On the morning of July eleventh, Brian Campbell and the ALS society of manitoba organised a bit of a celebration for Downey and I. They invited our friends, family, media, supporters and politicians. It was a great success and I felt a little odd having such a fuss kicked up for me. However, I enjoyed it incredibly.
After the celebration I returned home and enjoyed some time with Rose. My parents were anxious to spend time with me as well so I went and visited with them. I ended my day rather early. it was the first time I could sleep in my own bed for a while. As I clutched my Teddy bear Zeddy, and as my dog Ozzy licked my face, I drifted off to sleep.
