Update - April 3rd

One great thank you to the Oakland Youth Chorus for the fantastic benefit show at the First Unitarian Church in Oakland. This was Chris' first time out to a performance and we had relatives visiting from LA who joined us for the show. Chris really enjoyed being out and hearing music. When he saw his former teacher Michelle and her great group he was really excited. All the groups were great and Chris had a chance to meet many of them afterwards. Thanks to everyone who attended.

We want to thank Carol Alban for putting together a fantastic show At Yoshi's Jazz Club in Oakland. Two shows with great line ups! Chris stayed well into the second show and really had a great time.

Since being home we continue to be busy in a new way with medical and therapy appointments. During the various spring breaks we had company from Los Angeles and San Diego and enjoyed our visitors. Chris starts outpatient therapy appointments and coach Tapscott from the Downtown Oakland YMCA is working with Chris.

Today Chris visited school for a pizza birthday party lunch. Yeah it was great to see everyone.
