VA came through like gangbusters!

Every day is like Christmas. First, we got a call that manual wheelchair is being shipped.

Yesterday a man came out and installed grab bars in the shower and next to the toilet.

Today we received the FreedomAlert system (like Life Alert), fully paid for by the VA.

Monday they are sending someone out to measure for a ramp.

So things are progressing with the VA.

Yesterday we got a call from a dentist at the University of Colorado. Our wonderful oncologist followed through on the dental issues Marshall has been having and he arranged a consult with this dentist to see if there is anything that can be done. We go for that consult on May 21.

But our primary care physician is leaving his practice suddenly and we are devastated about that. We love him. So now we have a new PCP to get used to.

Marshall's nausea has let up as far as first thing in the morning goes, but he still gets nauseous later in the day. I am trying my best to keep just a little bit of food in his stomach during the day because I think that would help but he simply won't eat anything until the evening and then he chows down pretty good. Oh well, what will be, will be.

Today the weather is absolutely gorgeous so he just left to go for a ride. Should do him good. He's been chomping at the bit all winter to get back on that motorcycle.
