latest update from Julie:

Friday 2300h:

As many of you already have seen on David's Facebook, David is coming home next Tuesday, July 12th! He's so excited! This morning an OT from insurance dropped off some equipment we will need for a while and we are getting everything in place for his homecoming. I'll be in Vineland for the weekend, celebrating Ryan's 16th birthday, cleaning out my desk at work, and packing up my clothes. Today I picked up ribs from the Barrie Ribfest on my way to St. John's, thanks to Mike V., who mentioned it was going on. David was very happy! (me too, I may have eaten more of them than he did). I'm starting to feel glimmers of joy and normalcy for the first time in a long while.

tuesday 2220

David's getting around with 2 canes now! He's finally off of isolation, so no more yellow gowns and sweaty gloves. Tomorrow he goes back down to St. Michael's to have him arm checked by the orthopedic surgeon. His sister, Jo-Anne, from Ottawa, will be here and is going with him. David has noticed some hearing loss in his left ear, so we will be looking further into that. The team at St. John's meets tomorrow and will probably be setting a discharge date in the next week or so! David's really anxious to get home to Bowie and me!

ps from paul: David posted on facebook that he's coming home tuesday next; plus it looks like the St. Mike's trip to the fracture clinic was postponed 'til thursday.

So good to hear of the amazing progress and I love Dave's sense of humour!

Julie, my Rog has worked in that area and we have both been so sad to hear of the fire and at the thought of the huge losses of those things you mentioned being so dear. It is good no human lives have been lost and you have reason to be proud. My heart is always with the critters and fauna, too.

friday 1245h:

Sorry I haven't posted anything in a few days. I have hit the point of complete exhaustion and am just kind of hunkered down and in survival mode now that David is doing so much better and I can let down my guard a bit. David is in good spirits and doing more and more every day. He is working on stairs now and they are talking about getting rid of the walker and using canes next week. Still no idea of a discharge date. David has really enjoyed having his brother, Michael, here this week, and it has given me a chance to spend some time at home with the kids. The fire in my hometown of Los Alamos, New Mexico continues to burn and is now the largest fire in the history of New Mexico. It looks like they have been able to keep it out of the town, but it is still burning out of control. On the news you will hear only of the worry about the lab and radioactive stuff, but you will not hear of the amazing people who are donating food and time to feed over 1,000 firefighters and National Guard. You will not hear of the beautiful places, animals, historical sites that have been marred by this fire. It is an unbelievable loss, but a huge blessing that no one has died. I am very proud of my beautiful birthplace and the people there.

Julie's getting about a week off to attend to much needed stuff at home, so there's been a short hiatus in the updates. However, I hear that several friends have visited David in the last week and he is cheerful, doing well, and improving steadily.

He told me (in fun) that he wants to do one of those late night wacky commercials that one might see on TV where some guy is yelling loudly about some INCREDIBLE product he has to sell for a bargain price...David's product being a "MIRACLE WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM". It's simple: You buy yourself a $30,000 motorcycle, get your license, take it out a couple of times and then drive it full tilt into a brick wall. You WILL lose weight in the weeks that follow. David has proof of this, because he has lost 42 pounds since the accident. The infomercial will require people to send in $20 to David in return for a detailed manual coaching them every step of the way.

He has a pretty bizarre sense of humour... ;-) I wonder how many people would order the manual?

Here's the Friday update from Julie:

Friday 2300h:



David got to move from the high wheeled walker to a regular walker this afternoon because he is doing so well. The PT also started doing some breath therapy and chest thumping to help clear out the gunk in his lungs. Last night at David's house I was able to access the Mudcat folk music forum and see the thread that George C. started there at David's request. Thank you George and everyone following there for your thoughts, prayers, and encouragement. I printed off the whole thread and took it to David today. He was very touched. And then George showed up for a visit too! I'm home in Vineland with my babies for a few days. Taylor and Ryan just finished exams and Tay's been sick all week with strep throat.

This just keeps sounding better and better! Coughing is good for getting pneumonia crud up out of the lungs, but it can sure hurt, esp. if one has been injured as he has. Tell him it helps to hug a pillow or, if someone brought him one, a teddy bear.:-) After heart surgery, the hospital gave me a heart shaped pill to use for "productive" coughing.

Playing the guitar! WoW!

Thanks for the updates and keep up the good work, David!

I visited David in his new lodgings today. He's on the third floor of the Rebhab clinic and he has a balcony. From this balcony can be seen an enormous and beautiful weeping willow and some other trees and grass. We talked about stuff for about 2 hours, and then a couple of his motorcycle club friends showed up. He is improving rapidly, left arm is now working fine, but they say he has a touch of pneumonia, so he coughs a fair bit. His mood is cheerful and upbeat.

Here's the Thursday update from Julie:

Thursday 2220h:

This morning I packed up 6 1/2 weeks worth of stuff in my hotel room. It's remarkable what one can collect! Giant thanks to Kim Gate for picking me up and bringing me home to Barrie. And what an overwhelming surprise to come into the house and find that it had been cleaned by my new neighbour, Jennifer! I did not have the energy for that job and was dreading it. After I got settled in and collected some things for David, I went back down to St. John's. David had his first day of therapy and was pretty worn out. They are going to make an appointment for him at a special clinic at St. Michael's to have his lungs checked. We'll go down in a wheelchair taxi. Mary Hetherington and her girls stopped by for a nice visit and David was able to play Mary's guitar, which was a huge relief to him. It was good to hear him sing and play!

update from Julie:

wednesday 2130h:

When I arrived at St. John's today, David had had a long and wonderful shower, shaved, dressed, and been on a recon mission all over the hospital in his wheelchair. Needless to say, he was feeling pretty darn pleased with himself. They will not be sending him back to St. Michael's, as they are not overly worried about his lung infection. He had some assessments today and everyone is amazed at how well he is doing considering how sick he was. I will be checking out of the hotel tomorrow and have a ride to Barrie. Thanks again for all the offers of help. Visiting hours at St. John's are 12:00 to 8:30 p.m., by the way, for anyone wanting to visit.

latest update from Julie:

tuesday 2100h:

Hey everyone! Wow, thanks for all the offers of rides. You guys are all so good to me (us). Things have changed a bit, so everything is on hold for a couple of days. The doctor at St. John's is concerned about David's lungs and may send him back to St. Mike's, so I'm going to give it a few days and make sure David is really staying there before I leave the hotel. It's easy to get to St. Johns on the subway and bus from here. St. John's is lovely in an old residential neighbourhood. Everyone is very nice and made David feel comfortable. I got to go on the ambulance transfer with David, which was great. Right now, David has a private room with a balcony! There are lovely grounds with a path and lots of big, old trees. I got to take David for a walk in a wheelchair this afternoon. He put on real clothes and breathed real fresh air, heard birds, smelled flowers, felt the breeze. It was sooo good for him! Tomorrow he gets his first shower in 46 days and will be assessed by occupational therapy and physiotherapy. MRI results showed some tears in some knee ligaments, but nothing requiring surgery. I'll keep you posted when/if I need help with a ride later in the week. THANK YOU!
