Great news!!!

My nephew is coming home from the hospital today! 

I sat with him yesterday and was amazed at how much progress he had made since I was there on Sunday.  On Sunday he was laying on the bed with a washcloth over his eyes, not talking, and looking miserable. The blinds were closed and curtains pinned together to block out the light.  He couldn't deal with the light from the hallway so the door had to stay closed as well. 

Yesterday, he barely sat still.  He opened the blinds, walked to the cafeteria for his lunch, took a walk with me,  had back to back physical therapy sessions, and nearly talked my ear off.  The doctors, nurses,  and therapists were amazed at how much he had improved in the past couple of days. 

I want to thank everyone for their support and prayers for Codie.

Thank you for the update on Codie. So glad he's well enough to head home today.

Nothing like the power of prayer!
