another update on Terry
Terry has been home for 24hrs and seems to be adjusting well. He went and converted an old cell phone Jeff had to his number since his is fried. He also took Sylvia back her lawnmower that he was working on. We met for dinner tonight at Rosa's Tortillia Factory for Taco Tuesday. He said he had already eaten dinner at Jeff's but said he would join me. He ended up eating some chips n salsa and a taco. I reached over and squeezed his hand and told him that I was glad he was still alive! I also told him that he seemed to be doing well and bet he enjoyed getting his face shaved (he wasn't fond of his beard that grew while he was in the hospital). He smiled slightly and got a faraway look in his eyes. I didn't know what he might be thinking, but thought it best to not push any more conversation and just let that statement sink in. He came over for a few minutes while I tried to locate a battery for his phone online and get that ordered for him as the one he has is not holding a charge or lasting very long. He didn't stay as he wanted to get home and to bed. He has his doctor appointment tomorrow with his PCP and he also hopes to connect with his counselor thru the disability program he is on.
