My parents live in a really great community that really rallied around us. And they—this was sort of before extreme home makeover and all that used to be on air—and they did our own little mini extreme home makeover and renovated our house, my room and bathroom. And we already had a ranch, so there weren’t a ton of accommodations to make, but I mean, we got a whole new bathroom, and a door, an exterior door added to my room so I could get out easily on the ramps and all that, which was great. But also, before I got out of Children’s, we had gone back to the middle school with recreational therapists, and kind of walked through things.  And so, I got out of the hospital on October 30th and I went back to school on like November first or whatever that Monday was.
