My son arrived home on Wednesday morning this week, thank you Big Bear.
He was jet lagged and in some pain but it was wonderful to see him at last.
There were a lot of tears, hugs, and love going on, I won't deny that I wasn't shocked to see my son minus half of his right leg, but I was ready for it, and so was he, and we both coped well.
He is still in hospital for the time being, because we have to have alterations made to our bungalow (mainly the bathroom) to accomodate him and a wheelchair until the time he gets a prothesis leg, but once this work is done he will be home.
He still has his positive attitude to life, and he is determined to travel again one day.
His dad and I are just glad he is only 20 miles away now, instead of 16.000 miles, LOL......
So it's a lot of TLC from his mom now - whether he likes it or not!!!!! I nearly lost him, so I have a lot of time to make up now.
Me butting in too............. but just wanted to send my very best wishes to you Donnie and your son and family. What a huge and welcome relief to have him back near you, and here's hoping for a return to strength and health for him as he adjusts to life back here and his new prosthesis.
Much love and best wishes Donnie, you take care now xx
