William’s condition, update 7 … HOMEBOUND!!!
We are going home tomorrow!!!! Thanks, Lord!!!
The recovery process will start again on a different level. One week after being admitted to the ER where the doctors didn’t think my husband would survive, he will be WALKING out…WOW!! (albeit with a walker, but still!)
William will come home with his pic line and continue the antibiotic treatment for another week. Once the medication has finished we’ll visit with the infectious disease doctor to make sure Will’s looking good. He’s still going to have to take life very slow, which I know will be a challenge for him, but a necessary one that he can’t fight right now. Then, we’ll visit with the ENT specialist to see if there’s any work that needs to be done on his sinuses. All of our doctors are fully confident in Will’s recovery and sending him home; they’re still shocked at his progress. Still shocked…I’m finding that still shocking.
Will’s been walking with energy around the floor on & off just about all day. He’s starting to wear me out 🙂 yeah!!! He doesn’t need any sort of therapy!!!! We’ll just continue to pray for his ongoing recovery, headaches, eyesight, equilibrium, and patience in healing. I’m so excited he’ll be home with us! And we get to spend peaceful time at home, relaxing, and enjoying Carter & Colton again!!! Thanks Lord for our richly blessed life!!
I think I’m going to hang a price tag on him that reads “priceless.” The truth is Will is worth any amount to me!! (And thank the Lord for catastrophic coverage!!) After visiting with the insurance department today, I actually am praising the Lord that we were able to pay for our deductible and out of pocket costs…another blessing! They were shocked I was ready and willing to pay our bill, which shocked me that people don’t pay their hospital bills. We practice who we want to ultimately be, and this is part of the integrity we want to live by. We have to answer to Jesus, not bill collectors!
I’m so glad the picture of Will & Cartie pleased so many of you. They’re both so handsome! We’ll try to take a family picture tomorrow as we say goodbye to the wonderful care given to us by Scottsdale Osborn Hospital. I’ll post it tomorrow!
Thank you for all your support, love and prayers. We have needed you this week, and you were more than there…you stepped in like a champion!
