"I should not talk so much about myself if there were any body else whom I knew as well."

Grandpa seemed more like himself today.  He's still really weak and is using a wheel chair. (Pam, I saw your comment about low B12 levels causing weakness & confusion, so I doubled checked his lab results... his levels are fine.)  
He was evaluated for occupational therapy & physical therapy today. On Monday he will be evaluated for speech therapy, which he may need to work on cognitive skills right now. He will be getting a total of 3 hours of therapy a day. When you consider meals, personal care, and 3 hours of therapy each day, he will stay quite busy throughout the week. 
He & Eleanor had their snuggle & bottle time today, something they've both missed this week. 
This afternoon we pulled Christmas decorations out of the attic. This part of Christmas continues to be a struggle for me, so we kept it simple this year. We also decided to keep the bottom third of the tree bare (except for lights) because we have a toddler who thinks it's all too beautiful to stay out of! She's in awe and that makes it worth the fuss.
