Journal entry by Ginger Reile

Hello! We hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! Our son Brandon, flew here from Idaho to be with us & help us out. Ken has been in the garage doing too much lifting & drilling etc. He & Brandon have a few projects going. All his work has lead him to have swollen feet & 3 days of pain from doing too much. That hasn’t happened for awhile now, so his 6 weeks are up on Dec 14th but he has been acting like it for a few weeks now. It is hard when he is feeling better, not to do what he wants to do. He still has all of his other health issues, but we are used to those. He is not in pain & he can somewhat eat. We need to explore a dilation so food doesn’t get hung up like it does. He needs to be fitted for a mouth piece for his uppers, so it covers his nasal passage because his drink goes up & out his nose. Not a pleasant thing to happen especially in a restaurant & it is spuratic. 
Our house is for sale & we have had many showings. Our realtor said an offer is coming on Monday. It looks like Brandon may be staying longer to help with the move! So more excitement, looking for a smaller house here in this area & being snowbirds to Rachelle & Brandon’s. 2021 is looking pretty good so far! Thank you all for your concern for us & the prayers were huge! Couldn’t have done it without you all!
Have a Blessed Christmas & Happy New Year. 
Lots of Gratitude! Ken & Ginger
