Home SWEET home

Blogger was down earlier, so I wasn't able to post this sooner, but...

TODD IS HOME!!!!!


We were pretty surprised when they came in this morning telling us that Todd was being discharged today. We hardly dared believe it. He still had all his therapy sessions, and even went to Best Buy, and picked out a CD, which he surprised me with.

Here he is at Best Buy with his OT Celeste and the Recreational Therapist Dave:

Afterword we stopped at the cafeteria for ice cream, and Todd was able to realize that he was getting overwhelmed, so we went back to his room and he rested while we got all sorts of discharge orders, prescriptions, and instructions.

Here he is finally exiting the hospital, with all his paraphernalia, being helped by his Nurse, Susan:

And finally arriving home, to be greeted by Oli and the doggies: He missed all three of them so much:

And our family, together in one piece, in one place.

That is awesome news! We're so excited that he was able to go home.

And hey, no one told me Todd had a RT. I was honestly starting to worry that no one used RT's because Todd's recovery would be awesome with one and yet he didn't have one. But he does, which might I add, Rocks! Probably the coolest form of therapy out there...
