ROBB WALKED TODAY
Three days after arriving at CPMC, and ten days after the accident, Robb walked for the first time! He got a pair of fuzzy orthopedic boots (that look like what might happen if Jean-Paul Gauthier designed Uggs) which allow him to walk without damaging his feet, and today during physical therapy, Robb walked while holding onto the parallel bars.
I am beside myself with joy.
Robb's family finally got to see him at CPMC. He had a very busy day at therapy, so we came late in the afternoon. I showed them around Berkeley Rep, we drove up Skyline Drive, and we had a lovely Thai lunch. Thank you to Andrew, who picked them up at the airport last night. Thank you Madelyn and Mimosa and Christopher and everyone else who got them settled into their housing.
Thank you to everyone at University of California, Berkeley for all the wonderful treats and diversions. Thanks to Gina and Robert for the awesome care package. Thanks to a certain beacon of light, who has been with us throughout every step of the way. I know you're getting embarassed by my thanking you all the time, but I need to do it.
Thank you to all the letterboxers and muralist and scenic artists who hardly know Robb, but who send cards and emails and healing wishes.
