Day 208 - Dec 25, 2008

I hope everyone had a great Christmas day! We did. We didn't really do much - which is always a good thing. The neurosurgeon actually came very early this morning so he was tapped before Breezy even got there. In one way that was great as he was raring to go early in the day. In another way that was bad because by the time dinner was ready, he was already lethargic and wouldn't even eat. He just slept at the table while we dined :-(

But we did really have a good day. We just lay around and watched movies and stuff. Kevin did at least eat leftover turkey for lunch and he ate a whole lot of it. He pretty much wiped us out of leftovers - even eating my portion, lol.

After he went to bed, Breezy, Anthony and I went to see a movie. I couldn't believe how packed the movies were here. I guess I am just used to small towns, lol.

And I guess tomorrow is a holiday so we get a whole long weekend of no therapies - yay! I am hoping to get Kevin into the van tomorrow and we can take a little spin. I guess we'll see...

Leslie,

That's wonderful that you were able to spend Christmas with Kevin..and that he had a good day..

If he ate that much turkey no wonder he slept..Turkey will do that to you, the more you eat the sleeper you get..LOL

Have a wonderful weekend..

Merry Christmas to all of you. Glad that you had a good day even if he was wiped out by the end of the evening. Hope this weekend off is fun and that you get to go out and about in the van. You all deserve a few days (and many more) of rest and fun!

Thinking good thoughts about the upcoming surgery and the New Year, sending them your way!

OoooRAH for Kevin.
So glad to hear that he polished off the left overs.{btw--saves all those calories from landing on YOUR hips}.

Like Brenda said 'that much turkey and you will sleep'. I had a good helping and all I wanted to do was become a Boa Constrictor and digest that bird.{snooze, snooze,saw-en that log}

Hope the surgens get to Kevin early so he can be rar'in to tour the city in the m-van. Maybe he will be able to see the Christmas lights around town. May help to bring back more memories.

Take care and have a GREAT week-end.
