After that we stopped in to Sonic for ice cream. We sat in the car and listened to The Goo Goo Dolls ("Black Balloon"), Ryan Adams ("Lucky Now"), The Police ("Wrapped Around Your Finger") and Snow Patrol ("Crack the Shutters"), courtesy of Lightning 100.
The simple things mean a lot more now.
We made an impromptu visit to Sarah's surgeon's nurse yesterday, and we are so glad we did. Sarah had her staples removed. The nurse told us Sarah is doing well and could slowly begin to act more like a "normal" person. This is far from an "all clear," but it is obviously a step in the right direction. In the meantime, we continue to be blown away by the love of family and friends. Life is progressing.
The enormity of our situation continues to hit me. I am slowly realizing what has happened since December 5, 2011.
Thank you for helping us stay on track.
