I did not expect my initial blog posting to be spread around this wonderfully supportive community, but now that I am in the mix I may as well provide you all with an update.
Chris and James MacKenzie are on the road to recovery. The Razza’s were able to visit with James yesterday, and Chris was responsive to his sister’s loving touch.
I want to encourage everyone to stay positive. Please consider buying a bracelet or donating to the family, you can do this here: http://www.thebravest.com/mackenzietwins.html
FYI: I am not a journalist or an expert, I am a concerned friend. The only thing that I know for sure is that I am not sure of anything. So please: stay positive, assume the best, and keep praying.
did you guys know that james is a professional alligator wrangler?
chris takes a different approach!
An aside: I had the pleasure of teaching surf camp down at second beach when these two were catching their first waves. I consider Tabby and Blair to be a set of second parents. (they get it!!) And Abigail, she is one of the most caring and intelligent girls you will ever meet (Bay View girls tend to be pretty awesome, wink wink). And dont even get me started on boys who go to Bishop Hendricken, I fell in love (twice) at every BV/Hendricken mixer.
I may complain when Chris and James paddle out in the line-up, but it is usually because I know my wave count will be drastically decreased for the remainder of my session. Again, I love you guys. We all love you. stay strong. xo
