Activity time

It seems we are always in "activity time".  Yesterday besides a doctor's appointment and some necessary shopping, we visited Joy at Christian Health Care Center in Lynden, WA.  She was with other clients at the activity session.  Joy was working on a puzzle of sorts and when we arrived she stopped and we each sat down with her around the table.  Margie on one side and I on the other.  The main part of the activity for Joy, we know, is the last round, when refreshments are served.  We helped her through that part then took her to her room where she wanted to lie down and rest.  We got her comfortably settled in the bed and then after a short visit, left for home.She likes to take a nap about that time each day.  In town, Margie stayed in the car most the time and I got the things on the list.  At one store she did the shopping while I went nearby to another.  It was great she was able to do this alone.  Her pain level is high most the time and we look forward to surgery day although we can imagine how complicated therapy will be.  But we will cross that bridge when we get to it. In the meantime, thanks for praying for us.
