We are anxious to get this year behind us... 2009 won't go down as one of our favorite years! We are looking forward to a new start in 2010, however. There is much to look forward to. Mike is making steady progress, albeit slow. The last few days have been rather hard on him as our friend with the same disease died last week. Yesterday I attended a lovely memorial service for her. She was a remarkable person. Mike was eager to hear about it. We were able to share some positive thoughts last night.
Mike got a pretty bad headache while at therapy yesterday and didn't feel like going this morning. I think he needs some extra sleep. He has had some anxiety, lots of late nights and lots of holiday activity. Rest always helps.
We want all of you to know that we have treasured your kindness and service this past year. We could not have come this far without you. We love our family more than we ever thought possible. Each has offered a measure of service that is unique and appreciated.
Please help us with the fight in 2010... May each of you be blessed in your lives.
