First let me say - WE GOT ACCEPTED!! Now we are waiting for the news on when the flight will be. I am told it will be anywhere from 24 hours up through 10 days!
Kevin does seem to be more aware lately. We had a long 'talk' about what it will be like in Florida and although he doesn't exactly respond, he does seem to listen. I think this is going to be good for him. He needs the stimulation and the activity.
We had planned to go to the gym today and play on the Wii, but when we got there Daniel came in. (Daniel was with Kevin at the time of the attack). It was a very hard moment for all of us - it was the first time they saw each other. I am pretty positive that Kevin was crying because his eyes got bloodshot and he had tears. Daniel was upset too, but he handled himself really well. I liked how he still talked to Kevin even though it hurt him deeply to see what Kevin has become. There were definitely tears all around during the exchange.
So after this, we decided to go outside rather than play the Wii. Daniel needed to do his PT and we didn't want him distracted by Kevin. We went outside for at least an hour and truthfully, Kevin slept the whole time. I was told that he only slept an hour the night before - he had a really rough night. I have to wonder if it's because we didn't go see him. We did end up going to the concert. I know...I shouldn't think like this but it could just be. It has to be hard to just lay there for hours with no one to 'talk' to. And for some reason, visiting hours ended at 4 instead of 6pm yesterday so it was even longer than it would have been.
But we did go to the concert and it was a good time. I have to be honest - I really love Texas - but they do not party like Pittsburgh does! I can't say I have ever seen Petty only do one encore - basically cause the burgh keeps chanting - but he didn't play even an hour and a half. And hardly anyone was dancing - very different, for sure!
But, we had great seats! See...
I did have to zoom in to get this, but only 5x. Click on it for a larger image.
So anyway, that's about it for tonight. Maybe tomorrow we will have a firm date for flight. I know that I fly with Kevin on the Med flight, but Breezy goes commercial. Tonight I need to start cleaning things up and figuring what I can leave here and what I need to take with us. I can't wait to see what this next chapter brings us...and I can't wait to cook a real meal. Or even bake cookies...raspberry choc chip with pecans...oh my...
First 2 from the Nov kit!
