This morning we drove to the hospital for our our first outpatient therapy and wound care. We got there at 8 am, and left at 1 pm (5 long hours of wound care, physical therapy, & cast making and sawing). While we were there, they took out the feeding tube, so now Max is totally wireless!
Up until now, the doctors have wanted to see Max’s skin grafts & burns every day to track their progress and healing. After looking at them today, they told us they only need to see them once a week!
On the drive home, Max was quiet for a long time. Then he said, “I’ve been thinking a lot about the accident. If I could go back in time and change it, I wouldn’t. I’ve gained more than I’ve lost.”
Maybe being whole isn’t about living the life you expected. Maybe it’s about loving what is.
“Let the kaleidoscope of life’s circumstances be shaken, again and again, and the “true believer of Christ” will still see “with the eye of faith” divine design and purpose in his life.” – Neal A. Maxwell (Full Speech)
