We are home.....

Sam is fine and healing nicely. We were sent home on oral antibiotics--but we need to watch Sam closely. There were some Docs who recommended that we stay--but our main Doc said that they would just be watching him on the oral meds to see how he fares--and that we can do that at home.

If there is any additional sign of infection--we will be admitted to the hospital for a week of IV antibiotics--so for now--we wait and pray that he will continue healing and that God will watch over him and protect him from any further infection.

It has been a long four days--we are weary, but grateful. I have so much more to say--but for now--I am going to enjoy my kids, my home, and my husband. We are ready to eat ice cream and watch a movie--and try to feel normal once again!

Thank you for all of the support--it is felt through all the e-mails, facebook messages, phone calls--we are so fortunate to have so many that care so much for our beautiful little boy!

I was so relieved to hear that you're back home and Sam didn't need more surgery! I can't begin to imagine how difficult this journey has been for your family. We're praying that the antibiotics were well and you can continue recovering at home!

I know all too well that complication and how scary it can be but I also know who is in the business of healing! I am praying for your sweet boy and that you have no more concerns with his graft sites and that those antibiotics work quickly.
