Sorry for the delay in blogging…again. It seems I say that more than I care to. There was a press conference this morning to announce that Katy is not listed with the New England Organ Donor system! Now, we wait for a suitable donor.
We both would like to, again, thank everyone for their continued prayers, support, and love! This is still a trying time, but I am SO happy that Katy is actively a part, and in control of, this process. The doctors at Brigham Women’s Hospital are a wonderfully talented team, and without their research, surgical skills, and dedication, none of this would be possible. Yay, doctors! (Not often you hear ME say that!) Also, I am so proud of Katy! She has been working out, and truly doing everything she can to prepare her body for the surgeries. She even sat up, with a therapist pushing on her legs, and has scooted up to 170 feet! She has such an amazing spirit, and is still my hero!
We are in the Boston area while we wait. Boston is a beautiful city, with lots of fun, free things to do, but is also expensive to live in. It is compounded by the fact that we don’t know how long we will be here. You can imagine going to a property and asking for a place to live for 4 non residents, with a wheelchair, for an undetermined amount of time. I never thought about how people in these situations do this, but we are making it. We have done our best to adjust to living in 250 square feet. We are on top of each other a lot, but lots of walks and bike rides make the time pass more quickly. The people we have met are very friendly, and the weather has been gorgeous. I’m sure that we will get our payback from missing the Texas heat when we get our first blast of Winter! Brrrrrrr!
I will write more as more interesting things happen. I hope that everyone reading this is doing well, is healthy, and remembers to VOTE!! (Had to throw in a psa:-) )
