Ezra has been doing great! He is feeling much more like his normal self. His headache has finally started to go away. We went to therapy for the first time on Wednesday, we originally had to see three different therapists, but two of them passed him off on his first appointment. Now if we can just get through speech therapy we should be good to go!

Ezra kind of had a rough day today. He's sick of just sleeping, we've tried to explain that it's good for him right now, I don't think he buys it. He was more active today and it totally wiped him out. He wants to get back to normal so bad, we keep telling him that he is going to have to be patient.

After a bumpy ride in the RV Ezra finally made it to Twin Falls, We will be staying with Dave and Shanna until he is feeling better. When we told Ezra that he was going to be able to leave the hospital he said, "aren't you supposed to feel better when you leave the hospital?" He also said that he wouldn't mind driving the RV back to Twin. ( :

He's still feeling pretty crummy and we've got a little bit of a road a head of us before he's back to his normal self. We are just happy that he is doing as well as he is and he's happy to finally be in a familiar place. We start therapy next week.

This is the life flight paramedic that took care of Ezra on the way to the hospital, he was the nicest guy. When Shanna and I first got to the hospital he came and talked to us. He said that Ezra put up a pretty good fight on the way to Boise.

Ezra is going to be able to leave the hospital tomorrow. Luckily, they said that we will be able to do out-patient therapy in Twin Falls. He has been able to go on some walks around the hospital and has done really well. The doctors and nurses are all surprised at how quickly he is progressing. Thanks again!

Ezra was released from the ICU yesterday and is now on the neuro floor. His motor skills are good, and he's been working on some of his cognitive skills. We are very optimistic, he seems to be getting better everyday. Thank you for all your prayers and support!

This past weekend we had quite the experience. We were almost half way home from Montana when we found out that I-15 was closed! We asked the officer if there was any other way and he said, "you better just find a hotel, this road might be closed for a few days." If it had not been for the armed police officer standing guard Ezra would have braved the icy roads anyway.
We decided on another rout that would bring us home to Rexburg. Our ride home ended up being pretty exciting, we passed two ghost towns. In the end we added a few hours to our trip but Ezra got us all home in one piece.

Ezra's Quote of the Day

There's no time to stop and smell the roses, just grab one and go!

Well we're about a month into school and we are ready to quit! Just Kidding! School is good but we are very busy! I paint all day and Ezra does accounting til he can't take it anymore- don't ya love college.
Actually, we have done some really fun stuff: demolition derby, ice caves, kung fu panda, rodeo, Lord of the Rings marathon. Now we are just trying to figure out what we are going to be for Halloween.
