Hey y'all!!

Sorry for the lack of updates, I have been super busy between work and his appointments it gets hard to keep my family in the loop let alone a bunch of great people that care. I hope you understand and keep following, I will update more often just not every day!!! 
Today, I mixed up appointments but luckily realized it before it became a problem. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ also realised, today that he had another appointment tomorrow!! Yay me!!  Tristen is hoping they cut through all the cotton and casting tomorrow and they clean his arms and hands! Simple request I feel!! His humor is high. His spirit is amazing. Its fun to be around him. Except this boy is a pig! He eats constantly!!! Which means we feed him.....constantly!!!   ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ todays appointment was again for his eye. Pressure was up a tad, doctor didn't make to Too big out deal about it. Said come back in 2 weeks to check on healing and and swelling. Still wanting to do the lift and adjustment on his eye though! .
Thanks again for all the well wishes and prayers!!!

Pressure in tristens eye went from a 31 on surgery day to staying at a 21 throughout hospital stay and is now down to a 13!!ย  Friday he gets to stop taking one of his drops for his eyes and we have a follow up next week to talk about the surgery to lift his eye lid. Maybe sooner than we thought. This boy is just flying through the physical healing portion of his recovery so fast its amazing. Ear nose and throat and Arm appointments on the 3rd. At that time we should have a better understanding of what the future looks like. Trauma will be calling me today to schedule a few more follow up appointments with them. Not sure when P.T or O.T will start up again but they have given him things to do in the mean time.ย 
This boy amazes me daily!!!ย 
Thanks for the continued prayers!!

Im so sorry for the lack of updates..

Tristen came home on Saturday and it went great until it was bedtime. It turned into a horrible painful night. Tristens nerves in his face started firing!!! Which is amazing but very painful. The doctors once again are slumped on how quick he is healing. So we went back to the E.R and saw the trauma Dr that released him. He got some medication to help with that pain and went home with a few meds. Last night was awesome. Still some pain, but bearable. He did great and we all got a good nights sleep. The couch is his favorite place right now.ย 
Today began the appointment process. He has 4 this week. Oooooof! But we're doing it. His buddies have been great. So far so good!! I feel so happy to have my family whole again!ย 
Ill do some updates later....right now the 3 year old mini tristen is going through Tristens phone. Snap chatting... Whoooopsies!
Love, peace, and family!ย

Tristens question of the day!!! "Trauma, when can I go home??" That's my boy! Beating odds day by day! He is out of the scary woods but his recovery will be long and testing. This is only a hump in his road to direct him where he is needed. This boy WILL DO amazing things. His testiment in life starts now. His humor is back and he is taking it day by day. Negativity is not in his bubble which allows me to grow! Im learning too, this has been and is my worst nightmare. Watching him start to overcome a battle I myself would have been broken in?? Gives me strength! Everyone asks, "how are you even doing this?" My answer is, I have too! There is no time for me to allow him to see me down and out. He feeds off the emotion in the room. NOT ONCE has he mentioned sadness about his face and this thrills me. "Chicks dig scars, mom" yes babe, yes they do! I dont have to tell you how sweet this man child is. Just ask his real friends and his family. He hates being all jacked up on the meds and has made a decision for himself. He cut his doses in half so he can be awake when HIS people arrive. Its overwhelmingly beautiful! I cant get all rated R on you but believe me when I say..... HES BACCCCCK! Mentally! He can walk, talk with the left side of his face and you can see delight thru his eye, that he is still alive. Cause he shouldnt be! His angel will always be his angel. She saved him, comforted him and he will forever be grateful. As his mother, this lady and her husband will always be our family. She is part of his recovery. Thank you and bless you all for your support, words of encouragment and prayers. I will forever be grateful to his care team...which also includes YOU! -โค,MOM

Just got home from seeing Tristen! He is in such good spirits and actually pretty talkative. His swelling has gone down everywhere. He was doing his hand excercises as I got there. He has facial therapy exercises to work on. He will have another surgery tomorrow. He was given disheartening news that one of his favorite teachers Suz was in a fatal car accident last night, so that shook him a bit. The highlight of his day was being able to see his puppy that was brought up to the hospital. Yes, there was tears! I am so impressed with his outlook on things and his determination to buy a dirt bike so he can ride ASAP. 
The criminal detective team continues to do their job.....I am amazed at the things they are capable of doing, things I would have never thought of. His angel came to visit today, she brought her son and Tristen told him how his mom saved his life. 
I told Tristen that Joey was heading to Cali to qualify and  I told him Bobby and I might go down Friday night. He asked if he could go until he realized I was talking about two days from now. He followed it up with, I will be up for a road trip soon.
