Need for moving help Sunday, 8 months in hospital

Business first:
We need some help moving Denise's caregiver from her current place into our place tomorrow (Sunday). Sorry for this late plea... the caregiver just now found out that her moving help is not available after all. All her stuff's in one room, so there's not much. But if we could get an extra set or two of hands tomorrow to help quickly load things up in Pasadena around 2pm and another few sets of hands to unload a few miles away in Duarte later in the afternoon, that'd be a tremendous relief for all of us. Please contact me ASAP if you can help (:: data remove 20050320 00:01:PST ::).

Today marks eight months since Deinise went into the hospital. Two thirds of a year. Over one third of Jacob's life. To "celebrate" (because griping about it doesn't do any good, right?), we were allowed a three hour pass this afternoon. She wanted to go to Mimi's Cafe, where she ate well and held things down. We also went home to relax (someone else had the kids, so it was nice & calm). Denise likewise was nice & calm, and did not exhibit any compulsive behavior today. She was asking how bad things are for her, so that was a little tough to talk about some of the negative possibilities. The waiting game doesn't help much, either. Other than that, she had a great time and was happy to get out for a while. While we were at home, one of my teacher friends that's been organizing meals for our family came by to drop off food (Dream Dinners... they're incredible if you're in a pinch for time and I recommend them strongly, by the way). She said that Denise was looking good (she had her black & red wig on). It's always good to hear other people say how well Denise is!
