The love, support and generosity of our family, friends and workplaces keeps coming at us at such a pace we cannot keep up with the thank you's!
I was sad to miss the CMHA National Conference as I am no longer able to work and missed a presentation that I was meant to give yesterday on Art Therapy with Concurrent Disorders. I was very lucky that my brother was able to visit me and distract me from my complete change in lifestyle!
Fall is my favourite time of year and I had the opportunity to appreciate every moment of it with my brother Keith as we hiked around Pink Lake in Gatineau Park. Some of the stairs and trails were a little daunting but with the strong arm of my brother and a gentle pace I was able to complete the loop which just made me so happy that I can still hike! The weather was gorgeous and views breathtaking, we stopped for a picnic at a lookout viewing the Ottawa River and also drove around Meech Lake. We then went to pick up the new lease so Keith had an opportunity to see our new apartment and had a much needed rest going to the movies for a showing of Captain Phillips starring Tom Hanks (intense!!!).
Had a call from the ALS Society of Canada and the regional director is coming by for a home visit on Monday to let us know about some of their services. I very much appreciate that it is a home visit due to the number of upcoming Dr's visits in the next 2 weeks before Italy.
Wonderful that Travis's work has approved our trip so our To-Do list has grown to booking and planning the Italy trip this weekend! So so excited as we have a beautiful Villa in Tuscany booked where our amazing friends Heather & Andy will be joining us for a week!
We are excited to see Brittany & Sean this weekend Sean is a property appraiser and has offered his services on giving us advice for selling our joint thanks guys!
Good Luck to Heather, Andy & Clem who are walking to defeat ALS on Sunday.
