Edgefest 17

We went to 102.1's Edgefest 17 on Sunday. I went with Billy, his brother Daniel, and his gf. It was fun but cold with a strong wind. We saw Miser, Chevelle, Finger Eleven, Filter, and Seether.

My Aunt Becky came in town!

My Aunt Becky (mom's sister) and her boyfriend Hobbdog came up from La Grange, Tx (near Austin) and spent the weekend with us. On saturday, we all went to my Uncle Marty's in Mesquite for a fish fry. I got to see all my fam again... we never turn down his food either. It was good to see everyone.

The trip went really well. We had no problems or anything. The flights are just sooo long and then theres the 3 hour lay over. I didn't sleep at all on the way home. When we went to the DFW baggage claim, there was Billy with a huge smile and my DAd wAS so happy! Its the best feeling ever. We got in wednesday night at about 9 pm. All I can say is it feels so good to be home.

Trip 4 Update #2

We are soooooooooo ready to leave! Omg for real. I need some normal food. I'm going crazy. Atleast I have Edgefest to look fwd to April 27.

So we haven't been doing much; just been doing therapy and getting massages everyday. My therapists only understand certain words so we've been messing with them... actually everyone else too. They fall for things so easily. Everyone here drinks vodka everyday all day... its funny. I wish I could really explain this clinic and Russia but it is all just so unexplainable. I honestly don't know where to begin.

Saturday, we went to the Hard Rock Cafe; ate some cheeseburgers and french fries. The burgers and all the food here would be good if they would just season it! Everything is so bland. Once you go into the city, it is really cool and different. Everyone is so fashioned in every way, and the buildings are just so unique and detailed.

I got my second injection yesterday; it went well. Wow my doctor told me he wanted to perform procedure execution yesterday. I said execution means death... He doesn't really speak well english. Well we are coming home tomorrow; I'm so excited! Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers - T xo

Russia Trip 4

April 4 - 16

So we’re in Russia... freakin Russia... Mom and Tacha came this time. We arrived saturday. The flights went so well; everything worked out. They had this new option where there was a tv screen on the seat in front of you and you could choose your own movies, tv shows, music, games... it was awesome. I watched juno, national treasure 2, and house!

We went to the market yesterday... didn’t see one smile but that’s no surprise. The doctors came in today and he hit my knees with something to check the reactions and the nerves in my left thigh reacted and made my thigh tighten up and flicker. That definitely didn’t happen last time.

I got a double dose injection tuesday, which went well. I had a headache in the night and the next morning however which is a side effect. My therapy has been different this trip. I've been getting on a bicycle that uses a motor to move my legs and I have been getting in a standing frame working on balancing. I had some weird test done yeserday by a man that honestly looks jussst like Mr. Bean. It was odd. I pointed to him and saiid Mr. Bean? And he said "No, ...Roland!" Omg it was sooooo funny. I'm pretty tired of the food already seriously! Plz keep praying 4 us! :)
