Power Failure Provides a Photo-Op

Just before I was planning to start Steve's dialysis today, we had a power failure. Several trees had gone down, bringing power lines with them. This has obvious meaning in a "dialysis home."

I was moving Steve back to his hospital bed, when it dawned on me that I couldn't lower the hospital bed - no power!

So, we resorted to the Hoyer, and moved him for the first time to one of our upholstered living room chairs. Sitting in a "real" chair, Steve seemed more like himself. I snapped a photo, below, as Steve chatted with Tim and me.

Welcome back, Steve. You're looking better every day.
