Snowy Day at Craig

30 Dec

The walk this morning from my apartment to Joel’s room was eerily beautiful. Everything outside is blanketed with sticky, white snow. The streets are empty and many of the Craig staff never made it home last night (they slept in the gym).

At lunch, after a challenging two hours of stretching and cruising the hallways, we walked outside on the patio. This was only the second time since the accident (except in transport) he’s been outside. The cool air felt great in our lungs.

Later, Joel tried on his new Broncos winter cap (Thank you Dowds!) when he was chilled after he got his first shower.

A daily routine here at Craig is beginning to emerge, which is a pleasant change from the chaos of the past three weeks.

Much love to all,
Erika

    Hey Joel,
    Your Broncos cap is an interesting contrast to the rainbow velcro. You and Erika look so cute together. Oh, the power of love. -sigh-

    I got to find the right Texas beanie. Maybe one with a little Amarillo love on it. You would be the hit of Craig! I’ll see you soon!

    Wow, the snow looks amazing. It’s must have really come down last night. I like the hat too. Also, thankyou Erika for taking all these great pictures. I really look forward to the updates and progress.

    Erika & Joel – really feel connected thanks to blog & photos. All of the TX/Cols contingent are thinking of you. Know you’ll have some difficult months ahead, but confident you both will prevail.

    Love, Cheryl

    Dear Joel and Erika,

    Having seen you two together over Christmas and now in the pictures at Craig makes me believe that the power of your love can be magical in the healing process. Your strength together is a beautiful thing to witness. God bless you both.
