This morning we woke up to about 4 inches of snow and as the day progressed it was closer to 10 in and by tomorrow we should have 18 inches, but guess what I was warm in all my warm clothes!
Kyle got to sleep in today his therapy didn't start til 11 am and they were going to take his staples out but there was still a little piece that didnt look ready so he has 5 still in. It beats the 30 he had in before and hopefully by Friday the rest will come out and he will finally get to shower. These bed baths are not working for him, you know those Myers boys they have to have like 2 showers a day! Therapy was a little harder today, his arms were really sore so he got really frustrated when he couldn't do his exercises as well as he did them the day before. I am sure this is the first of many frustrations, but he is a fighter so he will push thru.
The therapuetic recreation dept came and visited with us. They are known as the fun group, they do crafts and go on outings such as skiing, canoeing, they go to nuggets basketball games and bronco's games. It is kinda like a way to get out and have fun but it also teaches Kyle how to get around outside the hospital and gets him ready to deal with things when he gets home. I can see him going to many football games but I don't see him canoeing, he is not really a water type guy.
His stamina is getting better he was up all day except maybe 2 hours. Everyday gets a little easier for him as far as pain and stamina. He does say however that his arms feel like jello. The therapists here don't take any excuses and you know Kyle he tries to talk his way out of everything! I think he was really missing the girls today. He said he is ready to see them hopefully that will be real soon because I am ready too! We talked to Brooke today she had just finished her homework and we could hear McKyla in the back ground saying Daddy, Daddy, Daddy so I am sure they are missing him too. I hear they get to go to Whumpo's and eat popsicles after school, wish it was hot enough here for a popsicle.
We got to meet Jeremy Phillips last night, he is Dayle Kuehler's nephew, very nice guy. Talked to him for about 30 min. We also met Kevin Kyzer who is Mrs. Winchester's son, I think. He flies a helicopter for a medical company here, right next door to be exact. He gave Kyle a book called Lone Survivor sounds like a good book. I will probably start reading it to Kyle tomorrow, because I want to read it too. We got cards from the Lutheran Church in Vernon, Nancy Birkenfeld and family, and John Krauss and family. We love reading the cards, its nice to know that so many people care. Thank You.
Let's hope the weather man in Denver is as wrong as the weather man in Texas and the snow will not continue another day.
By the way Halloween over here is like Christmas in Texas, they get way to into it. If you have any ideas on a costume for Kyle we are taking suggestions, try to make it something easy we dont have much time but they say he needs to dress up!
