It's been a while :)

Wow, I didn't realize it's been so long since I blogged for Troy. Well, aside from my life being so full with my classes, working from home again and the girls school activities, everything has been going well with Troy's recovery. The healing is still very slow and I can't say there has been a huge improvement that is noticeable all at one time, but I do notice him getting around a lot easier and he's been working hard at using his right arm more and more. Right now all he can do is open and close his hand, he's still trying to get his brain to communicate with his arm so that he can lift it and reach out for things. Little by little, this is all about baby steps, I tell him.

Thanksgiving this year was wonderful. The hospital gave him what is called a "day pass" where he could come to the house, with a nurse, and spend all day with us. He was transported to the house and back to the hospital on Thursday through Sunday from 10am to 9pm. It was really nice having him home and also getting a feel on how it will be when he finally comes home.

He is scheduled to be home today. The modifications to the tub and the entryways were finally finished yesterday afternoon so the workers' comp rep will be here to inspect it all today and give the OK for Troy to come home. I can't believe it's been 7 months since the accident already and 7 months to the day when Troy gets to come home on a permanent basis.

God has been so good to us through all of this adversity. I have been able to keep everything together and keep my sanity at the same time! It hasn't been easy and at times I feel myself dwindling away, but then I realize how much worst off we could have been without Troy here and it gives me the energy to keep fighting for him.

Troy has come a long way and he still has a long road ahead of him to continue on. I have said this before and I will say it again, this is the true test of patience and faith.

So, with this said, and now that Troy will be home, I will try to keep up the blog as much as I can. I don't know exactly how everything will be with him being home and all, but I'm sure we'll adjust, just as we have with everything else. God is the pilot of this ship, I'm just going to sit back and put all my trust and faith in Him, just as I have been doing and pray for the best. Thanks again to all for your prayers and thoughts through this journey!
