Update time again. See how dependable I am?

To start with and just to warn y'all, Becky won't be on for a week at all. She's gone to her great grandmother's again to help out since Nana is not supposed to be alone, day or night. They're looking for an assisted living place for her, which is just going to break her heart since she'll have to sell the house she's had for many years. It's really sad. I hate to see it, but she falls all the time and can't get by on her own. Hopefully they'll find her a place in the next week or find someone else to stay with her because Becky will not be able to due to school starting for her. This could be that final straw for Nana, which makes me sad. She's a great lady and I hate to see her having such troubles.

On the Mikel front, well, he's Mikel. Apparently, before I got there he decided that he was going to get up and walk, doctor's orders be damned. He's going a bit stir crazy being stuck in bed all the time. It doesn't help that he's naturally hyper, er, energetic. He did manage a few steps before they stopped him, which prevented him from falling since he was not very steady on his feet and he was pretty short of breath. I expect many more incidents like this from now on. I'm sure that the nurses, doctors, orderlies, etc. are so looking forward to it. But there's no way in hell he's going to tolerate being strapped down, so they don't have that option. He can be very convincing about some things. I'm just hoping he doesn't push too hard and screw things up enough that he'll be stuck there longer than he would otherwise.

He did talk to the doctor about being out of there before Monday. Apparently, the doctor started to laugh until he saw that Mikel was serious. He strongly recommended against it, but I guess it's kind of like hitting your head against that proverbial brick wall. When he talked to Mikel's dad (his mom is now back home doing the court thing so there was no big scene. This time), he told him that if there was some way he, or someone, could talk Mikel out of this goal, it would be best. That was apparently Isaac's turn to laugh. I think the doctor got the point with that. He then gave recommmendations for what Mikel's supposed to do, eat, etc. when he's out. We'll see how far that goes.

So hopefully Mikel will do more recovering in the next week than is apparent from his current progress. It will be so much easier then. However, if not, I'm going to do my damndest to make sure that he does what he's supposed to do, even if I have to resort to nefarious and devious things. It's definitely going to be interesting, I'll say that. At least I have big strong men here to help me if he decides to get determined to walk around too much. I'm sure they'll be happy to do it. I'm also sure that Mike is glad he's not here a good part of the day due to school, now that I've said that. Hmm. Come to think of it, most of the guys won't be here for a few hours during the day. I hope Bait's up to this. At least Mikel won't be at full strength? Poor Bait. Maybe I can convince Cult to help. He could probably manage it better. He does like Mikel, after all.

Life with Mikel. Always an adventure.
