Tyler's personality is back. He is still on the pain medication but for the most part he is tolerating the pain fairly well. He still gets the med Oxydodone, but has been able to go every 5-6 hours instead of every 4 hours. The other med Valium, which helps with muscle spasms, has only needed about once a day if even that. I didn't even have to give the Valium to him the day before. This makes me very happy because this is the one that zapped his personality. Now if we can get rid of that cast he would be back to normal.
Before we left for the hospital, we lined every thing up with the school and therapy schedules. The school is providing in-home therapy for 2 hours each day until he is ready to go back to school. Yesterday his physical therapist came and she worked with helping him prop sit and head control. She also laid him on his belly. This was a little tricky with his cast and all. But we figured it out and Tyler tolerated that for about 10 minutes. Did I say how much of a trooper he is? He is so0o amazing!!
