Adjusting to Life at Home

We got home last Thursday just 10 minutes before Caleb's show started!  We were all thrilled that we could be there to cheer him on.  He did awesome and I will post pictures soon.  In true fashion, we hit the ground running when we got home and haven't stopped since!

Abby has enjoyed being home and is taking everything in stride as usual.  She's been doing lots of school work during the day to keep her skills up.  Her medicine schedule is finally starting to slow down a little as we are able to wean some of the respiratory meds. For a while there, it was crazy!  My alarms on my phone were going off constantly!  Now, we have it down to 6 a.m., 8 a.m., 12 p.m., 6 p.m., 7:30 p.m., and 12 a.m.  It's not great, but it's better than it was! 

The reality of wearing the halo for 6-8 more weeks has set in with Abs.  She handles it amazingly well, but she does say rather matter of factly that she hates the halo.  I can't say I blame her!

She gets her stitches out next Wednesday and then we will see about when she can go back to school.  She's been managing her pain pretty well during the day, so I'm thinking it should be soon.
