Sunday, October 23, 1994

We just watched Dale Earnhardt win the Nascar race today & he is the big points winner for the year - his 7th championship, tying Richard Petty.  He is Dale's favorite so you know our Dale is very happy.  He is doubly happy as Pittsburgh Steelers also won today, beating N.Y. Giants


Kim collects Charles Dickens Heritage Collection of houses, etc. so yesterday I got her Christmas gift.

Dale wants the Nascar year book of racing & they also have a book for the first Nascar race at Indy so I ordered that also so that just about takes care of his gifts.

Have you had any discussions concerning gifts suggestions for Paul, JoAnna, Andy & Eddie?  I hope so!

Since Dad doesn't get out it isn't possible for me to say "Let's go to the Mall.  I have to depend upon Barb & she isn't around days.

Last Fri. she cut herself on a soup can & it was bad.  Luckily Fri. is Bob's day off so he could take Barb to the emergency room.  They took 4 stitches & gave her a tetnus shot.

Gen & Ed celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary today.  I tried calling but no answer.  I sent flowers to them.  They weren't planning anything special - dinner out.

I'll enclose a letter from Lila as she tells about Genevieve.  Nice to have birthdays as then we hear from them.  The Round Robin got wounded somewhere along the line so unless we call we don't hear any news.

Lar & Kim gave us a cordless phone & it's right by Dad's chair so he can answer the phone easier.  He has a hard time getting up out of the chair.  Love to all.

Letter to Marion from Lila (October 13, 1994)

Happy birthday!  Hope you have a nice celebration.  We've been having beautiful autumn days.  Genevieve and I put up the storm windows on Tuesday.  Charles does quite a bit of substitute teaching in the Beloit schools, so he wasn't able to help us, as he was subing at the High School that day for the High School choir.  He really enjoys it.  He has also taught a Senior High English class.  He has subed in the grade, Jr. High & Sr. High schools, and also classes for slow learners.

We, Gen & I, went down to Rockford today to help Ruth.  Poor Ruth had an accident the other day.  She was pudding the dining room windows and as she got on the ladder it slipped and she fell and broke her wrist.  She will have to have her arm in a sling for 6 weeks.

Tomorrow I have my yearly checkup at the vacular lab.

On the 1st of September Gen had an appointment with her doctor in Madison.  Gen still feels that she does not want to have surgery on the brain and I feel the same way.  She takes Mylosin 3 times a day.  When she has a reaction, she stops what she is doing, just stands still and starts muttering (but does not fall or have a seizure) then she goes to the bathroom -- comes back to what she was doing.

When she saw the doctor Sept. 1, she told Genevieve of a program of "drug testing" that a Drug Co. does.  She is arranging for Genevieve to take a drug testing.  She has an appointment Dec 1.

I keep track of all her reactions.  After she left the Hospital Mar 10 - she had a reaction Mar 12, 15 & 17.  In April 3rd, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, & 19.  May 2, 3, 9, 15, 19, 29, 30, 31.  June 2, 8, 19, 20, 26, 29.  July 6, 10, 11, 14, 16, 18, `9, 22, 27.  August 10, 16, 27.  Sept 12, 16.  Oct 5, 7, 10, 13.

We continue to pray that the Lord will heal Genevieve of her affliction.

Our prays are with you, Carl, we pray the Lord will strengthen you each day and that new medicine will be found to heal you from your affliction.

When I sent Carl's birthday card I was in such a hurry I forget to enclose his check.  I guess he still didn't get the card on the 10th because no mail on Columbus Day.
