    Bingo Times Two! 

    Today has been pretty dull for the most part.  My PT and OT had rounds, so I didn’t have any therapies.  I slept a lot, watched some TV, browsed the Internet and that about sums up most of the day.  There was Bingo at 7PM though and there was a new Recreational Therapist with Joe (the RT that does the Bingo) and she helped me with my cards.  She’s a keeper because we won twice lol!  I got two pairs of socks and a notepad.  I picked out cups the first time, but I couldn’t hold them on and the second time I chose pens, but they had a rubber grip.  That wouldn’t have ended well with my latex allergy and all!  It was a lot quieter without Ray there to shout out Bingo though.  He went home yesterday.

    I do have an appointment with my OT and the seating person tomorrow though and I’m really hoping it goes well and I have a demo chair I can use on my own soon and that the powers that be here  comes to their senses and let Duke work here very soon!  As always, I would appreciate any luck you could send mine and Duke’s way!

      I was up in the mountains yesterday, and from the same spot I had a good view of both Duke Mountain and Kimberly Peak (no, I’m really not making this up; I have the pics to prove it). Of course I was thinking of you both and interpreting this as a good omen. I wish it so, anyway.

        😀 I like the area you are talking about! I really truly hope you are right and it is a good omen!

    Some Advice About Love From A Veteran 

    I have a volunteer assigned to me to come get me out of the room three times a week. She stopped by on Thursday to chat for a couple of hours and today she came by for another couple of hours. She is really nice and is the same volunteer that helps me at Bingo. (We have lost many games together lol!)

    We went outside and after circling the parking lots and sitting on the patio for awhile we went over to the Veteran’s home to see a little dog. As we were about to leave one of the veterans called us over saying he wanted to serenade me! I had met him at the music I went to at the Veteran’s building on Tuesday night. He is a complete riot to be around! He never did get around to dinging to me, but the three of us chatted for a while and he asked me on a date lol! I told him I’d be by on Tuesday for the music. I bet he was quite the character when he was younger (he still is lol!) He made a very good point though that I hope I never forget. After talking about his late wife and how they treated every day like they were still courting he asked us if we knew the secret to a long loving relationship. He said that too many young people when asked say they argue and fight with their boyfriends or girlfriends and that their relationship is “OK”. He said the trick is to only marry someone who you already get along really well with and no one will be expected to change after you are married. Some great advice from someone I plan to visit again…

    You Never Quite Know Around Here 

    One thing about rehab (at least here at the Miller Center) is that you never know your schedule until the morning. When my nurse came in this morning she checked the schedule and the only thing that was written in for me was Physio. at 1PM. Just after breakfast she checked again and OT was added to th board for 11AM. There’s the usual hour of Monday Bingo with RT at 2PM and I’m not even sure what else is going to pop up on the schedule. It seems everything so far is in one big chunk with a break for lunch mixed in.
