Marlon and I went off to the hospital this morning. Louise is visiting with one of her sons and his family so I drove us down. While Marlon and I like the connection with Louise, it is also nice to go ourselves. After waiting quite a while we were told his blood counts are good and we were free to go. We drove into Guelph where I got him lunch (poutine of course) and we bought nose plugs. We also had a visit with the puppies though at that time Marlon was playing Minecraft on the phone with friends. A little more awkward on the phone rather than computer but anything to play with friends.
In the evening, he went for a swim but didn't try the nose plugs yet as we need to attach string to them otherwise if they fall off they may get lost. I tried them on and they were way more uncomfortable than I remember nose plugs being (I did some synchronized swimming a long, long time ago) but hopefully they will work for him.
Last week, I shared the bottom picture, commenting on the appearance of the water. A lot can change in a week. The top picture is today's same view.
