Earlier, I used my food saver for the first time. I packaged sirloin tips, cube steak and two chunks of pork butt, all of which I had bought on sale. It works like a charm.

Everyone has nixed that idea. Like they nixed my idea about getting rid of the furniture, until Mr. Munky said he wanted it gone. I'll do as you suggested do it anyways. It's my bathroom, I'll do what I want.

Apparently besides having a mounted chair to the wall. He needs special mats, and a shower head that's easily accessible so that he can shower on his own. Guess I'll find out Sunday.
I have the following and it is the best for everyone. I love mine.

Delta 9-Spray Slide Bar Hand Shower in Chrome-51504 - The Home Depot

And don't fret about the tiles. They have special drills for such purposes.

You're such a busy bee! Glad things are settling into place for your big day on Thursday. I'm sure your DH will be just as happy coming home as you are to have him back.

He can't wait to get here. We did send pics. Showed him more yesterday when we visited.That was one of the best visits yet. He was very relaxed, rested up, smiling and not in pain the whole time. Ate all of his gourmet dinner.Maybe it was good that he had a day alone without us around.

While we were going room to room checking what needed to be done.
We also replaced wall switches, sockets and plates.We had fun pretending to be him. He's comical. Found a screwdriver that someone had dropped and left in the wall when they built this house. It's mine now!

I txted him when our guys and I were 10 minutes away."Almost there"
He gave me the sweetest greeting ever. When we opened the door the guys walked in first. Quickly stepped aside to let me in.What I saw almost made me cry. He was standing unassisted (His cane close by his side, just in case) with the biggest smile he could make,one arm outstretched.I got a BIG gentle bear hug. He's doing so well there.His nurse couldn't quit smiling either.

I'm glad I fought and won the fight to get him into a better place.

The staff are extremely proud of their efforts, as well they should be.
A lot of them remember when he first arrived.Some had looks of doubt that standing unassisted at the time was out. To yesterday's even if it was just for a minute.To see the progress he's made. You know they feel a sense of accomplishment.

We'll morning coffee break and wake up time is over.
Need to finish up my projects, do all the fine detailed clean up.
Then I'm off to see him and watch the game tonight.

Munky Badger.
