Journal entry by Carrie Conway

What a beautiful Saturday to watch our little guy playing flag football and baseball. It’s the perfect 1 week marker of being home.  

Last night, Colin came home from practice with a huge smile across his face.  He knew that Kevin was going to make every effort to go to his playoff flag football games.  His coaches, in an effort to support Colin (and Kevin) sent home a team jersey for Kevin to wear to the game. Colin was thrilled!  This morning, after we woke up, we saw the jersey hanging on our bedroom door- as Colin didn’t want Kevin to forget to wear it. As a result of Kevin being there, Colin played great! 

After flag football, we went home for lunch.  Kevin was able to try out a comfy recliner that Cathy Bilmazes and her sister Joanne (friends from my school) gave us.  It’s a really nice option, so that he isn’t wheelchair bound all day.  He’s excited to park himself there to watch football tomorrow! 

We then went to Colin’s baseball game, where he played amazingly again.  He just needed his biggest cheerleader there to encourage him. 

So many people from the community came to see us, to wish Kevin well, to check up on how we were doing, and to just give us hugs.  It was wonderful.  
The day felt relatively normal.  ❤️
