The steri-strips were taken off today as in the Post-Op Directions for Day 10. His incision has no redness nor infection and looks to be healing okay.
Julie thought Grampa needed some sunshine...so she helped him go out and sit on the back porch.
Just after going outside, Kathy, our sweet daughter-in-law--Gary's wife, came with McKell and Jacob, to pick up Isaac.
Kathy had just been to Jacob's 3rd grade call had just had a "Mother's Day" afternoon at school. The mother's had come for the gift of having their children give them a hand massage and paint their fingernails.
Jacob did quite well for a 9-year-old.
Grama A is having lunch...
Grama A's recliner is next to the recliner Walt is in. It is also next to the fireplace. The rooster cookie jar by her is filled with treats...this week it has Hershey Kisses and mini-Snickers. The great-grandchildren know that if they go over to Grama A and say "Cock-a-doodle-doo" she will let them lift the rooster's lid and choose a treat.
What she enjoys the very most is to have us read to her from her life story. Her memory is still keen for those events way back in her earlier life.
Jacee was dressed in blue yesterday, so I got another photo of her with her BYU blue bouquet. (See yesterday's post that explains the reason for her bouquet.)
Julie's grade school ballroom students did an evening performance last night. Here are Julie and Jacee ready to leave for it.
They had a quick rehearsal after school for the performance. One of the boys was doing a cart wheel--which is part of one of the dances. He landed on his arm wrong and Julie could tell that it was badly broken. She had an ambulance come take him to the hospital.
The markers she's holding are for the dance team to sign a "Get Well" card for him.
One last photo from Thursday, May 10....Grandchildren in costumes when Maddie, 4, and Isaac, 6, were playing. Oh the fun and imagination of childhood!
I said to Walt this morning "You'd think Heavenly Father would want to heal you quickly and then he would have fewer prayers to listen to."
Nonetheless, we are so thankful for the many prayers being expressed for Walt's recovery. Thank you for your love and caring.
