More ramblings from Joel

This was done early in the morning--- Just a delayed wife posting it...

Wife--So Joel has continued to make progress every day. He is a bit awake around umm... 4AM! I think he wants to go to bootcamp... He was ensuring my dad remembered all his gear this morning! HA. Well to say the least I did sleep some. I hop between Evey's Bed and Joel's Bed depending on how either are doing. I guess I get around.

HAHA!! so Joel just flipped through the music tv stations and it landed on 90s... Evey loudly proclaims that is Mommy music... not mine! Apparently anything 80s or 90s is my music now... hmmm

Today there is a lot to get taken care of, Mark will help with Joel for a few hours. Joel is getting along well but is thankful Mark is similar size, it makes him feel safe. Me too. Evey is off to preschool. Phone calls are being made...

So when Joel woke up at 4 am he decided he wanted to blog. This may have been because i wanted to sleep and not talk.. oh well.. ha! Here it is:

More ramblings from the guy that just had brain surgery.

 I just want to say that I don't think I have a any special authority, or wisdom but since Valentines Day is coming up I want everyone to re-evaluate what is really important in your life.

 I don't why it took something being taken out of my head for me to realize this, but the most important thing in the world to me is my wife and then my daughter, then my family, and then my friends in that order!

 I am so blessed by all of them. and they or more important then any job, money, or anything, The Beatles had it right. all you need is love!! 

Wow I must be on drugs. (Wife says I am not)  but I'm serious I love my wife and she is the most important thing in the world to me! After family and friends is  the next important thing is -- community, lets all support  local businesses.

I love the group Brundage Bootcamp firstly, because I believe it saved my life by helping find what was wrong with me in the first place. The fact that he brings together so many wonderful people helping each other is pretty great!

 I also want to say thankyou to all the firefighters out there that do such a wonderful job helping people!
(Especially the medics who brought me in)

 Anyways love you all!

 Peace and love!--Joel
