Julie and Jack came to visit this morning. Elaine is feeling better but still not up to par nor really able to keep up with Jack. We were happy to see them both since we hadn't seen them for some 10 days. They were here when I came home form coffee, and I commented on how he had grown and his hair had gotten darker. Elaine had also talked of his having grown before I got home. He too isn't up to his normal self but still a great joy to have around. His vocabulary continues to grow to keep up with all the things he already knows, such as where things are around our house. Elaine felt good enough today to do a washing and went along down to Walmart this afternoon. This was the first time she had been out of the house since over a week ago. Carolyn called this evening after having been to Lincoln. We were also pleased to have phone calls from Verlon and Tim. They all keep up with us pretty well by reading my blog pages, but having a telephone conversation is next thing to being here and we appreciate them.
