Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety-Jig!!

Yesterday was 2 months since the accident, and Ryan finally made it home!! We've decided 2 months late is better than never!! Emma was busy making some welcome home signs and decorations. She had a bit of help from Mr. Brian Scott!!!

Friday nights are usually our Pizza/Movie night. We usually make a frozen pizza, or for a special treat we order from Pizza Man's! Then we watch a family movie. Last night we had dinner with his parents before we left and then we came home to watch one of the latest Veggie Tales, Abe and the Big Promise. Today we slept in and we have just enjoyed being together in our home! Ryan and I have always tried to appreciate each other and the time we have together, and to not take it for granted. Since the accident we treasure our time together all the more.

Today we had Ryan's new Michigan cup filled with his favorite soda, a fountain Cherry Pepsi from the Shell. Uncle Jim brought him a 3 Musketeers and he cut it up with a knife so he could eat it!

His appointments in Flint went well last week. The hardware is off the teeth and the cast if off the hand. We should not have to go back to see those doctors unless there are issues. I  liked both Dr. Morris and Dr. Stewart and I am thankful for the work they did for my husband!

Many people have asked what kind of foods Ryan is eating now. Last night he had his first chocolate chip cookie!! He's had some chili cheese fries from the A & W. Doesn't sound like he's eating too healthy, but he does have about 20 lbs to gain! He eats a lot of eggs, and still has protein shakes. He had scalloped potatoes and ham today for lunch and asian chicken with rice and veggies for dinner. He is so slow!! It takes him forever to eat a meal!

Monday I will see the dr. about my right shoulder. Please be praying the problem is found and can be taken care of quickly! Also on Monday Ryan has another visit to the opthamologist for his left eye. His vision in that eye has still not completely returned, but he does think it has improved. We'll find out for sure on Monday.

Thank you for sharing in this journey with us! Thank you for praying, for visiting, helping with meals and housework, sending cards and encouraging words. Thank you for sharing in our joy to be together again as a family!
