Another fun thing that we did this week is take possession of the pinball machine given to him by the members of the workers at the Flat Rock Assembly plant in Michigan. It was the first one off the line of a limited edition 50th anniversary Mustang pinball machine that Ford had built in celebration of the Mustang’s 50 birthday. A pinball place in Birmingham had been storing it for us until we were more settled and hopefully in a new house. But, that is looking less and less like it will happen, so they and we were ready to go ahead and get it. We are going to leave it packed nicely for a little while just to make sure we aren’t going somewhere new. It was late when Vic got back, but Eli was excited to finally have possession of it and just put his shoes on with his PJs and went to see us unload it.

I am also so excited about something that I am going to prematurely announce it just so you will know why my posts are few and far between …. and because I am so excited! We are finally, finally moving forward with establishing a non-profit group. I had started to pursue it just before we learned that Eli had relapsed, then I had to drop it. So, I am prayerfully hopeful that, first, things with him continue to go well (for more than this reason), and secondly, that this effort grow and is productive and useful. The paperwork is in the works, and we will begin to
Eli will have chemo a little early next week, assuming that his numbers are good for it. The Huntsville nurses will be gone at the end of the week for some training, but it works out since it’s been a while from missing the mid-cyle. We are hopeful to make a local Mustang show tomorrow hosted by our fav Ford dealership, McClary Ford, and our fav local club, Limestone County Mustang Club of America, in Athens, but I think rain is on the way. Then the kids are dying to get pumpkins.
|Eli has a tooth bothering him. I'd like to pull it (hee, hee),|
but I'm afraid that with his platelets low, it might bleed a lot.
The adult tooth has grown in behind it as it did with the other one.
Please, remember Baylee, Grant, and Derrick. Also, I am mindful of Smilin’ Jack’s family. Those of you that have been around for a while will remember him. His family is in Japan and they are awaiting a direct hit of a powerful Typhoon.
