I realized today that I've kind of left you all hanging! We are trying to get adjusted to being back at home. Being gone for 3 weeks really puts a damper on things. I can probably speak for everyone in the family when I say that my emotions have gone through a whirlwind the last month.
Cody is home and doing GREAT! He still gets tired more quickly then he used to. He went fishing Saturday with Dad! He was so glad to be out and get to go fishing again. Fishing is something we do quite a bit and for Cody to be able to head back out there is an abslute blessing. Last Sunday our community had a benifit for Cody and our family. I am so proud to be from this town. I could not ask for better neighbors, church family, friends, and community than what we have. The support that showed up was absolutely amazing. We are so blessed to be from Medford, Ok.
Yesterday was Mother's Day. I think for our Mom it was a little more special. Having Cody with us and home meant to world to hear. No other gift would even compare. We spent the day yesterday as a family. We went to church, and hung out at our house playing Wii. Vanessa's mom,Sarah, came over and cooked enchiladas. The best we've ever had! Of course it was what Bubba requested!
As Cody's older sister and the peacemaker of the siblings, I've always been in the middle of Jessi and Cody's quarrels (and let me tell you, there were TONS!!). But we have not been closer than we are now. I'm still dealing with things that affected me when Mom walked in my front door and told me Cody had been electocuted. I can't look at my front door and not remember that scene. 30 seconds don't go by that I'm not replaying Thursday, April 15, 2010 in my mind. The day they told us that our Bubba had no brain activity and he was giving him until the next Monday to make improvements. Saturday Mike, Ady, and I went to Chickasha to watch Mike's brother Nate pitch his last college baseball game. As we were driving we passed a sign that said Binger, my heart sank and my stomach hurt like crazy. 4 miles south of Binger is where the accident happened. I cried to myself and prayed hard that God would heal my heart and give me the peace I need. My heart still hurts at those memories, but then Bubba walks into my kitchen and my heart smiles! I cannot thank God enough for the gift he has given us. He has a plan with Cody. We just have to sit back and watch what it is!
We are still waiting to hear about Cody's outpatient therapies. Some people that we needed to speak to have been on vacation. So hopefully we'll hear something this week.
I didn't mean to stop posting. Honestly, there has been so much to do around here that the computer is the last thing on my mind. Sorry! Once Cody's starts therapies I will post about how he's doing. We thank you for your prayers and ask that you continue to pray for Cody's complete healing.
