I am sitting watching Frank warming up with the boys for soccer practice. This is part of Tank’s journey home.
He is laughing, falling to the ground, chasing balls and shooting goals.
Who knew we could be here almost four months ago when I was wondering if we would ever be able to wean Frank off of the vent. We were wondering if he would ever walk or talk again. The sun is setting, Frank is tired, but the play goes on. I am thankful for this moment.
