Home Sweet Home

Thankfully the rest of the week went as planned. Sam had his 2 additional CME sessions with Ramon and they were wonderful. I think Sam did really well. He seems much stronger to me and he is even trying to organize his movements more. Sam also seems a bit quicker in his movements as well. As a matter of fact he is so quick that when Scott had to vent his G-tube, Sam kicked the tube extension so hard and fast he actually broke it. So... I got to spend half my day today at NYU Hospital getting Sam's feeding tube replaced. I understand how this news would be upsetting to most people. I can hear it out in cyber space now, "Oh, poor girl, can't she ever get a break..." Well actually today went by like butta... No glitches in the paperwork, no extended wait times, no traffic getting in and out of the city, and best of all Sam was able to tolerate the procedure wide awake without a peep and a great big snaggle toothed smile. All he needed was a little Elmo DVD and he was all set. Bravo my little man, Bravo!

Hang in there, Sam (and Carrie). Thinking of you on a cold night in western Canada, -26 degrees (Celsius), with a wind chill taking it down to -36 (and that's bloody cold, whether it's Centigrade or Fahrenheit). You folks take care...

I am so glad to hear that you guys are doing so well! No gasps here just a well deserved pat on the back to both you and Sam for going with the flow and having a successful day! As soon as these lingering cold disappear we will make plans to see that adorable smile in person! Hugs, Alise
