08:29 – Barbara’s dad is doing better than expected. Barbara and her sister are taking shifts so one of them is there with him at all times. It’s not that Dutch needs help constantly. The problem is that he’s still too weak to get up from his reclining chair or the toilet, so someone needs to be there to help him on a moment’s notice. When I talked to Barbara last night, she said he was improving fast, so we’re hoping he’ll soon no longer need 24-hour coverage.
I’m putting together a small batch of forensic science kits today. Our current stock status on those is minus one.
