Back in Cherokee

Well, we are back in Cherokee.  Not home yet,  our house is under construction.  We will be staying at Andy's parents for a few weeks or until construction is over.  Andy is in lots of pain and moving very slowly.  He has to wear a brace made of hard plastic whenever he gets out of bed.  He has those big bulky boots on both feet.  He is walking on crutches.  We still have a long road ahead of us.  Our daughter Lacy has come to sit with Andy so I can get back to work.  I will try an keep you posted.

I'm starting to have second thoughts about Warrenton.  I'm worried it will just be to much for us.  We'll just see how much help we can round up and see what happens.  

Thanks fo much for your prayers and concern.  We really have felt it all.  We have been overwhelmed with the love that has been shown toward us.   Soon....Susan & Andy

Estate Sale

Hello junkers!  Do you know how hard it is when your husband is lying in a hospital bed and you drive by an Estate Sale sign?!!  Well, I did just drive on by, but man I wanted to stop.  I guess he really should come first!  For an update, yesterday he lost his nose tube, catheter, oxygen and heart monitor.  Feeling so much better.  He walked a couple of times and his stomach is finally working properly.  Hoping it will just be a few more days before we can go home.  Thank you all for your love and support.  Soon......Susan

Fred's (Andy) accident

Hello everyone,  i just found a computer at the place I'm staying for a few nights.  Andy was involved in a head on traffic accident on Monday afternoon.  He was air lifted to Brackenridge Hospital in Austin.  We have been here now for almost a week.  He has a broken back, right shoulder, left ankle and ribs.  His back injury was severe, no paralysis thank the Lord.  He had surgery Wednesday and they did a fusion at L1.  His back pain is much better but his stomach is still not working properly.  They drained fluid off his lungs yesterday and today he is feeling much better.  He still has the drain tube in his nose and many more tubes and wires.  He did get up today and walk.  He has a custom made brace that looks like a turtle shell.  He can not get out of bed without it.  He will have a lengthy recovery, but he will get there.  For those of you that are wondering about Warrenton, we have this wonderful team of family and friends that are going to help us get loaded up and delivered.  Not saying we will be there the whole time, but all that good junk will be there.  We have been overwhelmed with the acts of love that have come our way.  All your calls, cards, texts, emails, gifts will not ever be forgotten.  We send much love to Marcella and her family for their loss and hope to see them soon.  Thank you all again for your concerns.  With love,   Susan & Andy

I told Andy a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to bring my metal table and chairs that were out at Fred's World back to the house so we could have a place to sit and enjoy coffee and evenings outside.  I love to eat outside.  I know it's really hot right now, but we eat late anyway.  

Well, I found this great little set this weekend at a yard sale.  Perfect!  I think it will even fit on the front porch.  We'll see about that, but for now, I've already enjoyed my cup of coffee!

It's time to get very serious about Warrenton.  It is so hot, but I bet we get it done.  We have so much stuff this time - we need more space.  I'm off to clean some things.   Soon.....Susan
