We are grateful this Christmas day to be home at BrightWood together. We are sending prayers and love to Nat, Joshua and other families celebrating Christmas in hospital today.
We have been blessed with a Wonderful month at home. Here are a few of the highlights: Some of Forrest friends were able to join him to see Spectre on his 23rd birthday. A real joy after spending two of the last five birthdays in hospital.
A little unconventional chainsaw PT helped bring in our BrightWood Christmas tree!
Christmas shopping with Austin and Forrest is always entertaining!
At Forrests check up at Johns Hopkins with one of his doctors on 12/23, Dr. Liptoncott exclaimed, "Forrest you look like a million bucks!" All of Forrest's blood work looked just as good and we got Forrest's early Christmas wish. No more continuous IV antibiotic's and the Hickman central IV line came out!!!
The unseasonably warm weather in Virginia allowed us to have a day hike on Christmas Eve.
Sending love and gratitude to all our family, friends, prayer warriors, doctors, therapists, and nurses who have made this chapter in Forrest's journey possible. Next up; Pop's legendary herbs de Provence brined beer can turkey!
