We're packing our bags . . .

We're packing our bags....wish us luck!!
On the first of November I'm going on my annual trip with my sister....for some R&R.
And for a dose of creativity...enough to get me through for at least a year!!
Paul will be going to the Chelsea at Montville.
He will be there from the 1st of November til the 17th of November.

If anyone is inclined to drop him a is the address:

Chelsea at Montville
Attention: Paul Zimmerman room# A 123
165 Changebridge Road
Montville, NJ 07045

We've lined up Physical Therapy and Speech Therapy sessions.
Visited the Doctor to get prescriptions and let him know the details of Paul's stay.
We're making all of Paul's menu selections ahead of time.
The NY Times is being delivered....friends are all chipping in.
I've lined up Fredy to stay at the house with Jac.
Paul's frig will be loaded with extras and he'll have photos and workbooks....
I feel as if I'm getting a dorm room put together!!
I've packing everything in the house that isn't nailed down.

He's been great about taking a break!
It's me that is as nervous as hell!!
I do have to say that Mary Beth and Lorraine from the Chelsea have been heaven sent!
We have spent hours with them....going over every little detail so that Paul is comfortable and safe.
They've fallen in love with him!
His spirit and drive are so evident that it is contagious!

Now....if everyone will send a prayer and a wish for a safe trip for both of us....
we'll be on our way!!

ps...and pray like hell that someone lines up his

PSS...Tomorrow is Paul's Birthday...the 23rd!
Shhh...he hates to celebrate....but I found an Amarone....he won't mind that much!!
