6 Months..

Today marks the 6 month anniversary of Mario's injury. I can't believe it has only been 6 months and I can't believe it has already been 6 months at the same time. I don't talk about how things are going much ever on here. Mario is just not as comfortable having every detail of his life out here.

We are incredibly blessed that he was able to make such a quick physical recovery. He was able to go back to work full time after about 2 months. We're still dealing with some residual issues that are not uncommon in survivors of traumatic brain injuries, and they're not easy to deal with. Our lives have definitely changed over the past 6 months. Things aren't as carefree as they used to be. After being in a rut for a while, and realizing that fixing things on his own is not going to happen, he/we are finally taking steps in the right direction. There is a light at the end of the tunnel...hopefully our lives will get back to normal, or better, soon.

We are still eternally grateful for all of the love, thoughts, prayers, donations, etc. throughout this whole ordeal.

If you have any specific questions, leave them in the comments section and I'll answer them next week.

I am so glad that Mario is recovering well. I hope the process continues and everything goes back to "normal" for you guys. It is such a tragic wake up call when things like that happen. I could not imagine going through what you have endured. Tell Mario hi and good luck on the total recovery. I will be praying.

I am so glad Mario is recovering well. I know I haven't asked lately, but not because we don't think about y'all. Just don't want you to think I'm a crazy stalker. ;) I hope everything is going well and still if you ever need anything, don't hesitate to say the word!
