one hour of talking with janine in the car to the airport is an exhausting mental exercise--- ideas fly around so quickly thaT I REALLY NEED 2 CUPS OF CAFFEEN TO KEEP UP... BUT WE MADE IT.-
WE DISCUSSED NOT DISCUSSING MY IDEA OF A LOCAL TV PROJECT- BUT IT CERTAINLY IS NOT SOMETHING WE COUDL BEGIN TO TACKLE-- THO ANYONE ELSE IS WELCOME TO THE IDEA....
THERE AE ALOT OF ANGRY PEOPLE WANTING THIER VOICE TO BE HEArd.... soooo...... all these local town tv stations should have an open mic-- anyone 24 hours a day can have 5 minutes tv time to say anything they want-- then play them back during thte day-- like commercials are for regular tv... some could be ... amusing, instructive, or a release valve for anger. local tv ends up with alot of dead air... I THINK THOSE ARE SOMEHOW FEDERALLY FUNDED????? these coudl be a good thing..\ ward????? you are the expert????
AND THEN THERE IS THE NEXT BOOK IDEA.... REALLY ALREADY WRITTEN... GOT TO WORK ON THAT...
i did put the details of teh pups on the comment column-- the paula AND PENNY from the kennel in germany that sent us mayhem will be arriving in boston 3:-4:00 on monday-- lufthansa/....
DEVIN TOOK the DAY OFF TODAY TO GRADUate--
david and friend maTT PUT IN THE MITSUBISHI HEATER/AC IN THE TRAINING ROOM-- NOW THE LAT THING TO MAKE US MORE SECURE WILL BE TEH AUTOMATIC GENERATOR FOR THE LAUNDRY-- FROM WHENCE COMETH THE ELECTRICITY FOR THE ICU AND T TENT ( CAMERA WHYFY) WHICH I HPE TO GET DONE BEFORE DOG FEST.
THEY PUT IT IN JUST IN TIME FOR A PIPE TO BREEAK IN THE CELLAR-- SO NOW ALL WATER FOR THE DEAGLE HOUSE OR NUTT HOUSE HAS TO COME OUT OPF TH EKITCHEN-- DAVID SAID HE WOULD BE HERE TODAY TO FIX THAT PIPE.
DAVID #1 HAS A WONDERFUL COLLECTION OF SKILLS I HOPE HE IS TEACHING MATT... BECAUSE MATT IS MORE LOCAL AND MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP IN EMERGENCIES... HAVING "BEGINNER" MATT FIX PLUMBING DOES NOT WORRY ME... IF YOU DO SOMETHING WRONG WITH TEH PLUMBING YOU JUST MOP IT UP.
NOT SO WITH ELECTRICITY.
THANK HEAVENS FOR A GOOD CUT AND PASTE TODAY
Well it has been an entire week since Elvis and I left SDP and what a week it has been!
We spent the weekend + Monday exploring campus and Boston as well as stopping for coffee with some fabulous friends! (Aileen and Jezlyn). Luckily Elvis loves going to Starbucks as much as I do 😉 We also stopped by Northeastern University Police Department where Elvis made many friends and I want to thank them for all their support!
Tuesday was another hospital day and Elvis took everything in his stride. Everyone on the GI floor were so happy to meet him and extremely impressed as I walked down the hallway with no crutches! I have never been in Children's hospital without my crutches so you could say it was a little bit emotional when I walked through the doors without them! We then headed out to Cheesecake with Shea and Elvis was perfect. The waiters did not even realise he was there at first!
By Wednesday, Elvis had been exposed to multiple distractions including trains flying past us and children trying to jump over him but he has stayed right by my side. I then headed to my American Health Care class where Elvis was once again very well behaved (even answering some of the questions about Healthcare financing 😂)
Today was again another hospital day, which included Elvis meeting my primary doctor who was a big reason Elvis was a possibility! Elvis has decided he very much likes Dr Fitzgerald! She also seemed less worried about me taking on the Boston Children's Hospital walk next month as I will have Elvis (it was looking like I would have to do it in a wheelchair before last week). Completing this walk has been a goal of mine for a while and unfortunately has not been a possibility in recent years so I am excited that it seems hopeful this year!
We also found out this week that the hospital is going ahead with another surgery. This surgery will be on my left leg as we are trying to prevent more damage and is currently scheduled for July 26th. We are still waiting for other surgery dates but for now we will be focusing on this one and the recovery. I think Elvis knew I was a little nervous about the fact I will be back in a wheelchair while relearning to walk so he made an extra special effort to cheer me up and reminding me that we are on this journey together 💙
So that is our update of the past week. It has gone by so fast and even though it has only been a week, Elvis has already helped me in so many ways, saving me from falls and helping me back off the floor. He has brought so many smiles to so many faces this week and I can't wait to see what our journey continues to bring! Stay tuned for more updates soon!
Love Fiona and Elvis ❤️
