Oh How I Missed My Bed!

I am sitting on MY couch tonight. There are no beeping pumps, no loud phones, and most exciting.... no nurses waking us up multiple times every night! We will all get to sleep ALL night and there will be no surgeons at my door at 6 am! Oh how I love home!

Last night we looked at the CT scan images. The drain was able to resolve 3 of abscesses in Mr 10's gut. The fourth one is still there but is much smaller. All of the doctors were very happy with the results and with  Mr 10's healing.

This morning they pulled out the drain. Mr 10 was non to happy about the process but after a few tears it was done and we were ready to go HOME!!!!

I am so happy to be home! Mr 10 is happy to be home. Makenzie is happy to be home and my big boys were so surprised to see all of us hanging out in the family room when they got home from school this afternoon.

It was a quiet afternoon. My mom came over and made dinner, the boys hung out together, we played a few games of cards, and by 8:30pm all of the kids were tucked into their beds. Well kind of........

As we were getting ready for bed Mr 10 began to get mopey. When I asked him what was wrong he told me with tears in his eyes that he wasn't used to sleeping alone and that he didn't want to sleep in his room.

Being the softy that I am, there is now an extra little man sleeping in my bedroom on his mattress on the floor. Man do I ever love that kid!!!

As much as I love being at home and as many issues that I have had with the hospital staff over the last 3 weeks there is still something comforting about being at the hospital with your sick child. Tonight I am so in love with being home but there is part of me that is scared. Mr 10 was so sick. We came home once before and that did not end well. Tonight I am asking for continued prayers for healing. Please pray that the drain did its trick and that Mr 10 will only continue to get better from here on out. Pray that his body will kick this infection once and for all!

I think it is now time to go sleep in my OWN BED for the first time in almost 3 weeks! Goodnight!

Believe... Prayer Works!
