Sorry for the delays in providing updates, I know many of you have been wondering how Heidi and Megan are doing and hoping for some more details. I will continue to provide basic updates here on my blog, please understand that it takes time to manage the site and to write about things that are helpful but not too detailed, it’s prudent to keep it simple 🙂
Heidi was recently transferred to a post-surgery rehab center where she will continue her care and strengthening. They have the necessary OT and PT services along with meals and nursing services that she continues to require. We do not have any timeframe for how long she will be at the rehab facility.
Megan continues to recover at home and is doing her best to be in a routine again. Also, her ongoing medical care has been established. She is still in pain and her body needs a lot of rest. She and I are spending a lot of time together when I’m not with Heidi…I love hearing Meg’s laugh when she sees me doing something stupid. Being her “cool” dorky dad is a blessing!
I don’t want to make Heidi’s location public, if you would like to visit or send a card to her please contact me directly for that information. She would love to have visitors.
Many have asked how I’m doing. I’m coping, which doesn’t say much but it’s hard to explain the emotions and physical aspects of being a husband and father in a situation like this. My heart aches for my wife and daughter and I am very aware of making sure I stay healthy in all areas of my life – spiritually, physically, and emotionally. I have my close friends to help me and I’m receiving the necessary medical care to proactively stay on top of things.
Big thanks for our MRC friends in Appleton for setting up meals for me and Megan — love you guys!
