Hello everyone. this is Forrest Allen writing my first blog post that i have written by myself with help from tami. i am typing this all by myself. I would like to tell you all about my weekend. this past friday, my brother Austin arrived from Hawaii for a visit. i got to ride in our van and surprised him at the airport. it was enjoyable to see him again at such a public place and i got out of our van and gave him a big hug. Austin has not been home since January, so it is good to have him here for a visit. that saturday was goldcup races i went and they were enjoyable and fun races. i saw lots of people i knew from other places it was fun to be there with austin and the rest of my family. my weekend nurse Alpha was there to help me with my memory stuff. he helps to keep me safe as well.
that sunday i went to my voice recital and did a show there it was lots of fun. I was one of the 28 performers for the show and i sang "go the distance" with my music therapist Tom. this song is a favorite to Austin it was very special that he was there to see me perform that song. here is a youtube link to a video of my performance of that song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFWMsPL6kLQ
i am looking forward to spending another few days with Austin before he leaves and goes to hawaii again. thanks to the people who are supporting me with my challenges and difficult tasks that i am facing and overcoming.
