Conor Recovery ... For Dad ... Means Walking On The Trail Again

We have been very happy with the excellent care Conor received after his adverse drug reaction. Everyone involved, from our family doctor who saw us very quickly after our concerns arose, immediately advised cutting back on Conor's meds and was at the ICU and pediatric wards as part of his treatment team to the doctors, nurses, technicians, physiotherapists and all staff at the emergency, ICU and pediatric ward teams. All were terrific in ensuring Conor's recovery. Everybody was top notch and we are grateful for their service to our son. 

Each day of progress brought fresh signs and while some work remains overall his progress has been great. This afternoon he and I walked the trail to the Superstore for an OJ treat and return home. The Run Jump Fly boy has not returned ... yet ... but Conor kept a brisk walking pace and Dad was very hard pressed to keep up ... another great sign of Conor's recovery progress.

In the top picture below the white building with yellow trim in the center of the photo is the hospital, the DECH, where Conor was treated a few weeks ago. 
 A long time ago in a universe far, far away.

It is so nice to see him hitting the trails again, in his case...slow and steady wins his recovery race Dawn

Dad still has a hard time keeping up with Conor's "slow and steady".

Look forward to eventual return of the Run Jump Fly Boy.

I love these pictures, but I can see the effect it has had on him.

I chose here as a less visible spot to apologize for bringing up Conor on the page I did. It seemed like a good idea at the time. I've got to get off this soapbox.

Thank you for never changing your battle cry for the most vulnerable.I said my piece there and I'll never do it again.

No apologies necessary.
