Nick and Brittany are here now visiting. They are Dake, Lyndsey and Gracey’s first cousins. Dake always enjoys family visiting. It seems to lift his spirits and seems to motivate him too. Right now all of them are in the kitchen plus Phillip and a friend of Gracey’s, Chesney cooking supper. The chatter and laughter is joy to my heart.
One Year at Johns Hopkins for Dake’s Heart Research
We are coming up on the one year mark of Dake’s research at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland. The whole family plus Phillip is planning on making the trip. We want to be together as we wait for his results and celebrate (hopefully) together. He has been working out in the swimming pool hoping to inflate his results. We plan on putting Dake in his old chair because of the damage done in the past. He will have a hard time adjusting back to it but it is best considering our luck with airlines and wheelchairs.
Lyndsey will be having a birthday the following Monday so she is going to pick a place in Baltimore to celebrate her special day. It is so fun having a certified chef in the family.
