Sunday Photos, 10/22/23

Ralph’s accident at the end of July that resulted in a TBI has taken up a lot of my time lately. I haven’t been able to keep up with other things as thoroughly as I would like. I finally have him seeing a neurologist with the VA in Palo Alto. His CT scans from Sierra Vista are up here now, he had new ones taken on Thursday and Friday, and he is scheduled for a return to the neurology clinic on 11/2. The brain bleed is worse than I was led to believe back in August, but I got him into the VA system for this injury as fast as I could. Because he can’t drive, and I can’t/won’t drive his motorhome, we are now staying in motels and/or hotels for the time being while all of this is sorted out. One of the hotels we have stayed in provides a degree of serenity in the midst of the chaos of the city — a connection with nature I crave. It even has redwood trees. I truly appreciate it at times like this. Bear with me as I navigate this new territory and take you along with me.

  5. Sending blessings full of healing and love! May you both have everything you don’t even know you need!

  6. Loyalty to friends is immeasurable blessings on you and him. I’m assuming someone has stepped up to care for your four leggeds. I would help if I could

  7. Sending a WhiteLight prayer for both of you. Bleeding in the brain sounds extremely dangerous!

  8. What a nice place to stay! Great for dogs and people…. Hope Ralph’s recovery goes well.

  9. Why does he not put a request in for local Community Care so he can be seen by a Neurologist in Monterey?

  10. Oh my, how stressful, Kate! I’ll add you both to my Reiki “chain” and send it to you every night when I get into bed. Please just take care of each other right now. 🤗🙏

  11. Thinking of you both Kate during recovery. Thank you for this blog and all that you do for the community. All the best.

  12. Please give Ralph a hug for me. He may not remember me, but I remember him often and fondly. I got to know him when he was working for my kids’ dad for a while. Great guy. Thank you for all that you do, taking care of those around you, with no regard to how distantly “around” is measured.

  13. See if the VA will help with transportation.
    Check on more benefits. You both earned them. ❤️🙏

  14. Dear Kate, yes you are just the best with monitoring, researching and caring for Ralph during his recovery. Love the photos of where you are staying and totally understand your desire for the peace that your home offers you and your pups. Reminder to take care of yourself as best you can while being the love bug you are with others. Hugs.

  15. I can’t get to Monterey any easier than Palo Alto right now and my experience with the community care docs in Monterey is not good.
