A long and winding road...

As you know at the beginning of August my husband of 40 years had a stroke. He was life flighted to the University Hospital in Ann Arbor.
We are now on Day 31 at the hospital here in Ann Arbor!
John has come so far and part of it is due to the AMAZING staff here. Everyone from the nurses, therapists, doctors, and specialist are TOP NOTCH. John completes 5 hours of therapy a day which I attend so together we will see how to support each other. Physically he is a "rock star" but because the thalamus is the control center of the brain knowing what to do and remembering anything is not a simple task. It is exhausting for him. Things that once were simple are now a difficult task. (walking, talking, getting dressed...)
He has not lost his sense of humor or his love for his family who support him 100%.
Our goal is to bring John home on September 7th but depending on the team's decision and the progress John makes that may be delayed one week.
We have put all handicap accessible items in at the house so he will be safe and comfortable when he arrives.
We are well aware we have a long journey ahead of us but TOGETHER we are up to the challenge.
In a sea of Maize and Blue we are ready to SPARTY ON with a little "tail gate" party in John's room. He does not remember Spartan football which I told him was not a bad thing given last year's Sparty performance.
I have a few moments here and there to work with TpT, Facebook posts and the Blog. Be patient as once I get back home I will be able to spend more time on the computer.
If you are a praying sort please continue to pray as the next part of our journey begins.
Life threw us a curve ball but we are hitting a home run!
