You said it all, Ginny, because your story WILL help others which is the best thing about this site. I am so happy for you both. Kevin must be so happy to be home again. That feeling of being in your own home, surrounded by your own stuff!!! Priceless. It will help his recovery so much. Sounds like he’s doing amazing and fighting thru this.
Hello Ginny and Kevin !!
My congratulations on getting home Kevin !! Excellent work !!
I hope the days are as good as they can be and continue to be even better . Be good to you . Take care of you . Both of you !
Great news Ginny! You know as much as I think the medical community, doctors, hospitals, etc really do have our best interests at heart…our family and friends really DO have our best or better interest at heart.
These past months as you have been delaing with Kevin’s recovery, the possibility of a rest home, getting your place ready for him. All of that just shows how much you care and how lucky Kevin is to have you there. If it wasn’t for your fight on this…well he probably wouldn’t be home.
I know that your story and hard work will be a great sense of hope for others facing similar cirumstances. You and Kevin will be/and ARE a source of inspiration and you must both be so proud of that. But I’m sure all of your emotions right now are just those of relief and ultimate happiness just to both be in your own home. What better place to finish getting well?!?!?
