Hi All! We've extended the deadline on our fundraiser, as so many of you advised us to do, pending upcoming in-town fundraisers for Tomo (at which there may even be stations from which you can donate!).
Tomo is doing well: his doctors all agree that he is a medical miracle, and will make a full recovery. His youth, strength, health, and amazing attitude are all working in his favor. Acupuncture sessions are helping to make the pain in his hands more bearable, and his bones and skin are healing well. With the money donated thus far, we have enough to cover his first major surgery step since the accident: what his oral maxillofacial surgeon calls "organizing his teeth."
Thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts, for your ongoing support. Whenever we are having a blue moment, coming here to read your kind words and witness your generosity lifts us up, and gives us faith that everything will work out. The greatest blessing in all of this is realizing how truly loved we are. Gracias. Arigato.
