It’s been awhile so I figured I should update everyone. Again, no news on the blog is good news!
Things have been going great! Jim does have abdominal pain several times a
week but he says it’s something that he doesn’t mind living with compared to his old crappy lungs. He is also back to his normal weight (about 160 I think). Although he finds it hard to eat, he is really good about getting calories in him.
Mom, Amanda (a/k/a The Rock) and I went to NYC to see the play Wicked in mid-November. It was a great show and
we had awesome seats. Why is the wicked witch the way she is? Is she really dead???? You have to see the show!
We went to my brothers’ house for Thanksgiving. The entire family was there; my 2 brothers, their kids (Andy, Amanda a/k/a The
Rock and Tyler), my sister-in-law, Jim and my parents along with Amanda’s boyfriend, Chris. We had the usual turkey, potatoes, green bean casserole (yuck,
everyone else likes it so I made it), sweet potatoes, corn etc. Here’s the standard picture of dad cutting the bird:
I had a second trip to NYC in the beginning of December. This
time it was with Jim…FINALLY! I’ve wanted to walk around NYC for many years with Jim but either we didn’t want to take the chance of him getting sick from the cold or his lungs wouldn’t allow him to walk around. Needless to say, we had a great time! We walked for miles with no need for a break except to rest our legs. We were even dodging in between people on the street because they were walking too slowly for us. Every once in awhile I’d look back only to find Jim either next to me or in front of me. Over 1 ½ years later and I still can’t get over him walking at the same pace as me. The joke of the trip was that Jim’s LUNGS worked fine but the LEGS…well, they were hurting both of .
