“Trevor (Kathy’s husband) saved my life,” Layton whispered in his weak airy “little old man” voice.
“What! How did he do that?”
“He brought me a ginger ale. And I was so thirsty and my blood sugar was low. It was sooooo good. I wouldn’t have made it without the ginger ale!”
Trevor and Katherine are in the process of becoming master renovators. As Kathy puts it, when they met, all Trevor had was a drill. Now they have all kinds of tools and Trevor knows how to use them! This proved to be helpful this week. The toilet in the main bathroom finally died after about thirty years of reliable service. Trevor and Kathy have done all kinds of research on makes, models, features and benefits so when we paraded into Home Depot at 7:00 am, we knew what we were buying. Carson had no idea what he would be learning. So, in spite of coming home at 2:30 am, Trevor convinced Carson to get up and install a toilet while he supervised. Carson did a great job and now that he knows this, he is going to assume Trevor’s role and get Liam to install the next toilet, and then Liam is going to have to find a friend and teach him to install the final toilet! I guess we really learn it when we teach it.
We continue to get casseroles, muffins and food for Layton (thank you, Marilynne!). It is greatly appreciated as so much of the day is spent at the hospital!
So, this is a rather rambly post to the blog-but Trevor has never saved anyone’s life before and he really liked the sound of the title so here it is! It was great to have them visit over Canada Day. Tomorrow Dennis and Tina from Grande Prairie arrive so that will be great for Layton to see his buddy!
