I also got the opportunity to meet Kristen's mom and Kristen's sister Madison right before lunch. Kristen's mom brought over whoopie pies (yum, by the way) and then Mike came home for a quick lunch (which he'd made himself the day before). After lunch and some more playing, Cayman and Matthew went down for a nap and Kristen, offered to give me a massage. How could I refuse?? Kristen is a licensed massage therapist; and I received the best massage I've ever had. (truly!) Mike's mom came over for a bit and we had a nice visit. Before we knew it, Mike was home for the day and it was time to pack up and head to Adrian, MI. One of the reasons for my trip was to visit Cayman's naturopathic doctor for Matthew. As most of you know, who know me or read my blog, I tend to gravitate toward the natural spectrum of things. Kristen has been talking to me for a long time about naturopathic care and how much Cayman has benefited from it. I have looked around this area, and visited with a few naturopathic doctors, but have not found one that I am comfortable with. I've visited with Greg (Cayman's naturopath) on the phone and have felt at peace with his care. He is intelligent and the things he talked about made scientific sense to me . I wanted to give this a shot for Matthew. I was very impressed with his knowledge and things that we can do for Matthew. I will be excited to see if we will be able to see some measurable improvement for Matthew.
After our appointment, we went and had the most AMAZING sushi I've ever had. I even learned to eat with chopsticks! Then we were off to Detroit again. We had decided with my early flight out, it would be best to get a hotel and crash there so we could spend the maximum amount of time visiting (and it was supposed to also allow us to get a good nights sleep...but, that didn't happen...we slept for just over an hour!)
I had an absolutely amazing time. We were treated like royalty; I mean, really; great food, hospitality, a MASSAGE!, and a free chauffeur...it was absolutely amazing. And even if none of the previously mentioned had happened, I still would have had a awesome time. Kristen and Mike were the absolute complete picture of the Christian family. I am blessed to know them and be able to call them my friends!(Thanks again Mike and Kristen...I love you guys!)
Kristen was the photographer for the trip (I'm terrible at picture taking) and if you want to see the photographic story of our days; click here
