It was a nice quiet Easter at Kessler. Eric was visiting cousins in Arizona for spring break so Scott, Neil, and I spent the day together. After a morning visit from Glen, Neil had a little Easter egg hunt around his room (not unlike one of his OT activities). He got a few hats in his Easter basket (anticipating several weeks of baldness with a really wicked scar after his bone flap replacement surgery). Then we all enjoyed a lovely dinner prepared by yours truly the day before in anticipation of this day. Thanks to a dear friend, we watched an inspiring video about the Savior's life with some beautiful photography. After Scott left for the airport to pick Eric up, Neil and I napped, did a little cognitive practice, then read some scriptures together. Scott brought Eric back to the hospital directly from the airport so we could have a little reunion and a family prayer. We have so much to be thankful for. It was a different kind of Easter for us, but somehow, it felt very appropriate.
