Today Kevin and I went over to Breezy's place to visit. It is the first time that Kevin has been there and it was nice to get him out of our house and visiting someone else. He just walked around and was generally nosy and then he and Chris checked out Chris' new gun (not loaded - no worries) and Kevin couldn't resist acting like "The Terminator" who single-handedly welded a gun. It was a nice little visit and I'm glad we went.
Other than that, we didn't do much of anything today. I forgot to tell you guys that yesterday Kevin helped me cook dinner though. I put him to work cutting strawberries for the shortcake and he helped make the lemonade. I am hoping to get him to help me more in the kitchen because I really want him to learn to fend for himself as much as possible. He's gotten very lazy while being down and now we need to kick him back into shape. He's not always liking it, but it still needs to be done.
We had planned to go to one of the missions today, but it pretty much rained all day. I am hoping we get to go one day this week - I want to take some photos. I want Breezy and Chris to go too as Breezy's belly is really popping out, but we'll have to see. Chris works a lot of hours so we may have to wait a bit for him to be able to go too. It's ok though - there are lots of places to take photos in SA.
And now I need to get back to investigating neurosurgeons in the Tampa/Sarasota area. We are intending to go home for a visit at the end of next month and I want to have some meetings with prospective docs set up. If we can't find a doctor that can handle Kevin's needs, we probably will not be able to go back home. We will then have to sell the house (not easy in FL right now) and move here. Frankly, it tires me to even think about this, but we have to have someone that can handle Kevin's situation. And we have to settle somewhere. This is really tiring not knowing where you will be at any given time.
Truthfully, this is the place that Kevin gets the best medical care and if I had known how bad the neurosurgeons were at the Tampa VA we would have never bought a house there - even though we were told we needed to.
Hindsight though, I guess.
The only problem is that my family all moved to FL to help us and we can't very well ask everyone to pack up and move again now, can we? Honestly, dad's just not well enough to handle the move again anyway.
So for now, let's just hope we can find a doctor that is capable of handling Kevin's prognosis and how much work it entails.
Has anybody ever used any of those internet physician review sites? Recommendations, anyone?
