A week ago Thursday was a huge day of jubilation for the German and Rostorfer families. After nine long scary weeks — two in Toledo, three in Lima, and four at Dodd Hall Rehab Center in Columbus — we were able to bring my son-in-law, Scott German, home! The large portion of bone that was removed from his skull back on Aug. 16 still needs to be replaced. He’s got months of therapy to do as well. For all he’s been through, we celebrate how far he’s come. If you see a 6-foot, 3-inch-tall, really skinny guy walking around wearing what looks like a football helmet — which has to be worn to protect his brain where there’s no bone — please give him your smile and a thumbs up. Do we wish this horrible accident never happened? You bet. Do we appreciate what everyone has done? An even louder “you bet” goes out from all of us! All the prayers, the work you did for the benefits, the support of those events, the monies for food and gasoline for trips back and forth to be with him, and the offers of friends to home-sit with him around our work schedules, and the meals brought in since he’s been home is so appreciated. We’ll never be able to thank you all enough.
