"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us" - Helen Keller
Home Sweet Home!
A restful night was had by all and all really needed it.
Buddy slept through the night w/out waking up for meds. He's on pain medication every 5 to 6 hours now. I try to wing him as soon as possible, although I don't want him to be in pain and don't let his pain threshold go to far, I don't like the idea of a 12 year old becoming addicted to pain medication.
The Therapist and Home Nurse have both cancelled on us today, they are both coming tomorrow at which time I will find out when we can get Buddy up on his feet, get him moving, what his physical therapy program is going to entail and what his plan of action will be. The Dr. says he should be able to stand and walk with the use of his walker within days of his surgery.
His therapy room is done, complete with a brand new Exercise Bike, small trampoline, lg bouncy ball, weights and other goodies to get him motivated and moving!
I did, as promised, make a video so without further a-do here it is.
