We're Home!

After much household preparation and cleaning, I got to TIRR to pick Pete up at about noon yesterday. We stopped for a sonic on the way and then got home in time for Anna to have taken a nice long nap and waking up happy to see daddy.

We've had some interesting experiences with transferring into and out of the wheelchair. Recliners are tough to get out of, and the carpet is a little tricky to navigate, but I have to figure in a few days, this will all be second nature to us and Pete's right leg will get very strong! Right now, he's doing laps around the house. We watched some football yesterday and had pizza for dinner. I was absolutely worn out by the time we went to bed last night. But it was the good kind of worn out where you can snuggle in and sleep.

Anna is very glad daddy is home, but she is a little stressed by the whole experience. Today will be mostly hanging around the house and maybe a few short outings. The wheelchair is much less difficult to get into the trunk than I expected, so it shouldn't be a problem at all, again, in a couple of days.

I know it has been a long and hard road, but my hats off to both of you. Kristy you are an amazing woman, I am sure Pete would agree. You have endured and overcome with the Grace of God. Pete you for being to stubborn to give up.You must have done something right God decided to give you a second chance. When I grow up I wanna be just like you.(a sour kraut)
See you both soon. I still have the keys to your truck.
