Oh what a great day. We just lay around all morning and then we got ready and drove to an event at the Sun Dome. They were honoring America's Heroes. I didn't know what to expect, but it was just a bunch of tables set up to help with addiction and suicide and things like that. It really wasn't Kevin's thing (nor mine) so he wanted to leave within 10 minutes and he got no argument from me.
After that we just came home and watched movies/tv. Kevin also talked on the phone quite often. Which reminds me - some of you have asked if Kevin can talk and the answer is sort of. He can say about 30 words or so, with more coming all the time. Two that he can say are yes and no and it's best if you keep to those kinds of questions. One thing I am unsure of is if he will remember everyone and I guess we'll just have to see. Mostly he needs pictures, but he has come a long way in the last few weeks and doesn't seem to need as much visual prompting.
Also, I want to thank everyone for sending me possible plastic surgeons. I guess I have my work cut out for me in researching who's the best. I know I need to get moving on this so hopefully I will get some time this week.
And I just want to end by saying that us staying at my parent's apartment has made a world of difference to Kevin. It is amazing how many things have 'come back' to him and I rarely see bouts of sadness anymore. I can't wait to take him home and see what kind of difference that makes. Just him being able to get around by himself and cook and shower without it being such a tight area will be amazing. I just can't wait to see how much he loves it there.
And now I am going to end with some pics of Kev on the phone and listening to his iPod.
First 2 from the Nov kit!
