Day +364: +365 Eve!!!
It's day +364 for Max...or, the eve of day +365...one year post-transplant! Wow! In some senses, it's hard to believe it's been that long but, in another sense, it seems like forever that we've been living this "new life". Max is doing very well. We enjoyed a fabulous weekend celebrating Aunt Sarah and Uncle Ryan's wedding and have been catching up on rest the past few days. The wedding was absolutely beautiful and perfect. The kids all did an outstanding job in the wedding and had a ball celebrating at the reception. I don't think it could have gone any better, in my mind. Sarah & Ryan did a wonderful job planning everything and it made for a great celebration of their union. There are tons of great pictures loaded up to the following site: http://gallery.me.com/ryanmcgo and a super fun video of a dance the boys did to honor Sarah & Ryan at the following You Tube link: http://www.youtube.com/user/kmmaemeyer?feature=mhw4#p/a/u/0/ntBqIxCibZk Hope you enjoy them all! We certainly enjoyed celebrating together as a family.
As for tomorrow, we have some more fun planned for the family. I have made a special video of Max's journey the past 15+ months and we have some "365" games planned. I'm sure it will be an emotional and fun celebration for all of us.
We are definitely counting our blessings as we reach day +365 tomorrow with Max. It has been quite a miraculous journey so far and we pray every day that it continues to go as well for him as it has thus far. We know the road ahead may still be bumpy and that things will probably never be as they once were for all of us but, we are grateful for what we have learned on this journey so far and know that it will forever shape and enhance all of our lives.
I'm going to keep things short today - LOTS to do to get ready to celebrate tomorrow! I promise to write again soon and fill you all in on the fun around here. Also, I'm finalizing dates for the bigger parties to celebrate Max's progress this summer with all of you so, be sure to check back soon. We would LOVE to see all of you and have the chance to thank you for all your continued support and love.
Peace and love,
Kristi (and Matt, Max, Alex, Ellee and Spud)
