Thanksgiving Realized


Once again I find myself at a loss for words. Reflecting on the last few weeks it seemed that Laura was faced with insurmountable odds of having a transplant come through. Yet it happened, and to the family that made the sacrifice so that she might have a 2nd chance saying thank-you on this day especially hardly seems enough.

Laura is still very weak, and we are looking at a very long recovery. But her new liver is working and her wounds healing. The pain medication tends to send her to the moon and then back for a brief check-in. She is catching up from a struggle that began in July and it will take time. It is still about baby steps for awhile but she is moving in the right direction.

All the best to so many that have kept Laura close in thought and to her posse (her word!) of friends here in Minneapolis that have done so much.

And yes the January 17th Benefit Big News...The Suicide Commandos have committed their support and will make a rare appearance along with the Bush Tetras and Skoal Kodiac. What a celebration it will be. Nick & Eddie's is the venue and please continue to check back for updates.
