News, updates, and happenings with the Kragnes family: Phil, our Seeing Eye Dogs, and (me) Rebecca.

Phil is back to himself today after a few days of pain medication and then hallucinations from withdrawal. They are now keeping him until the Coomaden blood thinner (sp) is at theraputic levels. Then they will let him go home.

Today is a damp, cold day with highs in the thirties. What a contrast from yesterdays seventies. I am glad the Cody family had a good day to put on our ralings and new mail box on the front steps. We had one raling until last year when the wind buffeted it with the door and destroy it. The mail box is bigger than our other one and is now at the bottom of the stairs. Phil and Dwight shopped for them right before the swelling in Phil’s arm got so bad that he went to the hospital Sunday night. Phil hoped to be home to help with the railings, but he’s excited to see them. People who have seen them tell me they look sharp.

Friday I had friends over for the day, and it just felt so good to have other people in the house. I don’t mind being alone during the day, because I’m used to it, but hate being alone at night. We had pizza, and it was fun to introduce people who didn’t know each other. The three of us had a very good time and plan to get together again this Friday. I also learned how to pplay Roll It (Iphone’s accessible yahtzee game) using two Iphones and blue tooth. I can’t quite get the hang of trying to connect with friends on the net, but that will come. Phil and I will be able to play yahtzee while he’s at dialysis, which is something we’ve both wanted.

I played for church last night and this morning, so it’s time to get my pre-malt shop nap, and what a great day for it!.

    Rebecca, so good to hear some good news from you after so much anxiety and worry and pain for poor Phil. It’s great to hear you sounding so upbeat! Have a nice nap and a good day. Penny and Willow

    Glad Phil’s doing better Rebecca.

    If we had multiple steps to our apartment building, I’d be uncomfortable without a rail myself. Fortunately, we only have two steps plus the one into our apartment.

    Keep us updated please, and I’m glad you enjoyed your guests.

    Jeanie and Trudy
