These Slippers are Made for Walking

The rest of Joey’s week has gone well. He had dialysis every day with the exception of today. There is still quite a bit of fluid to come off, but man is his upper body skinny (the fluid tends to sit on the lower half now because of gravity). It’s a good thing that he’s starting to get a bit of an appetite. Gotta start fattening him up for winter!

Last night he went on a short walk (to the elevators) without the walker for the first time since his second surgery! We are very happy about that. It is hard work for him, but he’s going for the gusto again.

    Dear Joey & Kirstin,

    Wow, I thought Joey looked really good in the picture!

    Wanted you to know that I have been wearing the blue CF elastic band which says “Give the Breath of Life”. It constantly reminds me to send positive thoughts your way.

    The bands can be purchased at the Mayfair mall for anyone living in Victoria. If other people want to wear them we could collectively send well wishes!
