On March 22nd 2013 Chad had an accident at work that involved alot of head trauma... He went into surgery yesterday around 3:45 and had extensive repair done. After a long day he is now recovering in the icu and for now its just a waiting game... For right now there asking for just family to visit as we need to keep him calm for all the extensive brain injury/repairs he has had. Thanks for all the support and prayers.. we will keep you updated!!
Things are still going really well. Chad had his last physiologist appointment at the end of January. He wanted to see Chad to make sure work was going well. Again he was pleased with how far he has come. He told us "In all my years I haven't seen anyone heal as well as you have." With that being said, Chad has one more less doctor! On March 21st Chad will go see his neurologist for his medication he is on. He is on two medications. One is a seizure med that helps with headaches and also is a mood stabilizer. The other med is because his platelets are low from being on the seizure med. She wanted him on the these for one year after his injury, we will see what she says! Hard to believe its coming up on a year already! A few weeks ago Chad returned to his bowling league. His first night back, first game he bowled was a 244! He came home pretty happy. Last Saturday he joined the boys in a 9 pin tournament. He is signed up to bowl another 9 pin tournament in April. I'm thinking he is enjoying bowling! A week ago Chad went to A1 archery to shoot bow with Craig. He is wrestling with the kids and picking on them again. He is working on his truck a lot lately, which isn't a good thing but it is to me. For Chad to be able to do all these things again make me feel so blessed. It is the little things we forget about, which are the big things when you look back. Those little things were what I missed the most and they are starting to come back! Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers throughout all of this! Love to you all!
