I’m sorry that I haven’t written in a few days. The internet at the hospital is sketchy (at best), but I have FINALLY found a way to get online. So, a lot has happened in the last few days. The biggest news is that Katy is out of the ICU, and out of the ACU. Katy is now on the rehab floor at Parkland. This is the last step before she gets to come home!! We moved up here today, and she will begin her 3 hours of daily therapy tomorrow. I have slept in her room the last two nights, and will be here again tonight. It is SO nice to be able to share the same room as my wife again…even if the accomodations make me feel like I just wrestled for a week straight! Katy is enjoying having me around, and I am actively helping with her PT/OT.
This coming weekend will have Amber and Jake coming to visit Katy for mother’s day. She is SOOOO happy to get to see them, and can’t wait to be home! She even got to talk to Arielle today on the phone. I know that she is ready to work very hard at her therapies so that she can get home soon.
I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone involved in last weekend’s QLS event. The event sounds like it was so amazing, and we are both blown away by everyone’s caring and generosity. I think it should be known that what means so much to us is not the amount of money and items that have been given for us, but why these things are being done. It reaffirms our faith in humanity that people will give so much to us in our time of need. The fact that a community is coming together makes our hearts swell. Though we will never be able to repay all of you for what you have done for us, know that we will gladly do anything we can should any of you fall into a time of need Thank you all.
For now, I have a ton of administrative work to do, but I will write more updates and let everyone know how Katy is doing. I hope you all have a great week!
Love to all,
