Monday, January 25, 2010

Dave has been feeling great with the halo gone! He will get the splint off Thursday at 8am, then use a boot ( like an aircast) for awhile. He will be able to walk on that and resume walking at PT.

We have a busy end of winter/spring coming up! My brother has been with us for 2 weeks job hunting in the area, he is leaving this weekend but coming back in Feb. The 2nd week of Feb. we will be returning to Barksdale AFB for a week. We are very excited to see friends and the community that helped us out so much in the beginning! At the end of Feb. we will be going to NYC for the weekend for dinner, a show, and some R&R. In March Dave will be in a celebrity golf tournament and I will be turning 27! The end of April and beginning of May we will be attending the EOD Memorial Service and Ball, then we fly home for a day and leave for Cabo San Lucas for a Amputee golf tournament that Dave will be in.

Sometime in between all this we hope to move out of the Mologne House into an apartment! I am very excited about this b/c 1 room is just not cutting it for me anymore. I have daily anxiety attacks when I can't find things....

Branching Out

Wii's for Warriors has really taken off, we have given out 9 so far (That's close to $4,000 worth)! Dave and I are always looking for new ways to help out around here, so we have been talking with a few guys around the mologne house who sit around and play guitar at night. We decided to start up a jam session/classes for guys in the hospital and the MH. We are going to look into buying a few used guitars and getting this going within the next week. This would be extremely helpful for guys who have played before and may have lost an arm or hand and are learning to play again with the other hand. Also it provides a soldier with any injury an opportunity to get together with others with a common interest.

Home for the Holidays

Dave and I have been at home in Diamondhead since Dec. 21. Dave has been on the golf course pretty much every day that it has not rained. Most days he has played all 18 holes!

We are heading back to Walter Reed on the 5th!
