A lot of work this morning on the book. Ready to begin typing the edits for the devotional next week. Anticipating my appointment with the doctor tomorrow. Heard about what to wear for the visit. Happy I don’t have to be NPO. A little nervous but actually a little excited. Gotta be ready. No pain, no gain.

Long day, been up working and editing since 4.30 a.m. Finally completed the last 150 pages by 2 pm after church this morning. Sent the manuscript to Staples to be printed. Also I formulated a single-spaced copy for Jim and Debby when I see them in a few weeks. Getting better each time. Been talking to a fine friend in Bucyrus, Ohio (who would’ve thunk?). Keeping her updated on my progress. Also at church today, several ladies had talked to me about helping their friends or relatives with a TBI. Small world. Opportunities everywhere. As I say in the book, every nine seconds a brain injury occurs. Be careful.

Becoming fast friends with a nurse in the area. The sky is the limit: we’ll see, said the blind man. She is the definition of empathy, not apathy. The Queen of compassion. It’s too bad we’re just meeting now….good in a way, after all the other stuff previously.

Reconnected with a high school buddy this week. Sounded glad to have learned about my debut book. She ordered it from Amazon and she’s anticipating reading it. Van Buren Black Knights lol
