So I am happy to say that this will be the last post on the blog. Paul came home yesterday and is starting to settle in. Now the real work starts but it is hard to believe only five weeks ago this process began. The goal was to untether the spinal cord and hopefully eliminate the spasticity and ideally the pain too. The spinal cord is completely untethered and the spasticity and pain are greatly reduced. The doctors have told us that the healing could take about a year before they make any definitive pronouncements but the initial results are very positive. It is amazing to see the progress Paul makes from one day to the next. I know Paul is very grateful to all of the people at NIH and Adventist Rehab who made this a reality. He is especially appreciative of his friends and their support.
