Tyson – Part 5

Well we’ve got some good news folks. Tyson is back in Texas at Baylor Dallas! We can already tell his care is going to be a lot better here. He has a semi-private room but no room mate yet. The doctors don’t anticipate him being here long. They’re going to teach him to get around on his own in a wheelchair so that he can go home with mom. He’ll probably be in a wheelchair for a month or two until they take out the hardware and then more rehab. He can’t bear weight on his left leg at all and his right is supposed to be for pivoting only to get in and out of his chair/bed. He’s in pretty good spirits and I can go take him Chic-Fil-A and Chipotle so I’m sure that will make him feel even better. Mom called this morning and they were dressing him for Physical Therapy. He’s supposed to go the PT three times a day here so he’ll be tired but well on his way to getting better. I’m sure I’ll get more info monday but that’s all I have for now.

    I miss the two of you so much! Give each other a hug for me…Wish I was closer to keep Ty company and help him eat Chipotle! :)
    Josh, thank you so much for keeping everyone up to date on Ty. You are an awesome brother!
    I love you.

    Wow, Josh. I had no idea. I just decided to get on here today to see how your designs were going and came across this. I adore both you and Ty and am so happy to hear that he’s going to come out of this relatively ok. This was posted some time ago, so I’m hoping he’s doing much better now. I still send my love and wish nothing but better days ahead.
