Getting ready to go home is a lot of work. We've been meeting with medical suppliers, home nurses, therapists and more to make sure we have everything in place for the transition. Everything is coming together. The kids in the neighborhood were asking to see Garren's room today. They are as excited as we are for Garren to come home.
This morning, I asked Garren to smile again. His lip curled up just a little on the right side. So cool. So I asked him to smile for Wren, which he did. Then I had Tara and Emily together, I asked Garren to smile. When he did, those two girls teared up. Garren's smile brought the girls to tears. I was talking to Tara today about some of the things we will be doing with Garren at home. We had him sitting up on the mat, upright, leaning back against a foam wedge. He was doing a great job holding his head steady. Everyone who walked in the room said "Wow, Garren, you look great sitting up!" I thought back to 5 weeks ago, when we first moved to the rehab floor. Garren has come a long ways. The thought of him sitting, moving his head, smiling, communicating with his eyes, was far from our minds.
Thanks to all of you for your continued prayers. We;ve got a lot of adjustments to make over the next few days.
