    He got a modified multi-visceral....basically stomach, pancreas and small intestine all at once

    Too bad about the hardwood floor. The quilts will be fun. Will your husband make one of them?

    You might consider getting the bedding for long twins now because all the dorm length is on sale now for "back to school".

    I've told my husband for the last couple of years that it would be nice to have 2 beds, although my dream is to have 2 doubles instead of twins. Gotta have a larger room, though. He thinks I'm joking.

    Laminate flooring is wonderful but it is a lot of work to put down. We had it in our cottage (destroyed by Sandy) and I wish we could have it again in our new home. As for the beds, we had twins put together for years because we couldn't fit anything larger in the door. It was a terrific arrangement for living with a man with restless leg syndrome. I would just shove his bed over a little bit and go back to sleep. Now, in the apartment we have until we rebuild, we have a new comfy king sized bed. At first I thought it was too big, but now ... with two dogs ... I'm thinking its too small! Enjoy your new arrangement!

    We have two long twins put together side by side to make a Cal King. The mattresses are that shock absorbing foam like temperpedic sp? This helps absorb the restless leg syndrome and shaking from DH and my tossing and turning so we can both get some sleep.

    The quilts sound like fun and the new flooring beautiful. Enjoy!

    How about 2 quilts, same fabric, different patterns. I have twins in my spare bedroom and that's what I did...love it! (So does everyone that visits and sleeps in there)

    I see you husband is an organ recipient, mine also. My DH celebrated his fifth birthday with his new heart on July 3. Congrats to you and your husband, him for the amazing gift and you for surviving as caregiver.

    Congratulations to the two of you too. It's amazing to be living in this age with so much possible.
    Please become an organ donor
    It really does save lives, my husband is living proof.
