6/22/2009

Thanks to everyone who participated in the silent auction put together by Erica.....once again the worlds generosity especially in these economic times, is astounding to me. I can't begin to say how thankful we are for all the help with Carol's healthcare bills.

Carol is doing so good. She is really impressing me how well she is walking on her new legs....this weekend she wore full length jeans for the first time in over a year. I know many amputees now, and never quite had the same sort of visual illusion with any of them. What I mean is, is that it is strange, in that when Carol has full length jeans/pants on, it looks completely normal. Not that I expected it not to....it's just been so long, that she seems to tall now:) . Especially when she is laying down with them on, she looks very long. All of which are great issues to be dealing with. We have gotten to go out to dinner with them on a couple times the last couple weekends. Its nice, she doesn't get out as much as she would like I think. Anyway, happy fathers day to all the dad's...all though it seems mostly women who read this. Thanks again...

I found your blog through cjane and have been following it ever since. Your family's story is so touching. I am so sorry for what happened to you. However, the strength that you have shown is such an inspiration. You seem to be an amazing person and an amazing father and husband. Happy Fathers' Day!

You are right, mostly female readers, but we maybe appreciate YOU more... Happy father's day to you, a wonderful supportive husband and father, who deals with more on a daily basis than many of us in our lives and handles it so well. If anyone deserves a wish for a happy father's day, it's you. Thanks for the example of love and strength that we read in your entries and for sharing it with us to make the world a better place.
