February 2, 2010


Mom, Jackie and I got to Baylor at 9am to pick you up. It took us almost two hours to gather your stuff, do paperwork and say our goodbyes. It was bittersweet wheeling you across the parking lot. We got you into the van and strapped down and then we hit the highway. You tolerated the drive home. On the way home, we had to stop at two pharmacies for your many meds. By the time we got you home, you were wore out! Dad and Robert got you in the house and it was a task ( the ramps are not built yet) and then into bed. Mom and Diana checked your vitals, gave you a breathing treatment, fed you and gave you your meds. Jackie and I unloaded your stuff, organized your closet and put stuff away. You seemed tired but I noticed your mood seemed different. I didn't get the reaction I was looking for but it is hard for you with your brain injury to show emotion but you seemed aware that you were out of the hospital and in a familiar place although your room is new to us all. Well Johnny, as exciting as it is for you to be home, you have so much hard work ahead of you. You can't get discouraged...well, yes you can but you can't give up! God's not through with you yet! You need to thank Him and Praise Him by testifying how He saved you and until you can, I'll do it for you. God has been so good to our family! It's amazing how He has drawn us all closer together. We love you Johnny and this is just the beginning.
Now!! Roll-up your sleeves little brother, you have a lot of work to do!
Love you!! xo Jen

Packed up and ready to sleep...

Jackie is giving you a suction for the road

Who's in charge here?

Heading home...

Not sure what that look is for

Giving us a smile - your left side is still a little weak

Picture is blurry but shows your room...wasn't mom clever with the hockey sticks

No words needed : )
