Today, after an unexpected 24 hour stay, Evan came home from the hospital. All said, the extra time was very good for him, he got great rest, made new friends, and knew that when it was time to go, he could "blow this popsicle stand" on his time.
The graft donor site on the back of his right thigh is very tender, and quite painful when he moves around. But the amount of drainage has slowed down considerably. The grafted sites, where tissue was taken out, are not nearly as uncomfortable.
When Evan got home he found a package waiting for him. Lego! The last elements of his complete Mars Mission theme arrived. With the help of a mini folding table, he sat up and assembled legos for a couple of hours before enjoying a tasty meal brought over by Ms. Danielle and Mr. Jeremy. (Thank you to all who have provided meals, transport, shelter and love) After this wonderful meal, he retired for the evening. It had been a long, tiring and at times painful day.
Morgan, Evan's sister, having spent the night at Mr. & Mrs. Woodards with her friend Ryan (Sp? apologies) was taken to her soccer game by her mom, an unanticpated event that was good for both of them. We will now all lay low and take things one day at a time.
As always, thank you for your thoughts, words and prayers, Evan feels lifted up and encouraged by all the wonderful words of support by both those he knows and those who he will get to know.
There is no place like home.
By Him, Through Him, For Him, Thank you.
