Tuesday night update: from Dad 11-20-12

Just left the hospital where Shane is finishing up his day; at 630pm we were able to celebrate by rapidly consuming 2 massive BMTs from Subway; what a feast. He began his day with a 730 breakfast followed by Physical therapy, then a session of Occupational therapy, 15 minute break, then a session of Speech therapy. Then came lunch then he jumped right back into a session of Physical therapy then a session working on wheel chair techniques. His grandmother was with him the entire afternoon where she is working on getting him to engage in cross-words; really not his strong suit.

We visited some with Victor his next door neighbor for a half an hour or so; he was involved with a major accident on a skate board at about 40 MPH; no kidding, downhill skateboarding. He showed us some video of him traveling close to 50 MPH with 4 of his friends on one of his runs. He is a student at WCSU; Shane and him have become friends; Shane and him have been discussing moving forward.

With Thanksgiving on our doorstep I have to confess I have had an early jump. I am finding myself giving thanks through the day for all of the seemingly small stuff that quite honestly I routinely took for granted. Getting up in the morning, moving around the house, seeing the blue skies, being alive and living in the moment. Then I think about my family, friends, those who despite their struggles continue to reach out and share their love, hope, and lives with us. I consider the faith that has been given as a gift and the Hope our our salvation, and quite frankly am extremely humbled. I consider the gift of Shane and am blown away. May this Thanksgiving holiday be full of heartfelt gratitude and reflection that produces a lasting joy for you and your families!
