At the last minute, we decided Harriet should join our daughter
In other news: On one of our afternoon walks down by the lake today (where we saw the reading girl without her cell phone) Bernie caught a lizard. I insisted he “drop it!” without success. Despite my protestations, he carried it in his mouth all the back to our front lawn. I’m not sure whether he dropped in the grass to eat it, or let it go. But it got away.
I couldn’t help but imagine how the lizard felt. One minute he was scooting across the blacktop trying to escape a monster, then suddenly he’s in another time and place. The grassy world he’s dreamed about.
I think that can happen to us sometime. We get wrapped up in fear and forget about our dreams. But they can come true.
A final note: The folks from Shands called today. I’m still in rejection, but not nearly as bad as before. We’re going to start another session of Solumedrol IV treatments tomorrow and then do another taper of prednisone.
