We are settling in to being at home. Robbie had 2 doctor visits yesterday, which were tiring, but so great to see the doctors and nurses that have extended so much love to our family. With a couple of wound changes, the doctors and nurses have commented on how good it looks. Please continue to pray that the healing continues with no infection.
We go back to Memphis this week for a visit to the orthopedic doctors. Later in September, we go back to the spine doctors to check the progress of wearing his brace. Yesterday, I was taught how to change the wound vac in his back! Now I can give injections, change the wound, and perform other nursing duties. I never thought I would even want to do stuff like that, but it’s kind of cool to know how (which worries Robbie :).
Many emotions of this experience have been unexpected, for sure. We so appreciate your continued prayers. With God’s faithful help and our love for one another, we are going to make it. The kids are so glad to have Daddy home, and Betsy has decided she wants to be a nurse or doctor when she grows up. She even saw the open wound in his back and didn’t cringe at all. Everyone has been so good to our kids and we are so appreciative. I know that they have gone through unique emotions and thoughts, and we are working through those with them. All in all, being home is just what the doctor ordered and we continue to entrust ourselves to the Great Physician. All our love to you!
