When we talked to Daniel today I found out something. We were talking about his electric scooter and he said to me "Guess what Aunt Carolyn-- It even has a HORN!" I started to laugh and told him wait till I tell everyone about that!!
I asked him if he used it yet and he said Oh Yeah! I did not ask the circumstances-----
I know he had it at a yearly festival Greenville has every year, that was
last weekend. He is so funny, wait till you meet him. I found out that his caregiver took him to the festival with her boyfriend last Sat. This was on her own time, just because she wanted to and thinks so much of him. I'm so glad that he has someone taking care of him that truly cares for him.
Daniel told me today that a few years ago he got to ride around the track at Indianapolis, but it wasn't with a race car driver. He would love to do like you mentioned Pam! The therapist at Harborside used to work at Miami Valley Hosp and he told me that after all he's seen, he would never ever get on motorcycle.
Tami, so good to see you here!! I bet you were amazed at all the news when you caught up. Daniel will have a lot to tell for sure. He's also still talking about becoming a Youth Pastor to start with. He said they usually move on to become the Pastor of the church. Then he smiles at me and says...so I'll look until I find the oldest Pastor I can find and get on there as Youth Pastor! Hope that doesn't sound bad--you have to know how Daniel loves to joke around and be funny. The way I understand it, he can get his college education taken care of when he is ready to go, but for right now, he's having to concentrate on this therapy-- it is at an important point when they have to stay on top of things.
Katie is doing fine. She just got back from New York city. Her Youth Group went there for a week to minister to people there. She came back with some great pictures and great stories. I sure will give them your love and hugs and tell them! Thanks, Tami, so much.
I hope too that we can get together at one of those places sometime. How cool that would be. Daniel would love that! You take care.
We're getting together for a birthday party this weekend, that's for sure, but no details yet. Guess we better work on that pretty quick!
Daniel was fine today when we talked to him. No news, except he is working so hard in therapy stretching muscles and walking--repeating what he has been doing to get better.
