The doctors dropped some science, or news rather, on us a few minutes ago: Beckett will need to stay another 2 weeks.
It’s hard to swallow emotionally; but logically it makes sense. A month seems like a long time, but in the grand scheme of life, the 2 additional weeks of intense PT and OT in the hospital will lead more quickly to his recovery.
And right now, this whole thing has to be about Beckett and getting him back to the place where he can function normally in daily life – getting dressed, brushing his teeth, eating, playing and running like a healthy 6-year-old boy.
Time to lock in; and bear down. At least we have a time frame to wrap our minds around. At least we know what we’re in for.
A month in the hospital. That’s like 1/72nd of Beckett’s entire life. Ucky, yucky, glucky, blucky.
I hear Beck had a blast at the Arizona Science Center today; I’ll fill y’all in when I get the details from Heidi.
