After five long months and multiple surgeries, Tripp Halstead, a Winder toddler seriously injured in October when a tree limb fell and struck him in the head, is back home.
Tripp came home Friday, according to a post on the Facebook page where the family provides updates on his condition
"I held my breath till we actually walked through the door at moms house. Tripp has been perfect. He slept the whole way home. Then woke up when we got here," Stacy Halstead, Tripp's mother, wrote in an update on Friday, March 29.
Saturday night, Stacy Halstead said Tripp is doing awesome and shared this update:
We were so worried to bring him home and he has totally impressed us. He is still sleeping a lot and very stiff but that is ok, these are things we expected. We were mostly scared he would start storming again or the shunt mess up, so far neither has happened. We have his follow up appt in 2 weeks. My goal is to not see the hospital tilthen and hope it will be a great checkup. Thank you for all the prayers for our baby and for me and Bill. Since Tripp is doing so well we decided it was ok to leave him for a few hours with his wonderful Nana while we came to the Gwinnett Gladiators hockey game to say thank you for all the support Tripp had received. We hope to have Tripp out and about next month. Try to get a new routine established in our everyday life. Thank you again for loving my sweet baby. Couldn't of made it this far without all the support.
