Journal entry by Gigi Lynch

Hey everyone! So sorry haven’t written anything over the weekend. Honestly, it’s been a whirlwind but thankfully things are starting to come together with a great deal of help from everyone. 

As of this morning, we are scheduled to leave in two weeks on the 27th to go to Chicago where Mel will be working with the therapists at the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab. The only thing that might prevent this from happening would be VA approval but we had to go ahead and book flights so we could be sure we could get them. Bless United and Delta and Alaska Airlines—all who have been so helpful in helping us cancel, rebook and schedule flights for not only us but Kaitie, too. 

The next two weeks are going to be very hectic so forgive me if I don’t post regularly. For my Anchorage friends, we don’t know if we’ll get to say goodbye in person because we’re still waiting on his therapy schedule here and between that and a lot of other appointments, we still have a lot to do to get everything ready for us to spend the winter in Georgia. If at all possible, we’ll try to make time, but please forgive us if we don’t. 

Thank you for all your prayers and support. They’ve gotten us this far and we are SO grateful!!
