we had some temporary complications getting mike’s original trach type put back in after they had to switch it out during surgery. that didn’t get done until friday evening so we couldn’t get discharged until friday night. but the last 2 mornings mike has awoken calm and quiet (instead of screaming & crying out in pain) for the first time in approximately a year barring when he has been sick and unconscious. so we are already praising God for what ultimately is a miracle in mike’s daily life. his muscles are more relaxed–i can move his limbs a lot more easily. and he can be in his wheelchair without any discomfort. i think he is adjusting still from a physically stressful week. he has some headaches and is a bit whispery which drives me nuts. but he is pretty much pain-free. next i will try to book another evaluation with marianjoy rehab hospital to see what new goals we can strive for in rehab. we are a bit worn out with the details of this past week but the truth is it is hard to be more eloquent when the reality is too good for words. mike is pain-free. i wasn’t sure that would ever be true again in his lifetime. praise God from whom ALL blessings flow, michelle
