H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

LAISSEZ LES BON TEMPS ROULLEZ

It looks like H2's pending discharge is a go. Linda is waiting for Health Services to make arrangements for his care at home, which we expect will be the three of us learning how to give him his IVs. Rumor has it that it isn't difficult. Uh-huh. We've heard THAT song before.

Lunch today was excellent!! Met with Major Dad, Patti, and Molly McPharty (MMP). We met at the 'Teau and enjoyed delicious salads. I'm happy to once again have access to my favorite lunch beverage: decaf iced coffee with heavy cream and sugar-free hazelnut flavoring. Yessirreeee!

Since the Bears' ignominious defeat of our beloved Saints, the city seems to have settled down, however briefly, into its normal routine. A few Saints auto banners still fly, but they are dwindling.

It won't be long, however, until purple, green, and gold take over the town as Mardi Gras looms, and the Carnival parades are in full swing, drawing folks from near and far. Then spring will spring and Jazzfest will be here, once again bringing in visitors from around the nation and around the world.

Thank heaven for these brief moments throughout the year which afford the opportunity for the citizens of New Orleans and the surrounding areas to put aside for a few days the constant stress of living in an area that is in a state of rebuilding, yet is far, far away from being anywhere near close to complete.

i am sure everyone will be relieved to hear that H2 is back home. It's good to hear that things appear to be on the uphill climb. my heart & many, many others have been sending him "happy thoughts" and our hearts go out to H2. if there is ANYTHING, that i can do to help or assist with, PLEASE, PLEASE don't hesitate to ask.
