My Birthday Wish Come True...

This has been David's bedside crew this week...Mary, mom, grandma and Laurie. Taylor took the picture a few days ago while in SLC. Today was a wonderful day...a great birthday wish come true! He passed all but the thin liquid swallowing test, they removed the PICC line, he was able to do an assisted transfer into a wheelchair and......(drumroll please).... he's out of the hospital! Because he is out of the hospital sooner than expected, Aspen Ridge West on 53rd isn't open yet. He is at Aspen Ridge on Winchester and 10th East. It's a beautiful facility, which my Grandpa Jack was in after his car accident in 2005. There aren't many beds, so he was lucky to get in. He is still on oxygen, but otherwise his labs are good and he doesn't need IVs anymore.

I'm almost ashamed of that picture of me.. no not really =] thank goodness for all the help and prayers.. he's finally out!!!
I honestly think the thing that made him better the most was his positive attitude, he named his leg "his little friend that will help me get moving again"

Dad is amazing!
