Stanford – Settling

There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.”

 Thomas Aquinas

John Lee looks to be getting settled in the Stanford Children’s Hospital system. This morning his attending doctor told us that he did well last night. They are getting the results that they are looking to achieve. For now, we wait to hear from his attending doctor this afternoon.

Meanwhile, Amy and I checked into the Stanford Ronald McDonald House. We are grateful to have accommodations beyond what we expected. Our stay here is indefinite as it all depends on the care that John Lee will receive and the recovery thereof. 

My graduation is tomorrow. Obviously I will not be there. It is bitter-sweet. On one hand I completed my degree (finally), on the other I cannot walk. I have been looking forward to this moment for years. Last week I was hoping I could bring my two boys to see me walk. Somethings are more important than others, therefore John Lee’s health must take priority.

While we are at Stanford, we are admiring the streets and the surrounding features. We are thankful to live here, in this state, in this country.
