What a great day! I woke up feeling a lot better than I have been, but I don't think it would have mattered much. I was so looking forward to going home for the day I would have gone no matter what. We started with the home evaluation, and that went well with no surprises. The doorways in the new apartment building are all plenty wide enough, the bathroom and kitchen are huge, and there is tons of room to wheel around in. All we really have to worry about are rails for the tub and some other small bathroom details.

Debbie and I barbecued hot dogs for lunch, a nice change from the hospital food. After lunch we explored a bit, checking out the complex, and then we just hung out by the pool for a while. The building is really nice with lots of amenities, and the apartment is pretty much perfect. I can't wait to go back now!


  1. Stoked that you got a taste of the new place!
    I'll bring the Tri-Tip next time.


  2. Man, there is nothin' like going home!
    Love and all that,

  3. Carne asada! That's what you need to season that grill.

    Congrats, Andrew. This is a special moment.

  4. ...that's wonderful - congrats, Andrew!

    Looks like a nice place, and you'll be living there soon I'm sure - keep up the great work!

    BTW - loved the slide show - that Peter Gabriel live video is one of our faves - and the song perfectly chosen - nice job, Deb...

  5. A picture is worth a thousand words, and that smile on your face says it all!!! What a great day. Can't wait to join you for a BBQ at the new abode VERY SOON!
    That slide show was AWESOME - Great job Deb. You are a Goddess.
    With love and hugs,

  6. Wow, congrats on going home. That stand-up exoskeleton thing looks pretty cool.

  7. Wow! Looks like a great place! I'm jealous of that BBQ as well. Congrats to both of you!

    Agreed, the slideshow was awesome, Deb. Great job!

    You'll be home sooner than you think, Andrew.


  8. Andrew...

    So great to see your progress...again, such an inspiration to me. Looking forward to seeing you at work soon...

    Happy Easter!

  9. Thank you Debbie for sharing this special day with us in such a meaningful way. Andrew, the 'beginning' is very near for you now.

  10. And the Oscar for best slide show ever goes to Deb Trevitt.

    P.S. I'm glad the guys from work couln't see me when i was watching it.

  11. Trev,

    Glad to see your progressing positively! I was just looking at the SV picture. I still have that article. The first time I read it was in 9th grade and I remember getting all excited because I wanted to get an SV and race at Road Atlanta. Now, I live 18 miles away from Road ATL and I have the opportunity to race my ZX6R there frequently. That article was a good bit of motivation for me! Anyway, keep your head up!

  12. I don't know how I missed the information about your wreck but I did want to say I wish you all the best - you, & Mrs. Trevitt - my husband Mike & I have been reading SPORTBIKE for years & I originally got the subscription for your column. We've had a very busy 2009 so I'm sorry my well-wishes did not come sooner, but they are heart-felt. Prayers for a full recovery!


  13. Oops, sorry Trev - I meant SPORTRIDER magazine ... !


  14. I'm with Marty on this one. Great slideshow, Deb!

    Congrats to the both of you. The new place (what little I can see in the pics anyway) looks great. Can't wait for the housewarming party! I'll make some homemade guacamole for the occasion. :D
