I'm back!

Sorry for the delay in posting. I took off for the lake on Friday. There is lots to do in preparation for the Steele's, Lipscomb's, and McGoldrick's arrival in June. I went early to meet the Direct TV installer, which was a no go b/c we have too many trees. I will be going back this Friday to meet the tree cutter and Direct TV man--once again. Josh and Michael arrived Friday night with the painters, bed, and refrigerator. They has some complications along the way...starting with Michael's slow start to the day. He isn't the timeliest person, but he will do anything for anyone! They had to pull over twice -- almost lost the matress and dolly on the interstate. This was all before they crossed the bridge!

It was quite an eventful weekend--many stories to last us a long time. Mom says the paint looks great. We have a few more updates to make this weekend--but the major stuff is done!

Dad is doing somewhat better we think. He wound up going on his golf trip. He told mom he would either be miserable in Memphis or miserable in Florida. He did get to play some golf. I think there is still some pain. He has 2 appointments tomorrow--1 is a Cat scan. Hopefully they will remove the stint this week. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.

My next Dr appointment is a week from today. We find out boy/girl on the 10th!!!

This is the second time I tried to send this comment, let's hope it works. You said that Mitch gave the recovery nurses a hard time. Once after many urolical and prostate surgeries, I asked the nurse, "where are my two things". She repied, "relax Mr. Steele, and quit being such a baby, we did not have to remove your testicles". "Testicles I replied, I was talking about my two slippers"!
Always with humor,
Grandpa Steele

Yea, dad asked the nurse--in a not so polite way -- to quit looking at his backside. He then proceeded to tell her that he was going to tell her husband that she was checking him out! Mom said it was hilarious.
Can't wait to see you guys!
