one when we go home so I need to cut the strings, I guess.
We never did find out anything about his infection, but it's gone so I am going to just forget it happened. Head in the sand, for sure, but there is enough else to deal with so it's what I'm going to do.
And now I am going to sign off and just relax. I am staying at my parent's apt tonight as I have appointments at the house tomorrow all day and it's only 10 minutes from here. Breezy has two of her friends, Morgan and Megan, here visiting and they are going to stay with Kevin tomorrow throughout the day. Hope Kevin is in a better mood!
