Ok. This is Tessa. I am back. Kelly is doing AWESOME. He is walking without his Boy Scout stick. He is eating very well. He laughs at all my jokes (this is a sign of GREAT cognitive perception 🤣.). He goes sometimes 12 hours without pain meds. His attitude is tremendous, and I am enjoying having him home. ❤️ The nurse took out 25 stitches yesterday, and we went to Outback and Walmart too. This was Kelly’s first outing since coming home in the car only last Friday, September 28. Walmart was NOT a good idea. We went in for 2 things, and they had CHRISTMAS STUFF out. I got so distracted. Finally, Kelly quietly told me he was fading. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 NOT funny at the time. I felt badly. But today it is funny to think of the magnetic pull this had on me. 🙄 Oh and... In the span of the day of surgery (September 25) to today, we have had a broken pool, 10 diseased 30-40 foot Pine Trees to cut down, and our roof is getting replaced due to damage in a recent hail storm. I have been dealing with a lot of service guys. I seem to get around to telling them that Kelly usually fixes all this (except roof) but he had brain surgery, and then when their eyes get big, I pull out my phone and show them the picture of his BIG scar. They have all been in awe of Kelly’s scar!!! 😳 They get this look and say “Sorry to hear about his surgery, but wow that’s an awesome scar.” I told Christa about all these guys reactions to Kelly’s scar. She responded, “Mom, does Daddy know you are exploiting his scar?” 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Hey when my Fix It Guy is not available, I figure it can’t hurt. So that is my Just Testing Part 2. Kelly is such a fighter. He just doesn’t have ANY idea how strong he is. I am very very grateful for his healing so far. We keep smiling, and each day is a day of healing. Thank you for reading.
