We're HOME! There are no words I could say to explain what it was like to come through the door yesterday at our home. We cried of excitement to see our kitties. It was priceless. We were so overwhelmed of the kindness of our friends and neighbors for all they did for us to arrive home. There was even a big banner hanging over the TV welcoming us home. I will post some pictures of everything tomorrow, I am just to tired right now to look for the camera plug LOL.
The drive was easy. Lenny was really good about doing his leg exercises to keep that blood pumping. Yiyi and Gary followed us home which was comforting to know we weren't alone. My dad was here when we got home, it was great to see him and our neighbors as well! The rest of the day went by quickly, and before we knew it we realized how tired we were, so we were both asleep by 10.
This morning for the first time in the 3 weeks Lenny and I have been together since the accident I was up before him. I woke up at 7 because I needed to organize his phone book of a medical record we brought with us for his 10:30am doctor's appointment. I could hear him snoring away in the living room and it was so comforting to hear him sleeping, no one coming in to take his blood pressure, tell him to get up, etc. Well I was heartbroken to have to come out and wake him up at 8, but he needed to start the morning procedures to be ready to go to the doctor. He could tell I hated doing it to cause he gave me a hard time about waking him up all day! Always the joker.
Oh, and I forgot to report earlier, while we were driving home we were notified that our insurance company has authorized us for outpatient care at Casa Colina, which is fantastic news! They specialize in the kind of care that Lenny needs! We have our first appointments on Friday!!
The doctors went well, we were there a while because of course there was so much to say, so much to do. Our next steps: blood work, xrays, ophthalmologist appointment, ortho appointment, medication follow up, and of course therapies. Just as we expected. Lenny asked me when we get a break and I told him when he is all better! (But we will have a break this weekend of course, I just refuse to waste a perfectly good weekday).
It was been FANTASTIC to have visitors. We both are just loving it! Please let me know when any of you would like to come over and visit! We are ready for you, first asking me, first served LOL!!! Just call me or email me firstname.lastname@example.org!
Love to you all,
Nancy & Lenny
More pictures to come tomorrow! He is looking great!
