Everybody is gone now- including Brian. My parents left yesterday after Brian, Olivia, and I went to church. Brian went back to work today. He did come home to eat lunch and get Ian up on the stander a few minutes. Tomorrow morning someone from church is coming over to sit with Ian while I run Olivia to school and then hopefully help me get him out of bed. Then another person is coming later in the morning to help me get him in the stander. I can run to the grocery store and pick Olivia up from school while she is here too. The main difficulty is getting Ian moved from place to place while Brian is at work.
His appetite is just about back to normal I think. He just ate a very good lunch, and is content in his cast, which we are very thankful for. He also slept better last night, and neither of us had to sleep with him. The weather is kind of crummy today, but on nice days we can go for a walk. Unless we get really desperate, Ian definitely will not be going on any car rides! Since he can't sit, we have to put on his harness and push and pull him in his lying position across the seat and then strap him in using that harness. It's not easy, and he did not care for it on the way home. I think other than that all is well. I just need to figure out what we're going to do at home for the next 5 weeks!
I think that's it for today. I've been catching up on bills and things that were overlooked while we were in the hospital. I'm anxious to get our cast removal date- the 7th or 14th of December. We'll be counting down the days, and I'll be Christmas shopping on-line! I better go get Ian turned. He's a great little trooper.
I probably won't post too much because there won't be a lot going on. Will let you know if anything changes or we get a cast removal date.
