I've been promising an update on my son, and while I have a spare moment, I thought I'd type it up!
He has come so far that it is absolutely overwhelming when I read back thru this thread and see where we were just a few months ago compared to where
we are now. My child amazes me on a daily basis.
He has been discharged by the neurosurgeon (YAY!), the orthopedist says the broken femur has healed beautifully and that he doesn't need to see him
again for 6 months, and his local pediatrician has taken over management of his care.
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays he goes to school in the mornings and then goes to the hospital for therapies during the afternoon. Tuesdays and
Thursdays he goes to school all day, and as of last week, he has started back to daycare after school on those days so he can be with his friends I've
never seen a kid love daycare so much...lol.
He is coming along in school. He is still behind, but more and more is coming back to him and he is making steady progress. He still isn't in a
regular classroom; he spends most of his time at school with a one-on-one personal aide, and she happens to be a retired special ed teacher which is a
wonderful thing for us.
The neurosurgeon said I could most likely plan on seeing a full recovery, but he will probably have some deficits for the rest of his life. We just
have to learn around them and compensate for them in other ways.
I want to thank all of you again. Actually, I can't ever sufficiently thank all of the people on ats and irl for all of the support and prayers you
all so selflessly sent out for us. There is no doubt in my mind that prayers, good energy, angels and my son's very stubborn nature all came together
and saved his life. I am forever in your debt, my friends.
