Update on the Little Man

He is home now, in better spirits and taking things in stride. The surgeon in charge of his surgery drew this witch on his cast to help make him feel better. His favorite holiday is Halloween - the first thing HE drew on his cast was a jack-o-lantern.

The hospital bed arrived yesterday evening and we put it in the front room. He also has a wheelchair that reclines that he is able to move around in. I would like to get him outside as the weather here has been gorgeous and the fall colors are bright and in bloom but it may be a bit too soon for that as he opposes the idea of anyone other than good friends and family seeing him in a wheelchair.

There is hope though that he will be able to maneuver around in crutches down the line since he has his right leg free from the knee down...we'll see what happens.

What good comes from something like this? A friend said that it is "love" and I believe she is right. We have had such an outpouring of love and support from our family, friends, co-workers, and schoolmates that it makes things so much more bearable. The Beatles sung it like this..."All You Need is Love".

Love...and an appreciation for the simple things in life we usually take for granted. Through Little Man's current situation, I am more grateful for the air on my face, the ground under my feet, the ability to move about my world. I pray for his recovery, patience and understanding for your family and even more wonderful lessons learned by the end of this ordeal. Thoughts and so very many prayers are with you guys!!!

That's one cool cast for what I understand is one cool kidlet. Hang in there!
