Yesterday afternoon, Forrest and his entourage departed Washington Hospital Center and journeyed home to snowy BrightWood. Forrest is receiving IV antibiotics around the clock and has family members staying with him at all times. Balance continues to be an issue as his body adjusts to life without his "lid". He is anemic, has lost ten pounds and tires easily. We are so thankful for the countless prayers, caring texts, phone calls and visitors that helped us bring him home again. Tonight his spirits were visibly lifted when multiple visitors stopped by the ManCave to welcome The Champ home. Music and laughter filled BrightWood as Forrest played guitar and sang with Hunt and Sue Lyman, friends Nick and Peyton, Austin and Grandmom Norma. So tonight the stars shine a little brighter and laughter sounds a little sweeter as we fill the house with healing love and energy...thankful for Forrest's unfailing courage and perseverance.
