I want to start off by saying “thanks” to all of you who were able to show up to Katy’s party, and to those who were there in spirit! Katy was surprised, and her tears during dinner were, as she put it, because “I am so grateful!” She is the strongest person I have ever met, and she continues to amaze me through this whole process.
We did a have a VERY scary event occur on the way to the party. While slowing to stop at a red light, Katy propelled forward and landed on her face in the van! Apparently, her seatbelt had been taut, but partly trapped under her wheels. When the weight shifted, she came loose and fell forward. I was HORRIFIED! I pulled over, and got her in the chair again. She was scared, but pulled through. I thought I was going to have a heart attack, I was so scared.
The event for July 10th continues to grow. The efforts of those working on the event are unbelievable! If you, or anyone you know, is interested in attending, please contact us at www.katyhayesfund.com ASAP. The event will be worth double the price of admission even if you don’t know Katy. The auction items are spectacular, and all of the funds go straight to helping Katy with her goals, and, hopefully, allow us to buy a house that can be modified specifically for her needs.. I can’t wait to see all of you there!
This week is full of more of the same for us. Katy is getting better every day, but still has a long way to go. The learning curve for the body powered prosthetics will be difficult, but I know that Katy will master it soon enough. I know her spirits will lift even higher when she can start to do things for herself again, and she is looking forward to some more independence.
On the music front, my song “Wednesday Afternoon” is now on Napster, E-Music, and Amazon. I am also working on new material for release soon. I hope to have the entire album out by the end of the year. Our gig on Friday went very well, but we did miss Katy! We have another gig this Friday at Castaway’s Bar in Surfside, TX, and then I will be back in my studio (home studio) continuing to work. I can’t wait to have Katy next to me on stage again!
I promise to write more soon. Thanks for your patience with me lately!
Love to all,
