Feb. 27

Good morning, dad slept well and is up enjoying the day.
A quick note, I know dad is home and he has many, many dear friends that want to talk to him and wish him well but at the moment I think he needs a few days to figure out his new routine. He will be taking 13 different medications two and three time a day in addition to the pump Joanna will have to replace the iv bag everyday. This needs to be the primary focus for the next few days. To be blunt if dads pump stops working so does he. Utah also wants to see and talk with everyone, Joanna and I have to tell him the same thing, one thing at a time. Normally the nurses come in very couple of hours to administer the meds, Joanna does this now, the times are very specific because of the number of meds he needs throughout the day. I hope everyone understands.

Hey, Bruce & Joanna & Duncan -
Welcome home! You must be out of your minds (more than usual, I mean). I've got two good escape books for you, and I'm going to come by and drop them off in one of the cars in the driveway - don't worry, I won't come in! There's a rotten flu going around Nevada County, so be extra careful about visitors.
Sheesh, did we miss you...
