Tom's physical activity is improving daily. More mobility in his right arm and leg!
Tom clearly misses his visits and I hope this will help him a bit since we are all in the same boat!
Depression - this was serious and I was deeply worried. I call in the morning and evening and this seems to lift his spirits. I still realize that his ability to express himself is not "tom" but I have been teasing him that every time he says "sorry" he owes me a dollar. Yesterday I told him I was going to be rich if he does now kick it up a notch.
Garden news. Supplies are coming in for the raised beds and we are in need of seeds/ or plants. Maybe we can send Tom a packet of Zone specific seeds that we love and attach a note to tell him why??? Just a thought.
Yesterday's call left me feeling very optimistic and very joyful as there were many "Tom" minutes where I got a real laugh. When they called they asked me what I was doing and I replied that I was stuffing my face with chocolate and I could hear a "Tom" groan in the background! (Teehee)
Keep those cards and letters coming and every time you go outside and see "Spring" say a little prayer for Tom.
