Roll On

Well, we're all relieved that Aunt Lois can get in and out easily now walking, or with walker, or wheelchair.
The million dollar ramp is in and quite a ramp it is.
This will take her right to the car door.

I imagine baby Gideon will think it's equally fine for cars and trucks that are his size.
Aunt Lois has been to the doctor she will have here and liked him a lot. He says she'll live to be one hundred. She's also ventured out to church and the weird warm weather has given her an opportunity to be out walking a wee bit.
Still, it's quite an adjustment for her to the many, many changes and losses this past year. I wish I could ease that part for her, but I know it will take time.
Last night, when I was visiting, she was relating why she no longer drinks carbonated drinks. She said, "My friend and I both had kidney surgery about the same time. The doctor told us not to drink soda. I quit, but she still drank Sprite and 7-up. She's been dead a long time now." We all about spit our food across the table. She says the funniest things.
Continued prayers for her broken heart are appreciated. She is quite the pioneer woman.


  1. That is quite a ramp! I still crave an occasional diet Pepsi. Maybe I should give it up!

  2. They did a great job on that ramp. I'm glad she is getting settled in and is getting out and about. I'm sure all the love you guys surround her with helps to ease the pain, at least a little.
