Today the hubster and I visited with his Mom and Dad who live near the middle of the State. It is always a nice time.
We met them at Cracker Barrel, which is an easy off/on the major highway route to their home, for lunch. We had a lovely lunch and chattered the entire time. Afterwards we returned to their apartment, where the hubster helped Dad flip their mattress so it would get even wear. Then the hubster went through the ankle surgery photos he emailed to his Dad, explaining what was going on and the ‘tendon gobber’ (aka cyst) that was removed. Yes, that is an ‘official’ term according to the Physician’s Assistant who has been seeing the hubster post surgery. Then we spent another hour just chatting and catching up on events in their campus community. Mom and Dad have lived in a CCRC (continuing care retirement community) for 14 years and have truly enjoyed it.
It was nice to see Dad feeling much more rested and alert after using a c-pap breathing machine every night for his sleep apnea. His doctor said he has much more oxygen in his system, clearly a good thing! And Mom is as good as ever!
A good day had by all.
