Thank you Ty for such a beautiful account of our journey so far. You not only have given a wonderful account of our days but a beautiful tribute to your dad,myself and our family!
So much has happen in a relatively short time,Rick has had two surgery's and spent from the 19th of August until the 16th of September in the hospital going from critical care to acute care to in patient rehab. we have spent each day and night together loving a lot , laughing a lot crying a little and loving and laughing some more! We have smuggled food into the hospital, snuggled in a way too small hospital bed and wheeled down to the cafeteria for a ice cream date. Not exactly what we were planning for our summer but none the less we are together having some great adventures.
Each day as we go to rehab and look around there are always those who we can see that are struggling more than we are. They are young, old, some have family support, some don't. We are so grateful to have such a wonderful support group!! Rick has gone from not being able to speak or eat solid food to being able to communicate and eat what ever he wants. He has gone from no use of this right side to walking with assistance and a cane. He is amazing!! We go to radiation five days a week and to out patient re-had three to four times a week. Rick takes chemotherapy everyday. He is doing so well!! We are staying at my cousin house in Utah, she is truly an angel and we are so blessed to have not only the use of her home but to be able to spend time with her.
Last night we watched the movie 17 Miracles, what a wonderful movie! We all have our own handcarts to push and as long as we keep our faith in the Lord and our faith in our journey we will endure to the end, but as we endure we need to remember to enjoy!! There are always rainbows after rain and the sun after a long dark night, as we push up the hill remember there is another side to that long steep hill. ENJOY THE JOURNEY!!
