A friend of mine in an e-mail asked me how Sam was doing. I sent her a picture and said that I thought that Sam was 'riding a wave' and was doing okay. Being an avid surfer, our friend responded back that she was so glad that Sam was 'going off' and explained that this is a surfing term used to describe a very good, consistent surfer who is surfing particularly well. I liked it, and thought it fit Sam perfectly; he's riding the wave pretty well right now! Even though the left side of his face is swollen, and he's lost the use of his left eye, Sam seems to be comfortable and not having any pain. We're continuing to let him set the pace of this part of the journey. He's up to going for walks with us, and is enjoying the bumper crop of blackberries that we've had every day this week.

THANK YOU for stopping for a moment to read ours!
