David, Tug, and Brendan

I talked with David today, and he seems better. He was really sick because he said he'll probably be in the hospital until Saturday. When he got there, his oxygen level was 50%! He's on antibiotics and oxygen now and improving. His mom is still there with him making sure he's taken care of. That has to help! David sounded good and is resting and going to be able to breathe!

I miss his blog and am thinking about him while watching Top Chef. I forgot to ask if the TV works in his room now. Anybody know? I'll text him tomorrow and find out. I keep thinking about what he would write about this episode. So many perfect David remarks he could have made about Angelo and the immunity strategy. Can't wait for him to be back to his recaps! It's not the same without them.

You won't believe this, but Tugboat (Sam) called me last week! In fact, we've talked about three or four times now. I encouraged him to call David, and he did that, too! I'm proud of him. Sam's a sweetie!

So this has been quite the day talking to two nephews during the same afternoon!

My grandson Brendan has strep. They had planned to go to Tampa to visit Brian's stepmother, but Brendan got sick. They were able to get their flight changed and reschedule the trip to the end of next month. He was so sick and sounded pitiful on the phone. Poor little guy! Brendan has been on antibiotics and is feeling better now. I used to get strep throat when I first started teaching and felt so bad with it. Thank goodness he's on the mend.

Update: David's TV does work in his room now but doesn't get Bravo.

i nominate joy as our official keeper-tracker!!!

there once was a time i was unsure of how i felt about meeting up with people in the real life- my friends from my support group helped me get over that (note i met the mr. on plenty-of-fish) and now it's funny to me that i ever was so wary about it.

i think of all the uses of social networking this is the best- being able to broaden your circle and finding kindred spirits elsewhere!

It feels like getting together with friends after being in touch so much. We can tell pretty well what each other is like. It's more accurate than when we just had email and IM's to rely on. Pictures had to be sent by snail mail. I had some boring and "not as advertised" experiences then. Also blogs tell more about a person, and the photos help so much, too.

I'm glad Dvid is getting the care he needs, I was beginning to worry about him...thanks for the update on him :)

Well I was terrified of talking to anyone ever, Joy helped me through it. Now it feels like visiting with a dear friend I've known.
Glad to hear Brendan is better too!
