We’re back from Montana — 8 Comments

  1. Hah! I knew there was a reason I liked you, Jackie…we both lived in Montana at one time or another (the wife and I lived on Canyon Ferry Lake near Helena from ’06 to ’10)! Man, I miss that state!


  2. Marilyn,

    Thanks for the support. Yes, Will is a special guy and I’m sure thankful to have him.

  3. Katherine Jordahl,

    Thanks for the information. We’ve been this route before with four handicapped children plus taking care of Mom and Dad in their last years. I think we’ve got a lead on an apartment with a good support system available. Now all the paperwork…. We’ll get it done.

  4. Jackie, it is wonderful that you and David could make the trip. I can’t imagine how thankful Javid was to have you both visit. Plus, the hope of moving back home must exciting for all of you. I believe that our children are one of the most precious gifts God has given us. I will continue to keep you all in prayer. Hoping that the transition goes well. Will is a jewel for his part in all this! Marilyn in SWMo

  5. Welcome home Jackie and David. Glad you had a good and safe trip!

  6. Re your son…I don’t know if your area has the 211 system (just dial that for referrals to a variety of helping agencies) but I’ve found that helpful for information. First Link also helps. Your county social service agency should have a list of approved homes, adult foster homes, etc. that provide a variety of services (self pay or otherwise) ranging from limited cares to more advanced. We used an adult foster care home for a family member once, it was like an apartment but had 24 hour supervision and meal assistance. good luck navigating the maze!

  7. So good to see that Javid will be able to live where he desires and be out of the nursing home.
    For the cold( this sounds daunting, but works!).
    One quart chicken broth
    One peeled onion, quartered
    One head garlic, peeled
    One teaspoon red pepper flakes
    One tablespoon curry powder
    One bunch cilantro
    One bunch parsley
    Bring all to boil, reduce to simmer, cook about a half hour until all veggies soft. Puree in blender…drink by the cup with the juice of one lemon. Inhale the fumes.

    Store in refrigerator when cool. . Get well soon
    ( got this recipe years ago from an article on soups that really work…this stimulates cells to fight infection and clears the cogestion)
