Journal entry by Carrie Conway

An update from Kevin's sister Lori. 

Last night was pretty special for the LaCoste/O’Donnell family.  Kev has not been inside a home other than his own since before his accident.  Our families used to spend a lot of time at our house.  Friday night pizza nights, Sunday dinners, holidays, you name it.  We have missed having them there and are in the beginning stages of renovating to make it a lot easier.  In the meantime we figured there must be a way and so after a lot of research and measuring, we gave it a try.  With the help of portable ramps and taking some doors off the hinges, he got in! It was amazing.  There were a lot of tears and a lot of sighs if relief. We all wanted this so badly for him.  We had a great dinner and it seemed so normal.  Miss Maggie barely left Kevins side.  Funny how dogs can sense what we need.   I continue to be amazed at Kevin and Ali’s strength and their willingness to try anything.  I could not be more proud.  I am still smiling ear to ear 😊
