Well, a lot has happened since my last post. Katy and I found, with the generous help of several people, an apartment! We moved in this week, and are enjoying a Sunday doing “normal” things like laundry. We have NOT received “the call” yet,but will continue to wait for the best donor to be found. Katy has been working out her shoulders and core, and she goes to PT every 2 weeks.
Last weekend was bittersweet for our family. Katy’s Uncle George passed away at the age of 89. He was a wonderful man, and was loved by all who knew him. RIP, Uncle George.
We surprised the family by driving to Michigan for the funeral. Katy got to see some of her family she hasn’t seen in years, and I know it meant a lot to Katy, and her family, that she was there. The trip was a whirlwind tour of driving all night to get there, funeral, and then right back on the road so that we weren’t away from Boston for very long.
The kids are in Michigan for a while, staying with family, so that they can have a regular schedule. We miss them terribly, but know that Jake going to school, and Arielle having a regular schedule is what is best for them right now. Thankfully, they love their Aunt and Uncle, and Jake texts me every day to tell me about school. We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful family!
Katy has her first speaking engagement this coming week. It will be a small, private group of people who are wanting to hear Katy tell her story, and welcome us to the Boston area. We are being asked to give another couple of talks to medical staff in the near future, and hope that this will be a wonderful opportunity for Katy to say some things she has wanted to for a while. Wish us luck!
I hope that this post finds all of you well, and that you have a WONDERFUL week ahead. More to come soon.
