I wanted to take some time to thank each of you for all you have done these last 5 years. (Hard to believe!) Whether in person or from afar you have helped all of us go through this journey a little easier. We have come a long way since that day, we all remember where we were when we heard the news.
We have learned so much and Kenny is doing well – considering all that he has been through. We continue to hope for progress in spinal cord research and hope that someday it will help him in some way. Today I find my emotions a little less in check, I remember the physcial guy he was, so proud of the guy he is – I will be conscious more today of those "things he misses most". I will rub his sister’s belly (she is due in 4 weeks) and hug Ali and Abi just a little longer – for him.
I know each one of us has come through this thinking a little differently about our lives, we all look at the disabled just a little different and not one of us can pass by a wheelchair without thinking about "what" put this person in that chair.
We will forever be greatful and truly appreciate you all, please continue sending good thoughts our way. We do lean on your shoulders from time to time. You hold us up when we need a little help. We are so fortunate to have wonderful people around us.
With much love,
Jeanne, Skip and Kenny
… yeah, you can say it. My mom rocks.
