Feeling a lot of things - most are a bit surreal! I'll try and put some of them into words in the coming days, but for right now, I'm so excited to be HOME and to be with my family!!!!
Walking away from the hospital after we were discharged yesterday felt strange. I honestly didn't know if I should laugh or cry!!! So I did neither, and just tried to wrap my head around what was had just happened....removing all of Nates monitors, dressing in him real clothes (which he detested, by the way....bringing home those hospital jammies would have made life a lot easier...he's not doing well with change right now!), armed with all his meds and simply walking away from the hospital. The place where medical expertise and equipment were only seconds away from Nate. After all of the constant care and monitoring - we could simply leave....just walk away. Surreal!
Nate was a great flyer again, awake for the whole flight this time. It felt so great to touch down in Winnipeg and to see my sister waiting there for us! After getting Nate's meds in (not an easy task anymore....maybe because there are more - or maybe because he's just sick of them!), we had a quiet drive home.
Today, the priority is just being. Being together, being family. My goal is to try to infuse Nate with as much joy and happiness as possible. Right now, he's happily playing with Brady, and I think that will also help him get back to his true self.
Thank you for your prayers....they got us home! And thanks for continuing to pray for Nate!
