Catching up

Karina's new bed

After working through the long holiday weekend, Tuesday was a day for catching up.

It was supposed to be the day I would have officially joined the Patient Safety and Quality Committee at Florida Hospital for Children, but the meeting was canceled at the last minute, so it was a free day for Paige, J.P. and I.

It was really the first time since team training at Canine Companions for Independence and the resulting hospitalizations that we actually went out as a family. We had lunch out and made a Target run.

I also got in a 5K run and caught up on bills.

Because we don’t have public access privileges, Karina had to stay home. We took a nice 30-minute walk during the afternoon, and she got her teeth brushed, ears cleaned, eyes wiped and a good brushing.

We crated her again Tuesday night as we celebrated the 50th birthday of our good friend, Don Hettenbach.

After our dinner, we went to Costco and got a nice bed for Karina to use in our family room. We also went to PetSmart for a crate for her since we’re still borrowing our current one from Canine Companions.

There is good news: We made the run To PetSmart because we’re now scheduled to complete our Team Training at Canine Companions next Monday and Tuesday. We’ll hopefully then be able to take Karina in public with us and go over the lectures and commands we missed during the second week of training.

J.P. is also set to resume his therapy appointments now that he’s no longer on antibiotics from the stomach bug. He should also get his new wheelchair this week.

It should be a busy week ahead — hopefully a lot of good things to come. Stay tuned for updates here throughout the week.
