It was such a sunny day that we took the time to have lunch at one of my favourite spots in Simcoe, that Irv hasn't had the chance to try yet.
I had great soup and and the belly buster egg salad sandwich and Irv had an all day breakfast. We had a really excellent meal and we were able to sit in the sunlight and thoroughly enjoyed our view of downtown Simcoe.
Irv is now doing more walking with the assistance of his walker and just needs the wheelchair for long distances. He is so eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring and having no snow so will give him a chance to go short distances and build up his endurance once more. The walker is essential for his balance as the stroke seems to have thrown his normal balance out the window. But he says it is way nicer to have the walker than the wheelchair. He also feels bad that I have to push the wheelchair and lift it in and out of the car. But I really don't mind at all. The walker is lighter to lift in and out of the car but it doesn't fold down as nice as the wheelchair. Of course the real challenge is when we need the walker and the wheelchair for options, there is no room for anyone else in the car except the two of us. The benefit is that I can't buy many groceries or fit much shopping in the car, but you'd be amazed how much crafting supplies I can make fit.
Let's hope more of the snow will disappear and give him the chance to walk around downtown Simcoe or Port Dover for our next lunch date.
