Day 1295 - Dec 15, 2011

We have had a pretty busy couple of days. We were having a cookie exchange in our neighborhood and I have been working on that and Kevin and Efren went out last night - giving me a chance to get it all finished without bother.

So while they were out, I guess the boys picked up a couple of chics! Kevin called and kept telling me "HOT". I had no idea what he meant so I had Efren get on the phone and he told me that they were clubbing with a couple of really hot girls! Kev sounded pretty darn happy on the phone, lol. So did Efren, hehe.

I am just so happy Kevin gets to do these things more often. He really needs to be going out like a normal 23 year old!

And in other news, I wish there was a way you guys could see how well Kevin is talking now. He surprises me every day with new words that he comes up with on his own. Last night Efren started speaking in Spanish to Kevin and Kev jokingly said "America. En-guh-lish." I cracked up and when I asked him where he learned either of those words he said "I don't know". He really just says stuff all the time now and it's coming naturally. Do I think he will ever really fluently talk - probably not - but considering I was told he would never be able to speak a word because the whole language center of his brain is gone - we will take it!

That's pretty much it though. My dad is home from the hospital and doing well. They took him off the chemo for a bit to see if that helps. He's been on it for over 3 years now and it's just rough on a person's body.

So I think I'll go scrap a bit. Catch ya' in a few days!

I'm so glad you are doing some fun things! Cookie exchanges, Kevin going out, etc. That's wonderful! :) Yeah, not much of what was said in the beginning about Kevin holds truth for him. It's still crazy to think of what he does and can do! :) Determination will get you ahead and all of you have shown that over and over. He is sure being watched over!
I'm so glad your dad is home from the hospital and so happy for him. I hope he continues to feel better each day! :)
Take care and have a great Sunday!

Kevin has certainly proved the predications to be incorrect. Both of you are incredible.

Good to read your dad is home and recouperating. Fantastic reading of good times and activities!
Have a very Merry Christmas!
