Day 333 - Apr 29, 2009

I got almost 8 hours of sleep last night - and Kevin only woke me up I think 3 times! He usually wakes me up at least 7 times through the night for one reason or another and I am just so tired and I am only even laying down for about 4 hours. Last night was like heaven to me!!

I think Kevin slept well too and I'm not surprised. He didn't sleep a wink the night before and it was one rough night and day.

Oh and before I forget - I know Kev is still on the thin side - but that is changing quickly. I have never seen his face so pudgy and he really is getting this little belly. I have never said anything to him, but he keeps bringing it up to me and he is upset about it. As for his weight - he is up to about 140 pounds.

I am just going to answer some questions tonight as nothing really happened today. We just did therapy and that's about it.

A couple of you have asked about my parents and they are doing well. Dad's rib seems to be healing, but it's a long process - especially when you are older. They do seem to love their apartment and I am so glad about that.

Petra - I would love it if you and everyone else that follows Kevin's progress could be at his ceremony. It would be so great to meet everyone! Jodi - how about it? Come's only the whole way across the country...

Michelle - thanks for the link about the soldier getting a new face through Operation Mend. That is actually the outfit we are hoping to get in to. I just hope they'll take us. Jodi - you actually sent me video of the same article.

Cathy M - I will have to remember to order The Central Park Jogger when I get back from Texas. Remind me, because I will probably forget. What you wrote does make me think that Kevin is just agreeing to things that are said because he doesn't want people to think he doesn't know something. He was always like that anyway, so it does make sense!

And now I am off to watch some tv. Kevin is already sleeping so I can just veg out and relax for a bit.

LOL...Okay then Kev, no more Cheesecake Factory, no more McDonalds...LOL

Les, if you only knew....I would LOVE to be with you guys in PA in July. Man, I would give anything to be able to do that...(sigh). I am TRYING to win the lottery :-)

Glad you both got some sleep last night! Glad to hear your dad is healing and they love the apartment.

Hi Breezy!!! Hope all is well in Texas!

Healing and positive thoughts for Kevin.
Strength and comfort for Les and Breezy.
Safe thoughts for all military personnel and strength for their families.

I've been reading your posts since almost the beginning. I've never commented till now but felt you should know the impact your daily accomplishments make in not just my life, but I'm certain in many others. Your strength and determination is so encouraging, I've cried, I've laughed and just wanted you to know how much you sharing your struggles and battles won, mean to me. As a single mom myself, I feel so proud of Kevin and Breezy for what you've been through and the wonderful young adults they have become! You alone have done this. You, and your family have blessed and enriched my life in so many ways through these posts. My continued prayers stay with you all. Congrats, and I hope you go into the upcoming "anniversary" with no sadness but of all the wonderful things that you have overcome this past year and know that you have impacted many many lives in such positive ways. God bless you all in all the years to come! :)
