Nothing about this week has been particularly satisfying until today. In fact, it's been nothing but ups and downs all week long with MLTL, with yesterday being particularly down. We considered bringing him home and starting hospice, but then he got a good night's sleep, IV potassium & sodium and things were better today. I think, for him at least, only time will tell, buy today things appear wee bit better. Hopefully he'll get a little better with time.
Since he was improving today, I sent his son up to check on him and I stayed to watch what turned out to be the most amazing day of Le Tour de France. My favorite to win since the start, Aussie, Cadel Evans, who was losing by about a minute going into this stage, won the day by pulling ahead of the leader and takes the entire race. It was an incredible time trial and I'm more than satisfied with the outcome. Something tells me he'll be quite the hero back home,because to my knowledge, it's the first time an Australian has won the tour. For Cadel, this day has been many years in the making and he truly deserved this win.
There is no race for the yellow jersey on Sunday--that's for show only, and was decided today--but there will be the crazy sprinters going all out at the end of stage 21. While I kind of let the competition wool spinning peter out, I do have 99.99999% of that peacock shawl done. I'm hoping, like a sprinter, to finish it up by the end of tomorrow.
On a more somber note, I'm truly saddened by the news out of Norway. What a horrible event for the people of that nation and the parents who lost their children. This world can be heartbreaking at times.
