Day 3650, 10 Years or a New Beginning
Tuesday, March 26, 2013
Over the last years I have marked this day in many ways. Always reflecting on the moments leading up to, the desperate moments of, and the heart wrenching moments after the crash. It has been spent seeking out our saviors and communicating with those so closely connected to those horrific and forever embedded moments. And while we are always moving forward in Tori's rehabilitation and looking ahead to the next opportunity for improvement, I realize I have kept my foot in the threshold to the past-not allowing the door to close.
Today marked a change and a new momentum. And it started of all places – in close proximity to a focal point of when it all began.
We had the opportunity to tour the Norman Prince Neurosciences Institute at Rhode Island Hospital today and with it, an extensive meeting with its Director, Dr. Rees Cosgrove. Sitting high above the streets of Providence and glancing out of the corner office windows I could see the expansive web of over and underpasses, bridges and highways as they intersect points north, south, east and west. The connectors if you would – all allowing us to reach our destinations. The next 30 minutes brought a renewed sense of being. It was as if all of my neurotransmitters were starting to fire.
Following our visit the rest of the day was spent just as it should. All of us together as a family. The past will always be a part of us. In the present we relish in the unconditional love of family and the wonderful support of friends, old and new. And the future, although still so uncertain – looks brighter.

3650 days, 10 years, - or, is this a new beginning?
We are at the dawn of discovery: the brink of developments. I for one needed to be recharged. There’s lots of work ahead…”’cause we ain’t done yet” – not by a long shot.
