On Thursday I went up to the assisted living community to visit with my father-in-law. Dean and I enjoyed the open house and we both were gifted with potted flowers. Even though it was only one hour since Dean ate BBQ ribs at lunch, he enjoyed a hot dog and fruit that they were serving at the open house. We then went outside for a bit. It was a gorgeous day!
We went back upstairs and attended the ice cream social. Fun! The community has a lot of activities and he is adjusting better than expected.
Dean is getting a lot of attention from the nurses there. They love his nick name and call out "Dean-O" when he walks down the hall. He even asked me to order a special silver shampoo because he is being complimented on his nice hair. Ha. I bought him the shampoo, new clothing and a bunch of new stuff for his new apartment.
I wish I would have taken photos but I will try to remember when I go up today. I promised Dean we would go out to eat. We are thinking Dairy Queen would be a fun change. If he feels up to it, we may walk around Goodwill or Wal-Mart.
Yesterday I finished up a big project.
I bought 45 different cards and hand addressed them all to Dean. I then put stamps on them (not shown) and paper clipped a little paper that explained what we were doing.
He gets mail delivered to his apartment and I wanted him to get a bunch of mail this next week. We asked my husband's uncle and aunt to bring them to church Sunday and hand them out to Dean's family and friends.
