We made it...


(our private plane)
Thank you all for your encouragement and prayers! We made it safely to WA! Ben did an amazing job with the whole transfer! He took a few naps on the plane and then got to take in some fresh Colorado air when we stopped for fuel, food and a potty break! We got to his new rehab facility about 3ish and he was out like a light by 6pm but it was really 9pm for us! Ben was up for a bit this morning working with OT, up for a bit with me and has been sleeping ever since! He has some jet lag, time changes, meds all wonky and all new faces to get to know! He is awake as I type and staring out the window to take in new scenery! He was not able to see out his windows in his old room so he is taking it all in! We are very blessed that he gets a room to him self! I have already put up all his decor and am awaiting more art work and photos to come! More updates to come but just wanted to let you all know that we are safe and sound!
