|A bird? A plane? No, it's coffee!|
|Gene all engrossed in his tablet, my iPad Air and John's iPad Mini|
John learned how to use FaceTime yesterday, and I have already received three phone calls from him. He's delighted that he can call and video chat with me. This morning he called to introduce me to his cat. John is a dear man, and I'm happy to help him out, now that I actually CAN. He is going to have both of his knees replaced this coming Monday, and I will be looking forward to a lot of calls from him.
I'm just a bit worried about him, though. This is a major thing he's doing, and I don't think realizes just how major. He will be transferred directly from the hospital to a nursing home until he's back on his new knees. My fingers are crossed for all to go well. Tomorrow I will get him a few more apps that will help to keep him occupied during his convalescence.
oh, i do hope your friend does well with his surgery and recovery! love that he's into video chats and all. :)ReplyDelete
You're a dear friend, DJan. I will keep John in my best thoughts. I know that while he's on the road to recovery, he'll enjoy your virtual company.ReplyDelete
Gee, 2 knees at once. That sounds dangerous to me. Good luck and best wishes to him.ReplyDelete
Both knees at once??!! Who does that?ReplyDelete
ah i hope everything goes well for john..that is pretty major stuff...it is good that he has a way to communicate with others too as he will need that support....ReplyDelete
That most definitely was a bird on your coffee.ReplyDelete
You are such a wonderful friend. Lots and lots of good wishes for John. I hope he recovers quickly and completely.
My dad had both knees replaced. He liked to get out the 'after' x-rays and show people his titanium knees!ReplyDelete
I hope everything goes well for your buddy. You could also help me with my ipad mini. I'm not an Apple person. Our library provides computer assistance to seniors.ReplyDelete
You are a good friend, DJan. It's good that John will be able to communicate with you while he recovers.ReplyDelete
I'm so glad you could help your friend, DJan. You're wonderful! I was drooling over your iPad air, buuuut Art decided we needed the Macbook Air instead. Well... next Christmas I'll be angling for my turn.ReplyDelete
Both knees at once uffda! You are a gem to help him out with his IPad, I think it is great that you share your knowledge !ReplyDelete
John has guts. But, you know, it's possible that he's been in such pain for such a long time that the recovery will be not as awful as it might be for somebody who didn't know that pain. I'm sure your visits will help him.ReplyDelete
I'm glad he can get the care in the nursing home and can have the surgery to begin with. I expect it will be life-changing for him.
Wow, both knees done at the same time is very difficult indeed. My friend had two separate operations - John must be very brave indeed, however, he will be take well care of and in a good place where they will cater to his needs and insure that he heals well and has proper exercise to get those knees working well. I remember when my brother invested in his ipad mini and discovered facetime - he called me every morning and sometimes 3-4 times a day till the novelty wore off a little. You will be a good dose of medicine for John during his recovery and be able to tell him all about your hikes, etc for you are a busy bee DJan. Have a wonderful day.ReplyDelete
My brother did both knees at the same time, and he got along fine!ReplyDelete
I'm glad he joined the apple family! I'm sure he'll recover and be just fine.ReplyDelete
Thanks to you, he will have a way to stay entertained while he is in rehab.ReplyDelete
Hoping for smooth surgery and a quick recovery. Who will be taking care of his cat?
You two, I know, will have many times of laughter with your chats while he's recuperating.ReplyDelete
DJ...I'm here today to send along my wishes for you and your loved ones to enjoy the season tidings. Live, love, laughter!!!
BOTH KNEES!?!?!? At the same time. Wow. He's one tough guy. Sending good vibes and prayers his way for a speedy recovery.ReplyDelete
And it looks like your friend could moonlight as Santa Claus!
Never heard of both knees at once ... but what do I know? I just ice mine. Meantime, I'm thinking of making a trip out to your coffee shop to get some advice on how to use my Samsung!ReplyDelete
He is fortunate to have a friend who can help with some techno advice. No doubt he will be an expert by the time he is back on both legs again. Maybe you can introduce him to blogging so he can write his own blog about the experience of having both knees done at once!ReplyDelete
I hope the surgery goes well and the recovery, too. My dad had a hip replaced at 90 and it went well, but takes a while to recover. He's so glad he had it done, though. (94 now.) You are such a good friend!!! :)ReplyDelete
