I could do a bit of an update

The image is from the park. I am looking through a long trellised walkway covered with wisteria, through a newer gazebo, to the Constitution Memorial. It is my way of saying I am looking to the future but not seeing clearly. Although the occupational therapist thought hubby was "good to go" his doctor, who signs off on his healing, says not until July 4. So that means another week of me taking hubby to work. In that week he will have Physical Therapy, a cardiologist appointment, and a physical with his primary care physician. I think the primary wants to see a cardiologist report before releasing Bob to drive. At the end of next week we will go visit family in Oklahoma. My daughter had been going to visit in early July, but I told her with our uncertainty it would not work. She is now talking about a little time in August. I hope it works out. The first two weeks in August will be back to school orientation, along with four days of summer school for two students. I suppose that is all I really know at this time. The physical therapist was very pleasantly surprised with how hubby is progressing. Hubby also has bought a rod and reel to do some practical therapy with his right shoulder and arm, which hurt still. Yesterday he began tinkering with his cars again. He is coming back.

@KristenH I guess it is in how I choose to look at it. I am grateful that I have a job that has me off just at the time I was needed most. My daughter says that this is the summer God had planned for me, whether I planned this way or not.

I am sorry you have to bring him around for another week, but it is better to be safe. Your husband seems to work hard to be back soon on his feet.

That is wonderful news! The more he does the better he will get. Tony will get the Immune therapy late July he is not excited but if it keeps the cancer in remission he will do it. I am planning me a little get away soon, I need it badly.

He is so very determined to not be on the losing end of this. It was quite an experience.Lots of prayer for him and he knows it. Both while he was having the cancer treatments and then with the stroke as well.

It is nice that your husband is doing well @GardenGerty but it still does not make sense they would let him work, but not drive. Not that he should be driving too soon, but doesn't it seem insurance should pay for a driver? What if a person is single? Do they walk to walk? Pay for a cab?

Most people at his age would not be working. I am wondering if the Dr. who has to sign off is waiting for him to be seen by the cardiologist(tomorrow) or just feels like he should refrain from driving for a month. Insurance pays for very litttle.
