We enjoyed our first meal as a family in over 8 weeks. It was quiet and peaceful. It is so nice to have him home-yet ever present in our minds that all of our lives, (especially Jeremy's), have changed forever. Simple things are suddenly next to impossible and somehow we manage them. I have a new perspective on so many things but above all I realize how important family and friends are-it sounds sappy but it is true. Thank you to all of our family and friends. We could not have come this far without your support and will continue to need it in the months to come. As I have said before, things can change in an instant. Cherish what you have-and make the best of the changes that come your way.
Don't hesitate to call Jeremy-he is now in charge of his own visiting schedule. Mom and Dad are glad for him to have visitors, however, they would appreciate visits being arranged with Jeremy in advance instead of people just showing up at the door. It is their home. I will still update the blog-but will stop doing it so frequently. Look for updated information on Wednesday evenings-I'll try to get it on by 10:00 but as you can see by looking at the time this was written it doesn't always work that way-so maybe check Thursday mornings.....
Happy Holidays to each of you!
Hope to see you soon.

You know we are right across the street and you can call us at any time for any thing!
I figured it was time for a Jedi Quote;
The dark side's influence is stronger in moments of weakness. Do not let yourself be distracted.

Welcome back to your old home!! It goes without saying that your wonderful family is thrilled to have you back to stay for a while. As a parent, I can only imagine what they went through. They were amazing. Those of us who are friends are still overwhelmed by what you went through and how you are doing so much better than we, and even the doctors expected. You continue to be my role model for survival, courage and fortitude. Go Jeremy!!!!
Have a great holiday at home!!
When the time comes for you to move on to your house and them maximum rehabilitation and prostheses, I know you will continue to progress at light speed. If you do have a few setbacks, I know you will continue to overcome them and move on. Remember that I am here for you. I will be there when you call and I hope to be there to assist you on a "visiting Ron" basis. I cannot be the substitute for a really cute visiting nurse, but I will be available when you need me.
Give my best to your parents. Your survival and progress is the best Christmas present they will ever get.
How wonderful! Christmas with your family. The Fuehner family will be thinking ofyou as we celebrate in SE Indiana.
God Bless you and your loving and devoted family.
I miss you and I wish I could talk to you.
You are in my thoughts.
