Welcome Home Adam

Fifty-four days, almost 8 weeks, after Adam's mountain biking accident that resulted in a spinal cord injury, Adam checked out of Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital and walked out of its doors.

Rather than wait until Monday morning to check-out, we asked for permission to leave on Sunday when he was done with his therapy.

 We thank God for the AMAZING recovery that we have witnessed at this point.
He gets all of the glory for this!

Adam even took the high road and willingly let the nurses paint the toenails on one of his feet. 
I was so proud of him. I sat him down for a talk the day before and told him it wasn't worth it to hurt himself or anyone else over toenails being painted. 

Adam will return several times a week for Outpatient Therapy after Thanksgiving. They encouraged him to spend 2 weeks at home getting a feel for "normal" life and seeing areas that may need to be worked on.

This journey is certainly not over yet. But we have seen God's care and faithfulness and felt His presence everywhere we've turned. This song sums it up pretty good for where our hearts are today.
