Today Taylor got her feeding tube removed which makes her tube free for the first time since the day this journey started. Yippee! To round out the day Taylor and I finished some basic training for car transportation and wheelchair handling. These events are preparation for when Taylor is discharged from the hospital and moves back home to complete her rehabilitation.
Taylor also has a lots of extra care givers to help her around for the next few days. This includes her brother, his friend Arielle, Taylor’s friend Leilah, Taylor’s Mom, and me. Taylor is enjoying the company and the build up to being discharged. Just a few more weeks to go.
My Dearest Taylor,
I am always happy to hear about your progress and I know you will continue to do so. Bryson has been writing in the Mad Libs book you gave him for Christmas. He absolutely loves it!
Today,we went to see the Colonel’s Review of Trooping of the Colour, a full dress rehearsal for the Queen’s birthday parade. We got heavily rained on and very wet, so we ended up leaving early, even though we had ticketed seats in the stands. It was still good that we went…..
Lots of love,
Taylor — we are so proud if you and excited!! We LOVE you and can’t wait to see you soon. XOXO
We are so amazed by your progress Taylor. We check in to see how it’s going all the time and enjoy hearing all the good news about you. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Love from the Houston Shaws
Sandy, Rob, Garrett, David and Mackenzie
John, Taylor’s continual progress astounds me. In the early days, I never would have believed she’d eventually come even 20% as far as she has so far. Your and Kit’s determination launched her on this journey and all your hard work is paying off. I am thrilled for Taylor!
Wow, this is bit news that leaving the rehab hospital is so near.
