Day 281 - Mar 8, 2009

We had the most lazy day today and it was wonderful. Kevin didn't even get up until 1:00 this afternoon and then he ate breakfast and we talked for a little while and he went back to sleep until after 4:00 when I made him get up and go to the grocery store with me.

Once there, I had to laugh because I was looking at the vegetable section and next thing I knew - Kevin was gone! I actually had a moment of panic, but then I spied him halfway across the store. He was just looking at everything that is available. He continued on and I went my way and allowed him some independence. I must say his eyes lit up when he got to the beer aisle, lol. No go though - and he knows it!

In a nutshell, we really enjoyed our weekend. It's getting easier and easier to be away from the hospital for extended periods of time and I am confident that Kevin will do well when we go home for good.

That's great that Kevin wandered away on his own (never thought I'd say that!) and looked through the store. Pretty soon he'll be helping you make up the grocery list and you'll be the one following him around while HE shops.

Lazy weekends are great. :)

ROFL about the beer!! It's funny how that maternal instinct kicks right in though! Glad you've been having some good days lately, Les. You (all) needed them!! *HUGS*

Your post made me smile, to imagine Kevin on his own in the store, checking out the beer section! He's going to become more and more independent, I can see that. God bless him!

I'm glad you had a good weekend. I'm praying for you all and for Kevin's continued progress and good health!
