Daddys Home!

I appreciate the warm welcome back. :)

So, one major thing that has been going on around here is that Tom has been home. For 5ish months. He had his furlough in August and we had an amazing trip down to Florida. He went back to work for a few days and got hurt Labor Day weekend. His squad was t-boned by a drunk driver. You'd be surprised how often it happens! And yes, he got the guy.

He hurt his back when they were hit and has been recovering ever since. He has done physical therapy and seen a few different doctors. He got an MRI and has a bulging disc in his back. He has been in constant pain for months and it hasn't been fun. He finally got a steroid shot 2 weeks ago and got some relief. He goes back to the doctor this week and may get cleared to go back to work. 

Of course, its awful he has been hurting for so long, but it has been amazing having him around. He is a hands on Dad and can do everything I can do. We haven't had to worry about being quiet while he sleeps all day, he hasn't had to miss any big events or birthdays, it has been heavenly. Additionally, he has been away from the danger of the job. The police in the media lately..particularly in Chicago..yeah. Im glad hes been home and avoided that mess.








Our world will be completely rocked when he goes back. We have gotten completely used to having our family together. The kids go nuts if he leaves to go to the store for 30 minutes. They are going to be devastated when he isn't around all the time. Ill be tough on me too, but I am so thankful for the time we've had together. He got furlough in May and September this year, so we can look forward to that.

Oh man. Sorry to hear your husband was injured. Luckily it has been a blessing and he isnt suffering too badly. It will be hard when he goes back for sure. My husband is training to be a DNR (Department of Natural Resources) police officer, he is excited I am scared to death. THe thought of him tracking down poachers who obviously could care less about the law to begin with and have guns loaded and ready scares me to death! You are so brave! It's so nice to see you posting again!
