Sorry I have been out of touch…

So many of you have been so wonderful to us. Brian has been excellent about getting back to everyones posts and email. I apologize that I have not been so interactive. Our situation is tough. We have not yet recovered from the ordeal of losing Kelsey. I watch my husband and there is so little I can do to comfort him. I play with my daughter when she is awake, and every night I check her to make sure she is breathing. Hell even if I think she has been napping too long I check her.  I am working as much as my body will allow me to without passing out from exhaustion.  Work has saved me from losing my mind. I could not bear sitting at home day in and day out thinking about the tragedy that befell us. 

My friends, you are all wonderful. I do read your posts of encouragement and love and support. They mean the world to me as I am sure they do Brian.  I am thrilled for your successes (Mike and Mike, Sarah, and Rachel) and dismayed by your setbacks (Kepi, Amani and Bob, Lisa and Bob, Gerry and Rhonda, and Michelle and Steve) Also, I am heartened by your determination to continue your journeys. I pray for you all.  You all have my appreciation and love.

Riley is growing and becoming more wonderful everyday. Whenever she smiles I know that every hurdle we have faced and are going to face is well worth it. She is amazing.

To all those that donated to my Heart walk, I thank you as well. I was able to raise 300.00 for the American Heart Association in one week and was the second highest contributor to my team in Radiology (I think). It was all for a good cause and my body has still not forgiven me for walking 3.2 miles without a break!

Remember I am still here even though my responses are slow in coming. I will be back up to chatter mode once I get some sanity back into my life.

 

Love,

 

Lisa

Love to all, Brian

First Birthday as a Daddy!

Yes folks, another year has past and what a year it has been. Riley was happy to help Daddy celebrate his 37th birthday at BJ’s Brewhouse in San Antonio. Our many thanks to Papa Larry and GranMarne for the wonderful dinner! It was excellent!
