After 10 days in the hospital, yesterday I took my first shower and it felt GREAT! I was able to take sponge baths in the hospital with some help from Shan, and although good, not very effective. I washed more than a week’s worth of grunge off and it was EXTREMELY therapeutic. This was all followed by a long overdue beard trimming. That’s right, I’m not afraid to use our dog Bailey’s trimmer for my own grooming needs as well. Just as it takes a little more off my beard than I’d like, it used to make Bailey look naked — the poor guy. Man, I miss that little pup!
All cleaned up and feeling good, I’d like to say that Shannon and I hit the town but the truth is we took it easy and got caught up on a mountain of paperwork. Between our time on the road and in the hospital, you would be amazed at how quickly you fall behind. It was nice to have a day to make some calls and get caught up. In the afternoon, we finally got notice that the Volvo, our “home” on wheels, was ready to be picked up from the glass repair shop. After a week of waiting for replacement glass for the sunroof, it was finally ready! Thanks to Mom for making the long trek out to Pultneyville to drop us off. I was on edge the whole time hoping to find our baby in good condition; I have an attachment to that car that you wouldn’t believe. “Reunited and it feels so good!”
