Well I went over to Beths house since I had not seen her in 2 days and wanted to see first hand things were going. She looked great, was feeling good and even had some smiles to share. I fixed the front door handle and made of back up of her work computer. We talked for a while and lounged around. Later in the day we went to Walgreens (YEAH). I am not sure why people make it a big deal. Put the wheel chair in her van. Grab a tank of O2 and made sure it’s full, put it in the van. Then either stand really close to Beth or take her hand and she walked to the van with out issue. It was maybe 30 feet away and 95 degrees out. Drive to Walgreens (handicap tag on van), parked right in front of the door. Take out wheelchair, she wanted to try shopping without the O2, which I was fine with as it was in the car. So we rolled down to glasses and found a pair and then headed over to puzzle book and found 2 she liked. Next off to the checkout counter and back to the van. All was very easy, I would say my only complaint was that the handles on the wheelchair are too low for me and there were no extensions.

Beth was quite pleased with her outing and enjoyed not asking for permission from the sometimes overbearing brothers. I too was glad she was willing to go. I will admit she was scared at first going out as it had been over a week and respiratory issues can hard to recover from when the environments change.

So there is a meeting of the minds on Monday, Vicki (nurse), Kay (social worker),her brothers, a friend and myself. Beth is moving in with one of her brothers and so we are coordinating the move and then the schedule of who can be with her when. I said I could not commit to a day due to work but I could fill in if needed. I also said that I may just come down to visit and if the “on-duty” person had to do things they could leave or whatever. (Once things are setup and I test the speed of the Wifi I may take a day on the schedule we will just see)

Well there is a side story to tell but right now Ill wait till I know more.
