First Fall

Well today was for the most part ok. Kyle had PT first thing this morning, they worked on his shoulders. They think he has tendonitis in his shoulders so they have been letting him rest a little. He started intermittent catherization and is so good at it. He does it all by himself no problem. He worked on transfers in the bathroom with the equipment he will be using at home. It was really tough.They say it will get easier.During OT today Kyle fell out of his chair for the first time. They had the axles to far back on his chair and it tipped over and out he went. Im sure that will be the first of many. He is ok and didn't hurt anything other than his pride. For some reason we have been really tired this week. I think its a combination of this crapy weather and the fact that we are working our butts off( more Kyle than me) to try to get home before christmas! Talked to the girls today, they look good. Kyla had her trusty blanket and Brooke was telling me all about piano. I bet she is getting so good. I can't wait to go home and hear all her Christmas music. My girls are growing up, and I am missing so much of it. I keep saying just a few more days, but I don't know. I can't leave Kyle, but I miss my kids. I just hope Kyle gets to come home early with me! Sorry I haven't blogged in awhile, but we have been so busy. I will try not to let it happen again. Well goodnight, I am going to sleep like a baby.


  1. It sounds like he is doing real good. We understand when you don't blog, we are just so used to reading something everyday. Kyle Keep up the good job.

  2. Kyle and Erica...hold on just a few more weeks!Erica, I know you are sooo torn about the girls.I am sooo thankful that you and Kyle have such a wonderful family who are willing to step in..Kyle, sounds like you are working your little tail off!! but that is not unusual for you, is it? its either 150% or none at all. And no more tricks with the wheelchair ok? I am still praying for you both.
    work hard kyle but don't overdo it..hurry home, i miss your face..and your voice on the phone
