We are a quick half mile walk to a wonderful resort pool in our community and have been spending time there almost daily for the last week. Randy has been able to swim laps at the pool and finally feels like he has found an exercise that his body will tolerate. His stamina is improving and he is feeling encouraged. Randy was also able to hit golf balls this week with no drama.
He was excited yesterday to solve an engineering problem that had been plaguing him for a month. Our new home has an older solar hot water system that wasn't working correctly. A technician came out and serviced one aspect of the system but it still wasn't working correctly. Randy called the system developer and eventually got enough information to work on it himself. Yesterday he got it fully functional! Whoo-hoo! If it continues to work, the sun ought to heat enough water that we should rarely have to use the gas water heater.
We are in the process of getting bids to extend our patio and cover as the back of the house faces south and we get that western sun. Extending the patio and cover may require us to be here throughout the summer. If not, we hope to leave for a while in late July or August - hopefully in the trailer.
In the short-term, we've got those nasty medical scans to get through this month. His scans are on the 20th and our meeting with the doctor will be on the 28th. We covet your prayers!
