Catching Up

I made it home to CT to see Katie and I think the weekend was good for both of us. I know that I felt better just seeing that she really was ok and she started to feel better while I was there. We had a great time just lounging around our parents house - talking, laughing and doing all kinds of research on hemorrhagic strokes and cavernous malformations. Sounds fun, I know!

Her doctor told her that eventually she will need surgery to repair the rupture and that he wasn't sure if it would be invasive or non-invasive. He referred her to a doctor in Phoenix who is supposedly the best of the best. She sent all her tests, medical records, etc. and we waited for them to call. Obviously, we were hoping for non-invasive. They called her Friday night and said that it would definitely be invasive surgery and that she would be in the hospital for five days. We are waiting now for them to schedule the surgery :o(

Sucks. Big. Time.

Last week Dad came down for some spring training baseball. He's been going to games just about every day and will be here for about a month. On Sunday, Adam's mom came to town to spend some time with us. There were lot of laughs and a lot of tears as we talked about how much we miss Adam. I can't believe that it's been four years since he left us. It still doesn't seem real.
Gail left on Tuesday and my brother KC and sister-in-law Jodi came into town on Thursday. Poor Jodi had the flu by the time she got here and spent all day Friday in bed with a fever. KC, Dad and I went to see the Pirates vs the Rays in Bradenton with KC's high school friend Scott.

Fortunately Jodi was better on Saturday after a walk and some fresh air. We went down to the beach for lunch, drinks and the sunset. It was a beautiful weekend - sunny and in the 80's - finally!! We had a great visit and then they were headed back to SLC and cold weather.

Oh yeah - I've officially been logged in for 30 months now. Time flies when you are having fun :o) Let's hope I'm at least half way there!

Oh shucks for your sister. Hoping it would have been non-invasive. How fun to hang at your parent's and just be kids at home.

What??? You have family in SLC??? This is where Tate's Kingdom is. You must email if you ever visit here!

Happy 30th!! Closer each and every month!
