Breaking Tom out

Tom made it through the week at Fairlawn. The physical therapist and occupational therapist have cleared Tom to go home. He can walk, eat, and do all his activities of daily living himself. He is staying at Fairlawn at least through Tuesday when we go see the plastic surgeon to see when he will have his skin graft surgery. They are keeping him at the rehab hospital just because his wound is so extensive and changing its dressing is really involved. Tom spirits remain good which is half the battle. He has had a lot of visitors in between his therapies and it makes his days fly by. Yesterday the ladies (Hannah and Caitlyn) and I took Tom "out on pass" for a few hours. We took him to Hannah's soccer game, followed by a trip to Dunkin Donuts for Coolattas. We also stopped at CVS to buy a beard trimmer since Tom is growing out his "playoff beard" since the Sharks are in the AHL playoffs. He looks rather handsome with it :-) I have been crazy since returning back to work so finding time to write has been tough. I will certainly keep you all updated on what the plastic surgeons have to say. Hope everyone is well.
