Testing 1 2 3
Written Sep 23, 2013 9:48am by Suzanne LaboyAfter a week away at the annual Bernardo Golf Invitational in SC, Peter is having a full day of cognitive testing. This will give the doctors and therapists an idea of where things are at this time in his recovery and rehab. This test is usually given at the one year mark but because he has met a lot of his goals, this step will help dictate the next course of action. It's been almost 7mths since our world was turned upside down. His progress and determination helps push him to the next phase of this journey. Please continue to pray. We have many blessings!!
Based on the testament of my brothers, Peter's golf game has improved so much that maybe the Amateur PGA is an option!!!
NASCAR at Richmond
Written Sep 9, 2013 9:42pm by Suzanne LaboyPeter and a handful of friends go every year to the Richmond race and this year was no exception. However, it turned out to be alittle more exciting that previous races. Peter and his crew were able to get pit passes which included tours of the garages and a sit in with the drivers at the pre race meetings. At that moment Peter was able to meet and get an autograph from Juan Pablo Montoya. Probably one of the coolest things he's ever experienced. Special thanks to everyone who was involved and made that happen for him.
School is back in session and the kids are getting into a groove. I, myself have started working some hours at the hospital. Felt nice to get very warm welcomes and tight hugs from my coworkers. Peter continues his daily therapy and keeps progressing along. Day by day, exceeding goals and blowing away target dates. I'm so proud of him. He's now on a therapy mission to meet Bob Woodruff and find out more regarding his own foundation. They have a lot of similarities in their stories and Peter has been learning alot about him. We are trying to set up a meet and greet with him as well. I have become friends with his wife who has given me lots of support during this time. Hopefully this fall we can make that meeting happen.
Gradually we are getting out and thanking people, businesses, friends, coworkers for all of the support we have received. I don't know if I'll ever get to reach each and everyone, but I sure would like to try. The days fly by and the single parenting concept that creeps into our daily routines makes it alittle tough at times to get anything else done, but we are all doing our best. I count my blessings daily which include the members of the church in our neighborhood that we have been attending for about a month or so. The kids love it and everyone has been so welcoming. The pastor and the congregation have had their arms open each time my family walks through those doors. It helps my healing soul one song at a time. Feeling blessed, loved and overwhelmed all at the same time.
Written Aug 27, 2013 10:28pm by Suzanne LaboyTonight we went to the Nationals games with some of Peter's coworkers and friends from APD. The kids got passes to go down to the field with Peter during batting practice. Everyone had a great time. It was nice to see everyone's face that was able to make it. Thanks for coming out. And the Nats pulled out a win. We definitely should do more fun family things like that with our friends. It meant alot to Peter to see everyone from his department there. Thanks to all who participated and especially our driver who got us there and back safely! Much appreciated Deputy Chief!
