October, November, December 2011:
      October 6, 2011 - James D got home late Monday.  He was able to walk down for a visit with us today.  He says he still feels very weak, but I guess that is to be expected after 3 weeks in the hospital.
      October 10, 2011 - Yesterday was the annual Methodist Harvest Day, and we attended.  It was the first time we had made it to church since we got out of the hospital, last month.  I took my cripple cart so I was able to ride around outside.  We enjoyed it, the food was great, and I got some Pictures.  James D walked down and sat with us for awhile, that afternoon.  He seems to be doing a little better, but will take some time to recover.  Chris Nowell, James D's son-in-law cut the grass for us, on Saturday, and did some weed eating.  They have to take Linda to the hospital, today, and James on Tuesday and Wednesday, since he couldn't get both doctor's appointments the same day.  We still have the Sta-Home nurse checking on us both, once a week, and a Sta-Home therapist comes twice a week to work with me on my leg.  It seems to be helping, and it is gradually getting better, but I am still on 2 canes, and I can't move it much without pain.  I am able to drag it into the car, so I can drive.  James stopped by about 1 PM with our paper, which he had walked to the road to get.  I got him to sit and rest before going on home.  He seems to be doing much better.
      October 28, 2011 - I haven't posted an update in awhile.  My body continues to fall apart and Sue's Alzheimer's continues to get worse.  She now sleeps 16-18 hours most days. Since my hospital stay.  I am back to hobbling around with my canes and can drive again.  We don't get out much, any more.  I waked up Sue, at 9:30, on Sunday, and we went to Sunday School, but she sat at the table with her head down and then said she needed to go home.  She slept on the couch the rest of the day.  She went with me to a Dr appointment, on Wed.  She won't stay home alone, even when all she does is sleep.  She remembers everything from 50 years ago, things over the last 10 years are a bit fuzzy and the last week or so is gone.  James D Freeny, Sue's brother, has been home from the hospital for some time, now, and is gradually recovering.  He walked down for a visit, this afternoon.   My Sta-Home therapist was here for the last time today and said I am doing well enough she can't justify any more visits, to Medicare, so guess I am better.
