Holli is in Nashville!

It was a very long and tiring day for Holli but she is such a trooper. She had been sitting up in either a wheelchair or airline seat since 7:30 this morning CA time until 9:00 this evening TN time. Holli could not hold her head up for very long but the flight nurse, Diane Risoti, was so good with Holli and used rolled up blankets, pillow and towels to make Holli comfortable. She had to be transfered from one wheelchair to another so many times that I lost count but Diane, the flight nurse , was able to do it without any problems. When we got off the plane we were met by my daughter, Heather, and two of my jazzercise friends, Karen and Darlene. It was a tearful reunion. Then there was Matt who is a dear friend of Holli's waiting outside by the van that was picking us up. I was so thrilled to see him. He has been like a brother to Holli since high school. Holli is now at her new facility. We stayed with her until she had her sleeping pill and was sound asleep. It was so very hard for me to leave her tonight. This is the first time I have left her alone. I left in tears. It will be adjustment for the both of us.

We are so glad and thankful you are home and are so proud of you. You have been such an example of God's unbounding love for us through your love and devotion that you have shown to your child. You will never know how many lives you have touched. I just know our Father is looking at you and saying "well done, my child" Thank you for being such a good steward..... I love you!
