All is well

Shawn is doing great!
He's home pigging out, making up for lost time.
He feels much better. He told me he went up and down our forty one steps four times and felt fine. No shortness of breath.
It's so amazing to me. It was only four months ago that he couldn't walk up with up FOUR steps on 5 liters of oxygen without gasping for air.
What a miracle.

His surgeon called me as soon as Shawn went into recovery to give me the details. There are still areas that continue to heal and slough off dead tissue which will need to be cleaned up, so he'll go back in another 2 weeks. Otherwise his lungs look great.

So all is well in my world, the sky did not fall.

Tomorrow morning I head back to Boston. Back to my home, my husband, my dgtr and my life. I can't wait. I can't wait because it's all wonderful, I am Blessed and I am grateful.

Modern medicine is an awesome thing!!! I'm sure 50 years from now, what they are doing now will seem so ancient... LOL.

Pigging out?? Yay.. good sign. I know you'll be so glad to get home. :)

That's such great news Tina!!! It is really hard to imagine Shawn walking up those flights of stairs *4* times! I'm so impressed. Way to go.....

I'm sure you'll enjoy being back with your fam!
