Since 18 days he is home now, had 2 follow-up visits with doctors next to the 3 dialyses per week - and he has home care orchestrated by Pasco County, 3x per week physical/occupational exercises and Nurses visits.
We received a telephone number to call the Area Agency of Aging to receive free help of all kind when needed, to fullfill the wish to stay at home and out of a nursing home. So far we want to stay independent. But this non-profit Pasco County agency will be surely contacted by us for a registration when we feel that the time has finally come......
Since I have to drive Dieter around wherever he needs to be, I pleaded to get another car. Dieter agreed. We spent the entire afternoon on Sept. 22. in a dealership in Lutz, FL, to leave our 20-year old C3500 Chevy Truck ( dually with an 8 foot bed and an heavy hitch fixed on the bed to tow a heavy RV) there and drive off in the evening with a white 2016 Hyundai Accent - and monthly payment to make during the next 5 years. MY (!) car is a woman's dream, after I had driven my last sedan in Pennsylvania 20 years ago, I think I am in driver's heaven. The parking will surely be very different, I mean easy.
We both hope that the fall will be better regarding health. The sommer was a torment for Dieter as well as for me. Hopefully his strong will to get better holds on. The slowly trickling in snow-birds from the north will provide more life around us in the park, we can sit outside again without being baked to a crisp by the relentless hot Florida sun.
With a greeting from our lot 61 in Zephyr Palms RV Park - here is the picture:
