Day 337 - May 3, 2009

It's just so nice to be back in San Antonio. It's like a whole different world here. Maybe it's because it's a military base, maybe it's because it's just such a wounded soldier oriented community, who knows. I just know that I missed it.

BUT - it is way hotter here than I remembered. Dang! It's going to over 90 degrees here every day for the next two weeks.

So anyway, we did go and visit some of the staff today and they just couldn't believe what they were seeing. We had a decent lunch at the hospital and then we got a different wheelchair. We were supposed to bring Kevin's, but it wouldn't fit on the plane, so we have a hospital loaner. Yesterday they gave me one for a 'larger' person and I could barely lift it to get it into the car we rented. Thankfully we were able to get a slightly smaller one today and hopefully tomorrow we can get an even smaller one.

And for most of the day, we were mostly just lazy and vegged out. We even took a nap - even after both of us sleeping 12 hours last night. We did go to dinner and then we came back and Kevin walked almost a 1/2 a mile. I was really surprised that he walked so far and he was just so proud of himself. Must've been all that rest, huh?

Now we need to get some more rest because tomorrow promises to be a busy day. We have many doctors and surgeons to see...

SOOOOO glad that you guys finally made it! Man my skin was crawling just thinking about the Clarion - good grief Batman! I'm sure that you will continue to amaze and awe everyone you run into down there - just judging from the awesome pics that you have been posting lately, the change is nothing short of incredible. An incredible miracle!

Hope that all has gone well for you all (or y'all?? :-)) today, meeting with the surgeons and getting logistics ironed out.

Know that as ALWAYS we're out here praying for you guys every step of the way, you can bet your bottom dollar on that! God bless you Leslie, Kevin & Breezy, thoughts, prayers support and loads and loads of extra special Angel Hugs are always on their way to you all.

I am so happy for all of you!! This is such great news, with things beginning to fall into place for you. It is a deserved happening, to be sure. I am certain everyone there is going to be so stunned at Kevin's progress, but we have been privy to your faith and strength each day, so are well aware of all that has transpired. May your stay there be everything you need and want it to be. And may God continue to bless you. Love. Hugs. prayers. Always.
