Day 373 - Jun 8, 2009

We had a pretty good day today. We had OT and PT and then we went and visited everyone back on the ward. It was so wonderful to see Joel and Maritza and everyone. We really missed them.

And my friend Tracy pretty much planned the Purple Heart ceremony today. Thank goodness! She made a ton of phone calls, found out that there definitely isn't any type of protocol and just put together a schedule. LOVE IT! It's promising to be a very nice event and we are both looking forward to it.

And now I am off to bed. I am going to leave you guys with a couple of photos of Kevin eating brownie batter last night. I actually had him mix a batch up (with a little help) and I caught him sneaking a few spoonfuls. I still can't find my battery charger so these were taken with my phone:

Yay Tracy! What a great help to have the ceremony planned out.

Good to read getting back into 'routine' is going well. Keep truckin', Kevin!

Hehehe, love the photos. They're making *me* want to make some brownies now...

It's wonderful to hear that the Purple Heart ceremony is coming together so nicely. I wish I could make it out, but cross-country travel is a little pricey right now. I'll have my flag flying and a smile on my face, though!

Kevin, keep up the hard work, buddy. And eat all the batter you want - god knows you've earned it.

Good thoughts coming your way from SoCal!

Way to go Tracy!! Lesley, the relief in your "voice" is audible! Tracy, that is so wonderful for you to step forward and as my students always say...'git er done'...I am sure there are others who will be on board to help, as well.

Love the pictures.

Love. hugs and prayers. always.

And a big HOORAY for Tracy! I cannot blame Kev one bit for sneaking the brownie batter... is there anything better so sneak?! YUM!!!

God bless you Leslie, Kevin & Breezy. Thoughts, prayers, support and loads of extra special Angel Hugs are always coming your way!

Great news Leslie! Were Kevin's therapists surprised at his progress since he was there last?
