Mr Boy was discharged from the hospital at noon on Thursday. We were all very happy to be home! Mr Boy was a little frustrated to find he could not walk or crawl although he did try his best to do so. With all the moving around he did, he woke friday morning with the bolts on his metal fixator popped off the rods in his pelvis. We rushed to the Orthopedic surgeon's office who said, "what do you think about just taking them off?" I said, "that would be wonderful," as I stifled the urge to jump up and down and scream for joy. They took off all the nuts and bolts and unscrewed the rods from his bones right then and there, a week and a half early!

Mr Boy doesn't seem to mind wearing his BI-PAP mask to help him breath while he sleeps. He even tolerates his leggings. :) I walked into his room to talk this picture after we thought he had been sleeping for a while and I heard him yell, "cheese!"

My mom came last week to help with the transition from hospital to home, and will be here through Thanksgiving. We got home from the hospital just in time because my sister flew in Friday with my new nephew Mr D (so sad my brother-in-law Daric couldn't be here too!).  And my dad flew in today! We are thankful we will have a Thanksgiving full of family in our own home and not the hospital! 

Notre Dame, Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguar Pride!

We've been truly thankful to be home and couldn't be more grateful to all of you who prayed for us and for Mr Boy through all this. He has healed so well. The wound is looking better all the time and he even crawled a few feet today! I know his strength will be back in no time and he will be walking and and functioning better than he was ever able to do before.


  1. You all look so great! We miss you of course, but what a blessing to be home for Thanksgiving :)

  2. Wow! What a blessing. Thanks for sharing all these great pics... it really shows everyone who has been praying just how well he is doing. He is such a cutie!

  3. What a doll baby he is!!! Look at him lay with those legs together and crossed at the ankles. How awesome is that! He looks like he already loves his little cousin Dawson. Dawson is not quite as sure, lol. You guys have an incredible time together. Truly a THANKSGIVING to remember! Love you all so much! Martha
