I'm Still Standing

With a little help from my friends....

Such grit and determination

I'm proud of you Scotty. I know it wasn't easy but you pushed hard today.

We're still hanging around the 8th floor. We should be moving tomorrow to JRB. We've put in our reservation requests... 6th floor with Kathy, Keira and Fran, OT with Carole, private room and Dr. Young whom we've gotten to know and admire during our tenure on the JRB Patient Advisory Council.

Keep on rocking.....


Here are a couple links with info on the mission to Haiti


a blog from one of the surgeons http://rushnews.wordpress.com/2010/01/26/mission-to-haiti-dr-jeff-mjaanes-first-blog-entry/

and for anyone on FaceBook there is a Facebook Group that is helping pay the overwhelming financial expenses to send Dr. Ben over to Haiti. He took on the expense personally but his support group has rallied (much like Scott's) to help in the financial burden. If you feel so inclined to donate or if you just can join and spread the word. http://www.facebook.com/#/group.php?gid=263316483030&ref=mf


I'm feeling a little better. Since Scott got all his activities completed this morning I went home for a nap. The next few days as Scott adjusts to life at Bowman and the 2-3 hours of physical therapy (PT) and occupational therapy (OT) (Hey Carole) I'll be spending a lot of time at the hospital to help with the transition.

It's a fantastic positive step forward. But with all change comes apprehension. It's so comforting to know that we've already got some great friends that happen to be fantastic nurses there to support us. (Don't forget our bread Kath - I'm craving)

This will serve as todays update unless Scott decides to get creative. See you on the flip side kids.

And because I've been asked...feel free to share the blog website with anyone you like. If they are important enough in your life to share with then they are important enough in ours.
Feeling the love....always feeling the love....

Brandi n Scott I recieved this via e-mail from a friend after sharing the web site. It touched me n thought it would you too. I don't think she will mind me sharing............. Sara

I don't know ur cousin but I checked out ur link because u have kind of been keeping us all updated with how he is doing. It was a beautiful sight, like a journey and I am sure very theraputic for everyone. Did he get in an accident? Just wanted to say that I worked on a floor much like he appears to be on and just watching the critical pts get better is so rewarding. He looks like he is in good hands and has a good family. Like I said I don't know him but it was very touching to read. Talk to ya later!

Wow, you are amazing Scott! :) And so are your doctors, nurses, therapists (both physical and mental)...and I know you couldn't have done it without Brandi's support. It's awesome to see you making such progress.

Brandi, it sounds like you still aren't feeling 100% so if there's anything we can do, we're around, please ask. Anything.

I hope the move to JRB goes well today. We'll be over to hang once you get settled.

Love you guys.
