The Paterson’s are Moving Forward

As Nicolas continues to learn how to sit and now stand with muscles he retrains everyday, we move forward to the next steps of his rehabilation.

These weeks in August have taken Nic sailing, many trips with friends and family to Shoeless Joe’s Restaurant and new plans for our future.  We have had Spud, Aunt Donna and a very special visit from Jake, our mini Nic. Thank you Auntie Patricia for the apple crisp!
And a special thanks to his friends from home that surprise him with visits just when he needs them most.  He has made many friends at Lyndhurst and like life happens, they pass in and out of our lives, moving forward.

On September 17th Nic will be moving to  his own Apartment.  At his apartment at the Bellwoods Center he will continue his rehab at Lyndhurst 2-3 times a week, and he will start his schooling, along with anything else we need to do that we don’t know about yet. Apparently the colour of the walls will be black. Trying to change his mind.

I was told by my son a few weeks ago that it was time to stop taking Mom to School.  So I have given him his space, and started working and forging forward with making new memories for our family. I have a special surprise for my son…No I can’t tell you all until I tell him 🙂  Let’s just say you won’t always have to go to Toronto to see Nic in the near future. So excited!!

This morning I was at a meeting with the kind and generous people from the Bracebridge Muskoka Lakes Rotary Club. They have helped our family in the darkest of times, and I am humbled to have been asked to speak this morning. I wish I had the time to join this club and help others like they do. I will one day.

The last of the big news is my oldest son Mitchell will be doing something he has wanted to do for a very long time. He will be leaving for Asia on Thursday to experience life. After all that we have been through, and as much as both Nic and I don’t want him to go, I think its time for him… 🙁  Be safe my little man.
