Goodbye SickKids!

Saturday 10:00am

Two thumbs up to leaving SickKids!

What an incredible journey these past three weeks have been.  On Thursday, Jack was transferred over to Bloorview Rehab Centre and has done well with the adjustment.  So well in fact that they have let him come home for the weekend!

I brought Jack home yesterday afternoon and he was thrilled to be home and rest in his own room with Christopher by his side.  He will return to Bloorview Monday morning and stay Monday-Friday for the next 6-8 weeks.  While there, he will go to school and have intensive speech, occupational and physical therapy.

So today Jack and Christopher are watch “Alvin and the Chipmunks” together and next up is “Cloudy with a chance of meatballs”!  It is so nice to have a bit of a sense of normalcy for a change!

    This is truly wonderful news, and while you still have a ways to go, you are doing incredibly well – all of you.

    Do those meatballs come with ice-cream? 🙂
