Our trip to Georgia was far as the reunion goes.  We were able to see cousins, aunts and uncles we hadn't seen in years...some 40 years!  We saw the place where our house once stood when we lived there.  (A very special neighbors house was still there.)  We also saw where our brother and grandparents were buried.  Three of my sisters were there...Jennie, of course, who now lives with us, Theresa, with her family, from Alabama and Pam, our baby sister from SC, with her caretaker, Doris. 

I was sad that my family there in Georgia never got to know Terry as he was.

The trip was very hard on Terry.  He was very uncomfortable after we left Georgia, so we stopped in Alabama for two nights so he could sleep a whole day.  Then we took two more days to drive home so he wouldn't have to stay up so long.

I had already started feeding him through his feeding tube some before we left, now it's all the time.  Today, however he did eat a few bites of food.

He's been in bed most of the this past week, just getting up a few minutes at a time.  He does seem to be getting a little stronger, but slowly.  Hopefully, I'll have better news to report in a few days.

Please keep him in your prayers.

  1. Haven't been on here in a while. It is so good to hear from you and find out about the Georgis trip. For some reason I can't remember you living in Georgia. I was wanting to come but Frank and I already had plans. I would have loved to see your family. Mom (our homebase mom) has been keeping me informed of Terrys condition.I hate he hasn't been hisself lately. I know that also puts a lot of work on you. I'm still hopeing and praying he comes back around to doing the things he was doing. It felt good to have the Old Terry back!!!!Wheather you hear from me every day or once a month always remember ya'll are always in my prayers.I spend a lot of my time with my girls or mom...but I am going to try to start being home a little more now. Mom still has a lot of sad days ..which is to be expected. We all miss dad so much. Take care Love Cindy
