Wednesday +261 (Evening)

As posted earlier, we were released on Friday at about 5:00 PM. We were packed and on the road by 6:15 PM for an all night drive to Pryor. The weather was rain, drizzle and fog with a temperature of about 32 degrees until we reached the middle of Iowa. In Iowa the weather began to improve and we had clear sailing once past Kansas City. We arrived home at 4:00 AM. For those that don't already know I bought a plane to shorten this, now regular, commute. I will have it by the end of February. It is a Cirrus SR22-GTS. It will shorten the 10-11 hour commute to 2.5 hours.

Jackie has had some serious ups and downs since our return home. Even a house full of kids did little to help her at times. Today was a real struggle. She continues to have severe nausea and bone pain at times. She also continues to run a low-grade fever. Of course we have no idea why the fever still occurs. Today she had "10 of 10" bone pain and was not able to get off the bed/sofa until late afternoon. The pain pills are addictive and she is very hesitant to take them but at a certain point there is really no choice. The good news is that the pain meds are very effective. We continue to hope that whatever is causing the problem will eventually resolve. Of course this could still be related to the C-Diff problem but as time passes we must begin to consider other alternatives.

Until Later....

Bruce and Jackie
