He’s Home.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After sleeping with the windows open again we had another wonderful night’s sleep that really left us feeling refreshed particularly since we slept past 8:00 this morning. The morning temperature in the apartment was 50 F (10C) which almost tempted Kathy to put on a sweater. According to the Weather Channel this was to be the last day that we’ll be seeing such cool temperatures for this time of year. 

After having breakfast and just settling at the computers the phone rang. Kathie had just talked to Ross at the hospital and was told by the doctor that if the test results came back favorably he could be discharged today. I explained that we would still bring her back to the hospital for a visit even if he wasn’t being released. 

By the time we finished our morning reading it was only minutes away from lunch. Kathy had been checking the fridge last night and figured that she needed to cook some of the food in there so that it wouldn’t spoil. To us if it spoils that is the same as throwing our money in the trash which cuts into our funds for traveling. 

We were just finishing lunch when Kathie called again to say that Ross was still waiting for his test results in hopes of being released. I reaffirmed what I told her before and told her we’d be picking her up in about fifteen minutes so that even if he wasn’t released she could visit with him. 

Arriving at their apartment Kathie had Liam her grandson with her. All the way to the hospital Liam excitedly talked about the four days of camping that he had just returned from with his mother Christine. 

Our game plan was to drop Kathie and Liam off so they could visit Ross while we ran an errand. Kathy and I were about a mile away from the hospital when her cell phone went off. Ross had been trying to reach Kathie but she wasn’t answering their phone at home. As he was telling Kathy this Kathie and Liam walked into his room. His news to everyone was that he’d just been released from the hospital and could go home. 

After a quick turnaround in a parking lot we were soon back at the hospital. I dropped Kathy off so she could locate our friends while I drove to the parking lot where I had to put some things in the back seat away in the tool cabinets in the truck bed. I also moved things around in the truck bed so we’d have room for Ross’s belongings near the tailgate. 

Quickly returning to the patient pick up area the nurse was just wheeling Ross out when I arrived. They both said they didn’t think he would be able to get in the truck just as I pulled my two step Rubber Maid stool from behind my back. They both laughed that I was prepared for someone that couldn’t climb high steps. Supporting Ross I made certain that he was safely secured before driving away. 

We had a pleasant but short visit driving back to their apartment. Using the steps once again I had Ross safely standing on the sidewalk where both Kathy and Kathie escorted him in their door while I moved the truck from a no parking spot. Once we were sure they were all safely home Kathy and I headed back to our apartment. 

Remember I said Kathy had been checking the fridge for foods that had to be cooked or it could spoil. For the next couple of hours we worked together cleaning and chopping food making soups and other dishes. We had a simple spaghetti with meat sauce for supper but do we ever have some good meals coming in the next few days. 

Who knows what tomorrow will bring. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
