Tonight is Brian’s last night at Mercy Fairfield! He’s being released tomorrow from the in-patient rehab center. The past 28 days have been a true journey and Brian couldn’t be happier to be going home. Today he said that it will be bittersweet to leave because of all that has happened there and because he has really connected with some of the people that he has met, but he is grateful to be going home. I’m sure I speak for all of us when I say that we are overjoyed as well :) The next steps are outpatient rehab and selecting a prosthetic. He has already mastered maneuvering with a wheelchair and can get around just fine on his own. He has worked tirelessly this past week and half and has much to show for it. We are so proud of him! The amount of love and support that you have shown to Brian is overwhelming. However, continued support through this next phase of transition and change is going to be important. Please don’t stop sending messages, calling, reaching out, visiting, etc!
As always, thank you for your love, support, and prayers! And Praise God for His continued love and favor!
*Don’t forget* The Golf Scramble is October 14. Check the photo section for the flyer and more info. Even if you’re not a golfer, it would be great to see you and spend a little time celebrating Brian’s progress. There will be other events to follow, so keep a look out here and on facebook!
