Escrito el Mar 5, 2014 9:46pm por Suzanne Laboyyesterday was the second snow day in a row for the kids. not a big deal. all we decided to do that day was stay in pj's and watch cartoons with the kids in the bed. the boys decided they wanted to watch Monsters University. I'm on my laptop trying to plan a summer, laying right beside Peter. All of a sudden he has this look in his eyes and for about 5 min there is no way to bring him back. This one lasted about 5 min. Miles called the medics. Peter's face was turning blue, which i wasn't sure if that was normal for him, since i haven't experiences the seizure that way. Medics arrived and all know Peter by name. We take him closer to Alex ER, its also where his neurologist practices. they get him in quickly and do tests. he's more arousable at this point. after the docs have spoke and meds adjusted, we are sent home. ALL on alert!!! To see something like that in your bed, in your home, with children all around, it has to take a tool on your being. We are all exhausted tonight. I don't think any of us rested last eve. We see the neurologist in the morning. sending prayers out tonight and praying alittle harder that GOD will wrap his lovely arms around the kids extra special hard. Keep going strong #LABOYSTRONG #MOTOR8 #SUPERMAN
A Year of Life
Escrito el Feb 26, 2014 8:20pm por Suzanne LaboyTomorrow will mark one year. I can hardly believe it. I look back and think about all of the things we have all been through. Some I would like to forget. Some I will remember forever.
I can't fully quite comprehend how many people have touched our lives. Our family and friends have been there for us through thick and thin. Our coworkers have stood by us. We have been touched by others who we didn't even know.
All I can say at this point is Thank You All!!!
Peter had shoulder surgery yesterday. He has again surprised me and is doing extremely well. I am so proud of my superman!!
Traumatic brain injury has become a common term used in our every day life but we will not have it define us. We will continue to learn and grow. Healing takes a lifetime and we have a lot of life to live.
I hope to help others as we have been helped. Not sure what that will look like in the future. For now, we will live each day to the fullest and love harder than ever. Laboystrong!
Escrito el Feb 23, 2014 7:48pm por Suzanne LaboyHello all. It's been a while since I have posted. Lots going on. Meds were changed early January and it has made a huge difference. Executive functioning skills have been put to the test and he is rising up to the challenge. With the meds, he has had more initiation, motivation
and a desire to do more and accomplish things. We have met lots of people on our list and a lot of questions have been answered.
His biggest frustration is not being able to drive. I remind him of patience and all the time we have from this moment on. He is starting to get involved with some other "hobbies". He wants to get back into photography and video. His go pro birthday gift from his brother has warranted lots of trips to best buy for new equipment. NASCAR has started as well as motor cross. It gives him a reason to want to get involved with the kids again... They love it.
Therapy comes in many different styles, shapes, forms and involves a wide variety of familiar people who can help Peter progress and work his brain. He's most comfortable with those who know him, his safe haven.
He is having surgery on Tuesday for an arthroscopic shoulder injury. The pain has interrupted his sleep patterns and hindering from doing what he can outdoors.
Please pray for his medical team and those taking care of him on Tuesday.
I am extremely optimistic that this will be successful and will accomplish what they need while in there.......
Thanks to all for showing your love and support. He will come to me from being out and tell me all of the people who have said hi!!! Makes him feel good and gives him the strength and courage to move on!!!
