Long day. Got surrender check on Dad's policy and was disappointed to find it under $4,000. That sure won't go far. If lucky, it might pay for repair of his hearing aid - if it can be repaired. His audiologist is one of the most caring people I've ever met. I spoke with her today, planning to set up another appointment to take him in. But first she wanted to know all about how he was doing (he's known her longer than twenty years) and where he is now. She said she will go to him! Possibly Wednesday evening at earliest. She will go ahead and make another mold of his ear in case he has to order a new hearing aid, but will also check to see if it can be repaired since it appears all the electronics are there.
Dad was quick to have me notice that his ankles weren't swollen but his abdomen is still very distended. I spoke with his nurse before I left and she updated me on lab tests and x-ray that had been done. They lowered the Lasix dose back to where it was, but x-ray showed small amount of fluid around his heart. He will see the nurse practitioner tomorrow.
My husband, already a good cook, has been watching the Food Network and getting inspired to create new dishes. Saturday, he decided to try making an Alfredo sauce from scratch. Usually I resort to Bertollini jarred Alfredo sauce because my husband prefers red sauces, or as they say, gravy. He put his sauce over bow tie pasta. It was so good! I had some of the leftovers tonight and was amazed at how well it reheated. Tomorrow he has promised to make pepper steak, another dish he makes better than I do.
So next kit colors are:
But back to new kit. I happened upon a designer resource by Daelman's Designs that was so cute, I had to have it. In part because it featured one of my favorite colors. So the idea for this kit was born. Here is your first zip:
