It has been a couple of days since we last made an entry, so we'll try to get caught up. We were able to finish up at the Mayo clinic on Friday, so we went to see our son and daughter-in-law, Grant and Lisa. It was one year ago this week that we came back here for their wedding. They are doing great, and we plan on helping them on their house for about the next 4-5 days. As far as the health issues with the boys, we were able to identify some areas in their health that we will need to follow up on. It appears that all three are dealing with different issues. with Myotonic dystrophy the biggest issue is respitory problems and heart issues in addition to other muscle issues. with Sam, we ill need to follow up with him in addressing a respitory problem he may have while sleeping. We did a sleep study on all 3 boys at the Mayo, but Sam's will require some followup. Hank appears to have a problem with his heart. His heart beats around 95 times per minute and evidently has an enlarged heart. We wil have to follow up with a cardiologist in Bako. Nate, on the other hand, has a heart that beats too slow. His heart rate is about 44 beats per minute. So Nate will also require follow up with a cardiologist. Heart issues are very common with this disease, and they both are dealing with it. Anyway, enough health stuff, now it is time to have some fun. We had a great day today, first we went to church, went to a museum and heard the Chicago Childrens choir in concert, then we played some softball, got rained on, hailed on, chilled and then went home to pizza. Next a couple of cali boys beat the chicago boys in their own game - bags as they call it, personally I like this name better than cornhole. Any way we whipped them at their own game. Well its late and we have work to do tomorrow. Have a great day
