Richelle is being released to heal!!!!

Tomorrow Richelle is being released to let her injuries heal over the next 6-8 weeks before she can begin her physical therapy! This is great news! I am so proud of her!! She is so strong! She will be in a wheel chair for these 6-8 weeks but it will be nice for her to get out and see the world after her 2 and a 1/2 week hospital stay!!! GO RICHELLE!!! When Richelle was first brought home from St Joseph when she was born, she was in her stroller in the kitchen. I was being an annoying big brother and grabbed the stroller and starting zooming her around the kitchen while I shouted "hello little baby, lets go for a ride!" I will get to relive this moment again! Ready sis???? Love you[...]

Knee Sugery Sucess!!!!!

Richelle had her surgery to repair her left knee today. It was a complicated case, but the surgeons said very proudly that "they smoked it!" meaning it went extremely well for how severe it was. My friend in the unit confirmed the overall success of the surgery. If it wasn't for her hip fractures the surgeon said they would have "outpatiented" her today, so we are getting closer to having her home!!! She was a trooper! She is in good spirits after the surgery and we are so happy she is done with surgeries all together. Now its on to healing, wheelchair training and physical therapy!! THANK YOU ALL SO SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR OVERWHELMING SUPPORT!.[...]
