You all rock! The thoughts, prayers, love, well wishes etc. are working their magic.
You amazed Dr. Ben today. While standing bedside with one hand on Scott's sheath site (this was during the "cool down" period), he decides to check the blog on his BlackBerry. He was so impressed to see all the comments you guys had left after my 10am post. Scott and I wouldn't be where we are tonight without all of you. You, our friends, you, our family and you, our doctors. Does anyone know a more powerful version of the word grateful? Because that's it.

Here's a peek at what Scott was up to this afternoon



You could say that Scott was quite happy to be really eating again but that would be an understatement.

More rest ahead for Scott. We'll be trying to get him up and moving in the next couple of days. Scott is terrified. He's totally over being flat on his back (can't blame him it's been 7 days) but he's totally scared that if he tries to move everything is going to fall apart on him. We'll take it slow and I'll use some of the comments as incentive to get his butt in gear.
Scott's foot - what can I say about Scott's foot? While it looks better today than yesterday we are still quite unsure on what is going to happen with it. There are numerous different scenarios. We just have to wait and see, particularly when we get him up and moving.
Scott's mental state - this afternoon was much better. We changed up some of his pain meds and Mark S and I are working on a plan to help keep Scott sane. It involves movies, a fan and lots of Single Malt Scotch (just kidding about the scotch Dr. Ben). I'm hoping I don't end up back at the hospital tonight to help Scott cope. If he needs me I'm there no questions asked but I'm hoping he doesn't need me - know what I'm saying?

I got more time with Kate tonight and I got some delicious homemade empanadas (shout out to the baby brother and sister in law). The empanadas were on top of Kathy's (she was one of our fantastic nurses at JRB during our 08 stay that for some strange reason still likes us) scrumptious banana bread. I'm so going to get fat with this stay.

Feeling the love!


PS Frama boys - I totally owe you a coffee cake. It can be a rental payment for keeping our Envoy for a week. Thanks again. Scott will be glad to know you're rooting for him.

PPS - I still totally have to get around to the "understanding history" post. I'm working on it.

Love it all! The pics look terrific (they certainly offer a wide variety of food). Scott, we are all so glad to hear things went smoothly, you are one tough guy! We will check in tomorrow, as I know there will be no posts tonight and everyone will get some sleep.
Love you all

WOW! Scott you look amazing! So happy that things are turning around.

Just to give you a tid bit of my night. I sat in a class for 4 hours that should of only taken an hour. My arse is asleep n I am tired. What is it about professors and being able to talk? i could send him your way Scott, you would be so ready to get up n walk just to avoid his bantering.

on to the good stuff..... STEPHANIE PASSED DRIVERS ED bet you r glad you r there n we r here huh? lol

Brandon has no signs of damage from the wrestling incident (bloody nose) and wrestles again friday.

Brent is lounging enjoying his lay off. yep that's it for him lol oh and playin Mr. Mom

I can not wait to post this to fb. You would not believe how many people you have pulling for you that you have never met. I was stopped twice leaving work today just so people could ask how you were. They all sent prayers and good thoughts and said to keep them posted. Proof there are good people still out there and that i know some of the best.

Ok so i know this is really long but I am just jabbery (probably not a word). Lots of love and more hugs. hoping for another peaceful night.

Scott, Scotty, Scotttay, My Boy... Way to go !
I'll be thinking of bordom busters. Peyton (almost 9yrs old) has a ton of shit to keep his overactive brain busy. I know Once a boy ~ always a boy. If Mark brings in model airplanes, They'll quickly move you to your own room once they see a 6'7" man with awesome sound effects having moch moments and sound barrier explosions. The other patients will freak & think their delusional. He doesn't have too many games for his DS but dude he'll share. Movies - you just ask. Too bad Mark isn't into cards. you could start a euker turnement. I'll keep thinking.
Love you big time.

Oh, You look so good in the pictures. I have to tell that you got a better variety of food than your uncle. We went to Pizza Hut last night. It was good, but not as varied as what I see there. Amie now has a different car(Friday). It was the oddest thing. I took a van out to RPM for inspection, talking to the owner about Amie's car. They had examined it and it was toast. He had a 99 Monte Carlo. Long story short? Called unc. he drove it, called Amie( interested), Amie drove it yesterday. Then they are off to the bank,Paul will take it up Friday and exchange cars and go with her for license. You know nothing is ever signed correctly the first time. So, no boredom around here. You all know that we absolutely coudn't be any more pleased. Until you get home, of course. Love you all very much. Aunt Lynn and Unc.
