Life has taken quite the traumatic turn for me. I am in acute kidney failure and have been away from the Valley for a while. I have a long road ahead of me and we still don’t know why it happened.
But out of this crazy journey I have come across a thousand blessings. I have certainly reconnected with my brothers, one showing up out of nowhere to visit in the Trail hospital for a day and the other in constant phone contact with me and offer-ing to do anything. My mom has been a huge support as she lives near Trail and has visited daily before I was released to her ‘custody’.
Old friends from high school and university have been incredible. They have been stopping by constantly for a bunch of laughs over some great times. They have taken me out to hockey games, helped with Watson, supported Mom and more.
But even more exciting is all the support I have received from you folks back home in the Columbia Valley. I cannot explain the feeling of having so many of you care for me. So many offers to help in so many ways that I don’t know where to begin. You are wonderful people.
I will be back soon. A couple more weeks or so is what I am hoping for but it is hard to say for sure. I just want to thank you all for everything that you have done. I am blessed to receive your love and care.
