    I didn't make it to Hearthstone yesterday, but I did today. When I arrived, Marie was in her
    chair. Not much later, the Dynamic Duo...Batman and Robin [aka therapists Brenda and Julia]

    Today brought a discovery. Our oldest daughter, Joy, made a Shutterfly book for Marie, entitled
    "THE MAHNKE'S!" Inside it are photos of both Marie and I, all four of our girls, our

    This "new normal" sucks. This morning, I spent some time reviewing the checkbook. I am amazed
    that, since I took it over almost a month ago, everything...I repeat...EVERYTHING balances!
    Now, prior to ...

    Well, at my meeting today, Hearthstone will continue to do what they are doing...giving Marie
    all the therapy she can tolerate in her condition. Julia, one of the physical therapists, said
    that while ...

    her said she used numerous words this morning. She was semi-alert for part of my visit this
    afternoon. The...

    When I arrived at Hearthstone today...100am-ish...Marie was already sitting in her chair, and
    was alert. I asked her if she missed me yesterday. She shook her head "Yes." I explained to her
    that I did...

    Before I left for church this morning [played two services at Calvary Lutheran LCMS in Elgin]
    the bike battery was fully charged. When I got home from church, I installed it and the bike
    started up li...

    I visited Marie for a couple of hours this morning. She was reasonably alert early on...but
    began to fade as I stayed. Both the nurse [meds] and the physical therapist [moving limbs
    either with or wit...

    Every time I come to HBT, I am overwhelmed. The support you brewers have shown me is beyond
    comprehension. I am blown away by your shared grief.Today, Marie was again in her chair, and
    the therapist w...

    Visited with Marie...and #2 daughter Liesl...today. Using a lift, Marie was taken out of the
