As you are reading this we are probably somewhere on the road between Washington and California! Road trip it is to the VA in Palo Alto.
Ben was transferred here about 7 months post injury and we stayed for about 7 months! It seems like forever ago but at the same time yesterday! Lots of good and miracles came out of that 7 month stay!

We should be there for about 2 weeks for Ben to get an extensive evaluation done. He will have a complete eval done of where he is at and where we would like him to be. I have a list of things that need to be addressed and taken care of before we leave to come home. This list is not small and the items on the list are both for the physical of Bens needs and just some items that need to be discussed and taken care of.

Ben will be inpatient (starting this Monday) the whole 2 weeks and me in a hotel. Right now there are no rooms available at the Fisher House so please pray one opens up so I can be closer to Ben! Also pray for Ben because as you know he hates anything to do with hospitals or clinics etc. I will be with him during the day and so it will be just at night that he is on his own (thank goodness when he is asleep not much bothers him) but he should be ok.

Please also pray that our issues get addressed and well. It has been very frustrating to work with the VA here so that is why we are going down. Pray that the therapists and doctors have good insight into what is going on with Ben and that it gives him the opportunity to progress!

I will not be taking my computer so I may not be able to post while we are gone. If they still have the public computer I may be able to hop on there. I will have my phone and hopefully be posting to our "Prayers for Ben" Facebook page! If you find it and "like" it you can follow us there!
Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support!
PS...the PO Box listed on this site is no longer active. When we get home I plan to set up another one. I love you all but for safety reasons we will not be posting our home address! :)
