I'm back! Thanks Blake for getting me up and running...I owe you one or two or ten! We arrived safely at Pate around 11:30 this morning. We made it before the thunderstorms hit and I was so very thankful for that. Rick handled the trip well until we were about a mile away from the ranch and then he threw up...could be the bppv thing again, just something we'll have to keep an eye on. It was so hard to leave Baylor. Even though I know it's time to move on and Rick is ready for 6 hours of therapy, it's just very hard to leave such good people. And these folks at Pate have some very big shoes to fill! Rick did have one PT session when we got here. I filled out paperwork and answered the same stupid question "what are your goals for Rick?" that I've had to answer over and over again! I know they have to ask, but it just seems so obvious to me what the goal is. We made it over to the house (about 100 yards from therapy) at 3:30 and ate supper at 5:00. We are now sitting in his room just chilling out and getting away from all the hub bub in the house. He lives in a house with 15 other people, and although the house is big, it can feel like very close quarters at times. And I'm afraid I'm gonna have to get in the kitchen and do some cooking if our next meals are anything like we had tonight...Rick still needs to gain 30 pounds and this ain't gonna cut it!
Thanks to Sherry for updating the blog...hope y'all enjoyed her craziness! God really did have a sky full of angels watching over us today...highway 75 is no fun to drive and I was so glad when we got off of it.
Rick is tired tonight and it's only 6:30. Time for us to unpack and get situated. Thanks for you continued prayers and support. Keep the faith and keep believing. I see more and more of my old buddy Rick every day. We'll get there!
Love you all!
