Back at School

Yesterday was Tyler's first day back at school since his surgery. He has been out for 3 1/2 weeks. His cast was removed last Thursday and he is still extremely stiff and not wanting to move his legs on his own yet. So we have been doing a lot of range of motion and stretching for him. He is not a huge fan of this and really hates it when you have to move him. It's almost harder to see him like this now than it was when he was in his cast and after surgery. Recovery STINKS!!!

We wanted to ease him back into the swing of things, so he only went to school for half the day. And I think that was plenty for him to start with. He was pretty worn out last night and didn't sleep the greatest. I think he was just overly exhausted and maybe a little sore from all the extra moving and stretching. We are going to try for a full day today and so far so good.

Recovery stinks. I'm agreeing.

Hoping his full day went a lot better than his half. And, hoping the stretching really helps those stiff legs.
