One more Bit of News…

Mike called!!!

Last night… around 6. David put him on speaker phone…

He called to say ‘thank you’ for everything, and that he was in a lot of pain (understandably).  He let us know that his parents would be moving down to Baltimore and living in his apartment- and Jenn would be moving in with her grandmother as she goes through treatment for pancreatic cancer. He told us he ate a pork chop, and that “tomorrow he would be starting his rejuvenation period” when what he meant to say was rehabilitation. As Emily pointed out, rejuvenation was such a joyful (though accidental) choice of words. He was heavily medicated, because he had an incredibly painful surgery that morning to repair his broken Knee-cap and MCL that he severed. Someone must have come in the room (a doctor maybe?) and he had to go.  It was a lovely conversation.

After seeing the photo of him, and then getting the phone call… my heart is at ease, and I know that he’ll be alright. I saw a photo of him right after the accident- attached to a ventilator, in a coma, and that’s the only image I had in my head. I feel better now- even though the next few months are going to be really hard, i know that he’ll be alright.
