Being out of the medical world today was wonderful. We went exploring, this is a new city to us both and we found important things like the grocery store and drug store. We ran into Radio Shack and took a tour of different parts of this community.
My long time friend Annette and her friend Worth drove 3 hours to spend some time with us, Annette lives in the San Francisco area and happen to be spending a few days on the North Carolina Beach.. It was a very sweet visit. Annette and I have shared our lives for many years. We have been through great joys and also painful drama. She has known all of us for a long time. She has been at all of our major simchas and has walked with us through the ups and downs with Philip’s health. We laughed today and we cried. I enjoyed meeting her friend Worth. He is a kind southern gentleman and I enjoyed him very much. Annette and I don’t see each other often but we always remain in contact. I am blessed because she is my friend. She one time explained to me that each of her friends was like a very special flower. She expressed so beautifully how I feel about all of my close friends. Each one holds a special place in my heart. I am blessed with many wonderful friends.
Tomorrow we are back to the hospital for an echocardiogram. We will get the results October 26th when we return to UNC to meet with the pulmonolotist.
