Happy New Year!

It's 2013 and it's going to be a good year!

We got a fully equipped handicap van for Thomas and we are so excited! We thought we'd start by taking him somewhere for a short period of time to see how he did. Brian took him on his first outing to a shopping mall to do some Christmas shopping. The first thing Thomas wanted to do was have orange chicken at Panda Express!!! 

Since his first trip went so well, we planned to bring him home for Christmas and/or his birthday but he had to go to a wound care facility, Kindred Hospital, to treat a pressure wound on his foot. He was there about three weeks; over the holidays and his birthday. He was released to go back to Villa Las Palmas on Monday, January 7th. We are now planning to bring him to the house for a couple hours. We have to make sure he will be ok with just visiting and then returning to Villa.

We are really looking forward to this new chapter in our lives!
