JER'S COMING HOME!!!!!!!

I got the best birthday present EVER today.

Jer's coming home!!

He'll be coming back tomorrow, and they're bringing him here to Washington state so we're not moving!

Muscle grafts aren't necessary-- much less muscle damage than I was originally told, and he'll walk again!

They're going to wait for some more skin to grow before they do the reconstructive surgeries, so they'll do those here.

He does have a fractured spine, but it's a pretty minor fracture and by the time he's up and moving again it should be completely healed.

I spoke to him for about an hour. He's in good spirits and is giving me book requests for when he gets back-- I'm going to nix my trip to Pike Place and run to the bookstore instead.

I'm off to start getting ready for his return. This birthday present totally tops the goat.

Happy Birthday to me- can't WAIT to see him again!

Happy birthday!!! And I'm so thankful that Jer's on his way home. I'm so amazed at how God has worked through all the details, and is bringing your hubby home, and he's not in too bad of shape (relativly speaking, of course!).
