Day 895 - Nov 10, 2010

Kevin had physical and speech therapies today. It was the first time he had speech at the same place where he goes to OT and PT at and I really liked how this therapist worked with him. She spent more than an hour asking him all types of questions and he did fantastic!

I spent quite a bit of time making phone calls this morning to get information on what can be done on this elevator/apartment situation. Between the ADA, the PVA, the Fair Housing Act and many others, I am thinking it might just be best to call the investigative news channel here in SA and see if they can do anything. All of the other options are going to take weeks (if not months) to see any results and I also worry about an emergency and needing to evacuate Kevin and the elevator being down.

So after therapy, we ran my parents over to Breezy's and her and Chris took them out for dinner. Johnny met us there and picked up Kevin and the two of them went off looking for trouble and I was all by myself for hours. I drove around for a while, picked up some candy flavorings as my daughter is craving Hard Tack Candy and then I went home and did nothing. I really wanted to go out and do something, but have no idea what to do. It was dark by the time I got near home so going to a park was out of the question. Oh well...I did get to talk to Moe today and it's been a LONG time since I did that so that was great!

And that's pretty much it for today.

Hi Kevin, Leslie, Breezy and Family - I wanted to send a few words to let you know that on this day you and all of our Veterans are in my thoughts and my prayers in a very special way.

Without you all, this great country could never, would never be. To say "Thank You" just seems so inadequate considering you've all made the way of life we know even possible.

And to you Leslie, Breezy, your entire family and all of the military families out there - THANK YOU to you too. The families of our heroes are, in fact, the backbone of this country.

God bless you all and Thank You once again.

Happy Veterans Day to Kevin!

I love this day. I have pilots, sailors, devil dogs, and soldiers whom I remember fondly on this day. In nearby Green Valley the main street is lined on both sides with American flags. I drive down just to see them. My heart is full and thankful on this day.

And, I love, love, love the video you posted. It gave me goose-bumps. Did you know that just before the Patriot Guard Riders leave on a mission we form a circle, hold hands, and sing that very song? I often remember the words of the woman who encouraged me to join the PGR -- "They may look scary to you, but go. Just go. They are the nicest people you'll ever meet."

There is a campaign all day here for donations to Fisher House. Is that happening everywhere? I sure hope so.

Free time you don't know what to do with? May you have much, much more of it!!

Thank you Kevin. You have sacrificed so much. I will be forever grateful. Thank you too Leslie for what you have sacrificed for your son. It doesn't go unnoticed.

Lisa - you can check this out on Facebook. The DVD is available thru National Geographic. It isn't gruesome, it's mostly about their emotional lives together.......Note he's 173rd Airborne!

"On November 16, 2010, Staff Sergeant Sal Giunta of the 173rd Airborne will become the first living Medal of Honor recipient since the Vietnam War.

His actions occurred in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley during the deployment chronicled in the movie 'Restrepo.'"
