For those of you who won't get to see Kent in the next few days we have a couple of Kent quotes. His short term memory causes him to repeat things over and over and over and over. Here is a list of things that he says repetitively.
- "________, you don't even know."
- "I have to pee so much, you don't even know. I'm like a 100 year old man."
- "I'm going to go crazy."
- "I look retarded."
- "This sucks so bad, you have no idea."
- "I'm such a retard, I ran into my friend on my dirt bike."
- "This is ridiculous."
- "I want soup."
- Did I mention "You don't even know"?
- "If somebody asks me about my eye I'm going to kill them . . . I swear."
- "I shouldn't ride my dirt bike but I probably will."
The support has been overwhelming and it is really touching how many people have been pulling for him. Ben and I were at the store the other night and while we were in line I heard someone say, "So is Kent still coming home on Friday?" It was his friend Riley and his wife Kendra. Then this morning I got a text message from my boss saying, "I'm sitting with someone you were with last night. She was visiting your brother." We knew he had a lot of friend but this is ridiculous! We put the counter on the blog on the September 9th and in 13 days we has had 4128 hits on his blog, 1504 different IP addresses. That's not even counting how many of you logged on in the first week.
We are so happy to have him home even if we do hear the same thing over and over. The next couple of weeks will be a challenge for him because he is "so freakin' bored, you don't even know." We are so lucky to have him here with us and we are so grateful that his injuries aren't any more serious. It's been an emotional ride for all of us and we look forward to helping Kent continue on his road to recovery.
Thanks again for all of your support!
