Michael had a post-discharge checkup today with the doctor, and everything looked good. He still has a couple of tiny pockets of abscess (doesn't that sound gross?) left that need to break up, and he's still feeling very weak. As he said earlier today, "I'm feeling at about 60%, which is a whole lot better than I was." These next few days will be a challenge for him, simply because he's going to have to chill out and not overdo it. We'll have a final checkup with the doctor next week.
I feel like I'm still processing everything that has happened in the past week or so. Coming home yesterday was a bit overwhelming for all of us, including Phoebe. We're definitely still in adjustment mode, and I think the processing will come a little later. Either way, I know that a lot of people have been checking in and praying for Michael, so I wanted to continue to keep all of you updated.
We have been ridiculously, obnoxiously blessed over this past week, too. As we reflect, I know that the Lord's hand in all of this will continue to become even more evident than it already has.
