Help Kevin Breathe!

Kevin’s life took a dramatic change 7 years ago, when his difficulties with breathing were diagnosed as COPD and emphysema. As his condition worsened, Kevin had no choice but to give up his life long career as a carpenter. Through this experience, Kevin has learned to appreciate even the smallest pleasures. His fondest moments are those enjoyed with family. He especially cherishes the time spent with his two children and six grandchildren who fill him with such happiness – they are truly the light of his life!

October 6,2017. Discharge Day!

It seemed to take all day for our med issues to be resolved. The shipment showed up at the hospital around nine. We were finally discharged just before 11:00pm made it to the hotel around 11:30 pm. Exhausted. But excited.

How poignant that Columbus Day weekend would be when we begin our journey into this brave new world.

They are planning to discharge Kevin tomorrow. This is both exciting and overwhelming. We will be staying in Boston for a month to be close to the hospital.

This is a most exciting and eventful journey. We look forward to getting back to "real life" and finding out what our new "normal" is.
