Being home has been the best thing for Michael. He's been more willing to get up and move around to find a different position when he is in pain. He sleeps up to six hours at a time at night. That may not seem like a lot, but compared to what he had been getting this past week - it's terrific!
The three youngest children came yesterday to visit their oldest brother. They'll come home to stay tonight. Even though the 3 girls were in their pjs last night, Eric went to get them anyway as he just couldn't wait to bring them home. Sometimes he'll say "we have too many kids," but he's happiest when he has his whole brood together!
We cannot express just how grateful we are to everyone for your faithful prayers. Please keep praying during Mike's recovery. The next couple of weeks are the most critical as he is still in some pain and we'd like to see him get off the Perciset as soon as possible. Pray that we would have wisdom in this. His full recovery will be up to a year, but we will take it day by day.
It's just so good to have him home!
This may explain why Mike's in pain.
The air-hockey table was a great recuperation tool for Mike.
Mike was thrilled to be going home! Once he got his clothes on, he refused to get back into that hospital bed!
Within 45 minutes of coming home!
Mike feeling well enough to play with his new cap gun.
Happy to be together again!
