We have a discharge date!

Aidan will be discharged on April 17th. This means a week longer in therapy, but this is actually a good thing. We found out that Aidan will begin serial casting therapy tomorrow and the later discharge date allows them to properly assess him during this therapy.

On the HBOT front, they are checking with Risk Management regarding the ability to have us take him out of the hospital for therapy. Again, if it doesn't happen, we'll simply start when he is discharged.

Also, we have been assured that all the equipment we will need (save the medical car seat) will be ready for us when we get home. If the medical car seat isn't here by the time he gets home, we will buy a regular car seat based on our therapists' recommendations and use it until the medical car seat gets here. Medical car seats are different in that they have higher weight limits and other special modifications for added stability. They are also quite bulky and even a bit heavy.

We have two important meetings coming up. The first will be a meeting with the vendor regarding getting Aidan fitted for his car seat and wheelchair. The other is with the private nursing group that will provide home nursing care after he goes home. More to come later today!

I'm glad to hear you have a discharge date. Even though it will be hard bringing Aidan home, it will also be a huge blessing to have your family all together under the same roof again.

Love in Christ,
