Tj Klune updated his status: “I’m at home again for a few days. I’m working Mon, Tues, and Wed now, spending the rest of the week in Richmond. I try to use this time to sleep as much as possible, but it can be hard at times.
After I posted the picture yesterday, Eric woke up and was more alert and awake than he’s ever been. If it wasn’t for the fact of the traech tube in his throat and him having to mouth his words, it would have been almost normal. We got to talk, and actually have a clear and concise conversation. He knows the work ahead, and that it’s not going to be easy. We set goals for him. He wants to be out of the respiratory hospital by February first. He wants to be out of the rehab hospital by March 7th. Realistic? Maybe. Maybe not. I don’t know what’s going to happen. But after we set those dates, he looked at me and said “I can do it.”
I said, “I know you can.”
Then he said, “I need you to have faith in me.”
I told him I do. Completely. “Because of November 8th.”
That’s the other date we’re working toward. That’s the day we’re getting married.
So, we have a plan. Now we just have to do it.
Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go.”
