Trying to find balance. With a spinal cord injury just trying to find a balance in your everyday life can be a challenge.
As you overcome one challenge another one pops up. Currently David is dealing with a sore on his back. Most likely a result of the weight loss and having just bone on skin. To keep his weight off of the spot he is spending most of his time laying on his side in bed. Not much fun but it has to be done.
He does have something to look forward to. His Aunt Kristen, who lives in Rhode Island, and his Aunt Lisa, who lives in Massachusetts, are coming up for a visit this Sunday. Looks like he has them taking him out to lunch.
This Saturday David’s mom will be singing with the Chamber Singers of Keene at St. James Episcopal Church. Barbara has a very good voice and enjoys singing a lot. With the demands of caring for David she has not had a lot of time to get out and sing with her friends. If you are in the area stop in to hear the performance. It starts at 7pm.
David needs 24/7 care.
Currently, through Granite State Independent living, David has an opening for a caregiver. The position pays $10 hour. Currently he has about 25 hours a week available for a person that is looking for part time day work. Hours are flexible. Times can be setup for Monday through Sunday. Good position for a student, or someone looking to earn extra money. Great benefits you get to hangout and work with David.

I have taken the last two days off from work to be with my family. Today I will be taking David for a doctors visit. Will keep you posted.
Thank you all for your support and prayers.
David’s Dad Paul
