11-08-2003, Day 239, Week 34 (Saturday)


 Robbie finally came home Wednesday from his almost 8 month stay in the area hospitals. It is very good to have him home. It has been a really hectic two weeks for us all to try and get everything here ready for him. We now have a hospital room in the house complete with all the equipment needed for his condition. We are starting to get into a routine to care for him and he looks very comfortable at home. Marleen has learned to care for his wounds on his leg and stump and has been doing a real good job. The wounds are healing great. We also have a home nurse that has been coming by every morning to check on Robbie and to help train Marleen. Now we put Robbie in his wheel chair and go for walks around the block. We plan on increasing the distance as time goes by. Robbie is now resting very comfortably in his bed.

Please feel free to drop by and visit with Robbie and us anytime between noon and 8pm. We enjoy the company and sure Robbie will too.

Again our address is:

2200 Tree House Lane

Plano, Tx 75023

Love to You All,

John, Marleen and Karen Grinnell
