Good to be home

Our trip home was fairly uneventful, we made it home safely, no bags were lost, no broken chair, we enjoyed the first class flight almost as much as on the way to Thailand. I had a couple friends take care of my yard while we were gone, I was just hoping to have the lawn mowed once before I returned but was blown away at how much work was put in. My yard has never looked so beautiful, after being gone for over a month I cannot describe the emotion I felt when I pulled up to the house and it looked so lovely, just an overwhelming feeling of happiness to be home. You know who you are, thank you so much for making our home coming special.

It's so strange to live the same day twice, we left Thailand Friday morning at 6am, spent almost 20 hours flying home to arrive in San Francisco by 9 am Friday morning. By the time we went to bed Friday night we had been up for 55 hours. I had about 4 1/2 hours of broken up sleep on the plane and Jerry had about 3 hours, exhausted doesn't begin to describe how we felt. 6 days later and we still have not returned to a normal sleep pattern but it's getting better.

It's imperative to keep Jerry's body in optimum condition in order for the stem cells to flourish. Jerry has returned from Thailand with a better outlook and motivation, he's going back to school at the end of the month as well as return to physical therapy at SCI-FIT in Pleasanton. In addition we need to continue the home exercise program and find an acupuncturist. If any of you know of a great local acupuncturist please let me know via post or email to I truly believe the acupuncture was a great benefit for Jerry. Life is going to be very busy for us, but I'm so happy to see Jerry motivated again. 

It's great to be home, thank you to all who have helped, donated, supported, loved and followed us through this journey, we love you!

Yay! I'm glad you are back and glad you had a nice surprise with the work on your yard. You deserve it.

I hope you both get a little bit of time to rest, and that getting back to the full schedule will go smoothly. Praying God's strength for both of you.
