A long way to goPublished 3:24pm Saturday, October 19, 2013
Due to some pressing family matters, I didn’t write a story last week and will be succinct this week also.
My middle child, Sergeant First Class Kimberly Walker had injured her neck in Afghanistan and two discs had to be replaced. That was a while ago and most do know her story.
I have a sweet letter from the folks whose son she brought home to Washington asking about her, but I’m holding off answering until she is better. The discs didn’t take, and two new operations were scheduled for my Kim where four discs will be placed and bone marrow from her hip will be used.
Elaine has been with her these past few weeks, and I have been holding the fort while keeping in contact daily.
My Bark in the Park fundraiser fell far short of last year’s amount. Still, the few that came were more than generous, and much fun was had by all.
Little Bear (now Mojo) has had two trips upstate where extensive new tests were done. He is now four months old. He’s back at his foster home with Danielle, having a ball while we treat a bladder infection.
Besides all his other problems, Mojo has only one kidney and several operations must be done to fix his internal problems.
Mojo is also heavy on my mind as we figure out what to do and how to do it.
Other cases are still being handled, but in the meantime, please bear with me and I’ll do my best to catch up.
Thanks so much for being there, and thanks for listening.
