Home Again, Home Again (for a day)

Ken earned himself a day pass. He's coming home tomorrow for most of the day. We are all very excited.

Had a Team Meeting today with Dr. Kazmi (head of physical medicine), Holly (casemanager), Mallory (speech), and Joni (PT), his OT was off. I am glad he is working with all of them. They all seem very invested and good at their jobs. Everyone had great things to say about his progress. They are very pleased.

We even got a date for his skull to be put back in, December 6th. Ken and I are both having some intense anxiety about that, or at least anticipating anxiously that we will have anxiety about it. It is a relatively easy procedure, they say. I giggle anxiously as they say it. It means going back to MGH, can anybody say PTSD? I can, it's Massachusetts General Hospital.

Love to you all!


  1. Jamie and Ken, I can only imagine how excited the two of you must be for tomorrow! Yahoo! Enjoy the time at home. Love, Maddie

    I hope you still break out the helmet once your skull mends. It is pretty bitchin with all the love stickers on it.

    Such a nice thing getting back in your own space for a while. Hope it brings all good things.
