There is No Place Like Home!

Forrest and Team have settled back in at BrightWood and have barely skipped a beat.  We have jumped right back into filling Forrest's days with school, therapies and activities to help him regain his strength and endurance (very important after a week in the hospital!!!).  The graft site on his leg, the PICC line in his arm and the turban-like bandage on his head occasionally cause little hiccups in the daily routine, but overall, Forrest maintains his "bring it on" attitude and amazes us every minute with his resilience and ability to bounce back so quickly after a tumultuous week in the hospital.  His spirits remain high, his smiles are quick to appear and his eyes sparkle with life. 

Here is a link to a video of Forrest playing fetch with Super Therapy dog, Sundance:

  1. Forrest it's so nice to see you back home and I love the fetch game with Sundance. Love and prayers for continued healing and 'your break'.


  2. You continue to amaze us! Glad to have you nearby again and back to work.

  3. Glad you're doing well back at home, Forrest. I know you and the team are thrilled to be back there. Keep up the good work!!
