Well folks. I’m at Manchester Airport about to enjoy some breakfast before I fly the pond again. Lovely lady from Virgin has given me a seat with lots of room to rest. I’m hoping that Audrey or Deborah will be able to set Will up so he can post some journals. I’ll be back in touch when I arrive x
I've just landed in Manchester so it's a very quick, bleary-eyed update on the short time I had with Will yesterday before I headed off to Atlanta airport. We both nearly slept in after our weekend excursion but dragged ourselves to meet Cliff (Will's driver) on time. Will had a speech therapy session where he discussed his outstanding freshman year work that he's finishing off. It's all about giving him the tools to tackle academic work following his injuries. He then had an outdoor physical therapy session in the yard. He shot a few hoops with some other Pathways patients. It was then my time to say goodbye and head off home. It's been another eye-opening week for me. It's amazed me how much he's progressed since I was last here. The level of care has been astounding and everyone we've met have been friendly, helpful and just...really nice 🙂 Will's dad was landing as I was leaving and Amanda is landing tomorrow, then, hopefully, they're all flying home next week 🤞 Last thing I heard from Will was that he was getting his "dog fix" on the Beltline last night!!
After a good sleep and another great Audrey breakfast this morning, we all trooped off to the Borchers' church in Helen, where Will gave a 'testimony' of the ordeal he's been through and gave thanks for all the prayers and thoughts from everyone. Some lovely people, who Will hasn't even met, have had him in their thoughts, and for that, we're all grateful. Thank you x On the way back to Atlanta, we stopped by Audrey's folks house and then called in at the mall at Lawrenceville before saying goodbye to Scott, Audrey, Cole, Kale and Ian. I'm flying home tomorrow, so it was a sad moment to say goodbye to such an amazing family that have treated Will like one of their own. They didn't have to go to the lengths that they have, but we're so grateful they did. I hope I get to see them again. Thanks guys ♥️
