Get a Haircut!

The remainder of the day was good as well. Would have been nice if he could have had a nap (he is extremely tired), but you can’t win ‘em all.

Oxygen mask is still on and will be reassessed tomorrow. Talking takes a whole lotta effort. He really shouldn’t even be trying, but that’s my little chatterbox.

Richard went in to see him for the first time today since before his transplant. With great effort, Joey pulled off his oxygen mask, motioned for Richard to come closer, and hoarsely whispered: “Get a haircut”. What a sweetheart.

I don’t know where he could be coming from, do you?

    Sometimes when you focus on all the senseless things happening on this planet you just wince. Then you find a story all about hope, courage and love that puts everything back into perspective. Joey and Kirstin are telling such a story and it inspires me. Love from Lund.

    Today Joey looked tired, Kirstin looked like someone turned on a thousand watt bulb inside her and Richard…well…it was windy.
