We made it home this afternoon after being in the hospital for 5 nights. I was a little worried about the 2 hour drive home but Tyler is such a trooper and made it the entire way without stopping. We made sure to give him his pain medication right before we left in hopes it would make him more comfortable. I guess it did because he slept the entire way home. He wasn't very happy when we got home though and I think the trip made him pretty sore. He has been flinching and cries out every time you tried to move him or touch him. Hopefully tonight won't be too bad for him and he will sleep without too much pain.
Poor little guy is hating us right now and the next couple of weeks is going to be tough on him as he begins to recover. Travis and I have adjusted our work schedules so one of us can be home with him for the next 2 weeks. After that, we will see how he is and hopefully he will be ready to go back to school. But right now, we are just taking it day by day.
