Update March 20th

After two months in the hospital and several weekend day and overnight passes Chris came home on March 11, 2008. We are happy to be in the same home together. We spent the first few days at home together with a few visitors, but mostly spent time together. This week we started having home visiting therapists and medical appointments. Chris was evaluated at the Children's Spine Clinic at Shriner's in Sacramento. He was accepted and we have follow up appts in May and September. Since Chris is only two months out from his injury, there is still initial healing that has to take place. We are encouraged by this.

Chris seems to be experiencing good pain control and he has acupuncture and massage 2-3 times a weeks to help with pain. His attitude is great and we are all extremely appreciative of all the support and prayers and love.
