Michelle told me that during their private time she said, "Just think Ryan, we were only 20 minutes away from home. 20 minutes from unpacking our cars and going to bed together. Just 20 minutes away from normal." And that's when Ryan said, "Yeah, but I am just so blessed and thankful that the kids are all okay and you're okay. I am thankful I got the worst of it." He said he has had long recovery's before so he knows what's in store and he's ready to get started.
Before we left, I snagged a picture of the two of them. I haven't posted any pictures up to this point because I felt I wanted Michelle to give me the okay . . . well tonight she thought it would be okay to post the picture.
We made it home and a friend had Aidan and Moriah out at the mall and a family member had Emma at the movies. We had time to get Michelle situated and comfortable, pick up her prescriptions and get a cane/bathing chair from the American Legion before they came home. The kids are so excited to have her home and even Aidan is willing to help out. I got this picture of him helping his mom put on her slippers.
