We are all coming home Friday!!!!!

It’s been a busy week, G is doing his regular therapy sessions, getting assessed on the amazing improvements he’s made over the last 5 weeks, getting prepared for changes when he gets home, getting the equipment he’ll need at home, setting up outpatient therapy for him, and doctor visits…and I still need to load up the car and get gas. 

His left arm is near normal, he has some fine motor skills to work on and some strengthening of his shoulder, but wow!

He is walking with a walker and two AFO’s (braces) to keep his feet from dropping, and actually walked to his room using a cane today. He also climbed 2 flights of stairs and came back down. 

I can’t say enough thank you’s to the staff here for their kindness and knowledge and patience, the many friends and family that sent cards, well wishes, prayers, financial help, and visits, my daughter M who has taken care of not only herself, but all our pets, and the house, and her 2 brothers (and others) for checking to make sure she’s ok, and many others. We are truly blessed by you all. I may update a time or two over the next few months, but I may not 🙂

G has been working very hard, and making great improvements. 


He got fitted and was able to use the Ekso, a lower body exoskeleton that assists his walking. They have also been using the E Stim on his legs, especially working on getting his flexor muscles in his feet to work. He can now flex his right foot and lift his toes up a bit. He got fitted for a brace for his left foot and may have to wear that for a while. 

We were informed this morning that insurance thinks he no longer needs the inpatient care, so we may be coming home this Friday instead of next. I’m actually really excited to get home. 🙂 and see my other kiddos.
