Yesterday Terry had an excellent check up with his Dr.
He is now doing the more "advanced physical therapy" each day,
walking with only the cane in the house during the day.
Told him all he has to focus on is doing the PT, getting enough rest,
good food and such for the next month.
We don't see his Dr again until a month from now.
Thank you each and every precious one of you for your caring words, prayers, thoughts
and to Orchid in Japan your precious "pages" for Terry.
I have a lovely, lovely surprise this morning.
My older daughter, Heather had her niece and nephew stay over with her three boys,
the last three days.
My life right now revolves around Terry. I was trying hard to find a time I could
meet up with Heather and all the grands, but it did not look good.
While getting ready for the PT this morning, Heather texted me to tell me they were
all on their way up!
Kaylee and George wanted to see Grampa before they went home and the boys
wanted to check up on him also to see his "leg" now with the ace bandage off.
Since Terry had been doing his own PT before breakfast he was resting before the more
strenuous PT appt and so each of the grands went in to "surprise" him one at a time.
Then we let Grampa rest some more and went outside to take pictures!
I am hugging Kaylee and Kevin (cousins)
George is sitting down. He is Kaylee's little brother.
They live in Lakeland and I don't get to see them nearly as much as I would like.
Kaylee and a better picture of George.
This is Jacob, who just turned 9 on the 19th of July.
We are attempting to get 5 children and one mommy lined up for a picture!
Bless my daughter's heart, she is trying to get Jacob to line up and I am
laughing with him.
Children has such boundless energy, don't they?
Seeing all 5 of my grands at once was such a precious gift today!
They had already been to the hands on children's museum earlier in the morning.
It was hot outside.
But I was having such fun watching them.
So thankful my daughter's and their hubby's are such good parents,
the my grandchildren are healthy and well taken care of.
Just feeling my blessings along with the great progress Terry is making each day.
Kevin and Kaylee get the award for being the best "liner uppers".
Dylan, on the right is our "baby", but don't tell him that!
He is 2 1/2 but can keep up with any of them.
We only have one princess granddaughter and her name is
Kaylee Lynn Deitrick.
Guess who her middle name is named after? lol
She and Aunt HaHa (their nickname for Heather) did their nails and
hair this morning.......
somehow surrounded by all the boys!
Kaylee looked beautiful!
However, like her cousins and her brother she loves baseball/softball.
She is even on a "travel" ball team that played around the state in the summer!
God bless her and her dad who is a coach!
When I see my grandchildren, cannot help but wonder how time went
These are my three children through the years.
Kellie, closest to me, Heather and Bobby
My "little angels" for our Christmas card 1981

My wedding, Kathy, Heather and Kellie
Kathy was a friend.
Bobby walked me down the aisle, he was 13.
When the minister asked who "give this women",
Bobby and his sisters all said, "We do".
Bless his heart, Terry not only married me, he inherited a almost grown up
Yes, I was very happy that day. I took my glasses off for the professional pictures
(could not to walk up the aisle or I would not have seen a thing, lol)
Since the wedding was pre CI, I could not hear and trying hard to see
the photographer, lol.
None the less, I love this picture to pieces.
Goodness, I sure hope I did not bore you with all these family pictures
Just felt so blessed and wanted to share my family.
Next time I will finish the Colorado trip and then take you all to Sedona 2007
Everyone say bye now!
