Janet’s visit home today ramped up when Heather and Allan made their first appearance and were able to officially tell Janet of their engagement. I had told Janet of Allan’s intent to propose a couple of weeks ago and she was quite pleased with the news. When I told her she would see Heather today and asked what news she would have for her she said “that So and So was going to ask her to marry him”. We are thrilled to have Allan join the family officially as we feel he has been a part of it for along time already. Blessings to both of you!
Heather and Janet did some Christmas baking this afternoon in addition to some measuring spoon karaoke and some wheelchair dancing. She enjoyed the banter from everyone and hung in there enough to stay for dinner which I went and picked up from KGH. Chicken and gravy with mashed potatoes and puréed vegetables is what she got and she plowed through most of it.
My mom and I took Janet back to rehab and I gave her a light stretch before getting her ready for bed. She got quite chatty when we got to the familiar and quiet confines of her room. I think we need to be careful with the amount of “partying” she does.
Praying for a restful night and a fun family day tomorrow.
