“What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
As many of you already know, Greg is officially outpatient! After eleven hours of appointments, last minute check-ups, and being quizzed on all his medications, Greg’s doctors deemed him fit to leave at 7:00pm on Monday. With Greg’s sister, Eva, brother-in-law, Pat, and three nephews in town, we had a nice celebration at the Fisher House, where Greg will be staying during his rehabilitation at the Center for the Intrepid (CFI).
Greg has joined the Warrior Transition Battalion (WTB) that is located on post, and designed for wounded warriors who are either from Fort Sam Houston, or who were injured overseas. This means that though Greg was JUST released from the hospital, he is still required to attend 7:30am formation Monday through Friday, for accountability purposes. As his non-medical assistant, this means I too have to attend! Beginning Tuesday, we were at formation, where we were given Greg’s schedule for the day. This week we are required to attend various appointments with finance, health services, family services, the WTB, the VA, and all other programs available to Greg during this process.
