We are going home tomorrow! (Friday Update)

It’s hard to believe that one week ago today Jessica was out of surgery and just recovering and thankfully, tomorrow we are going home! jessicagiftsWe might need a boat to get home.  It’s suppose to get up to 60 degrees and after a couple feet of snow this past week, there will be LOTS of water!  I am not sure if they make  U-Hauls to go behind a boat  to get all our stuff home though!  Jessica was delighted with a very nice gift package from our church family ~ lots of little toys and games, stuffed animals, candy, etc.  Every since getting out of ICU she has gotten several gifts a day.  Thank you to so many of you!

We have an incredible church family ~ many who have helped in various ways from meals, to visiting with our children at home, bring diapers over so our daughter did not have to keep up with cloth diapers, phone calls checking up on them etc.

One family blessed Jessica with a brand new single bed/mattress set so she does not have to go up into her bunk bed. We were planning on doing this soon anyway, but just fast-forwarded it.  Another family got her new pillows.   We are so thankful for friends and family helping take care of so many details for us while we were away.

Her coumadin level was slightly low today, but they are going to count it as long as she is where she is suppose to be tomorrow morning, and we are counting on that!

Our last night here we are in a new room.  A new child was moved into our room and was throwing up (we think from surgery) and we just did not want to listen to that.  Thankfully, they wanted the room for a baby, because that room was close to the nurse’s desk.  Now we are down the hall with a large corner room with two sides full of windows.  We get quite a view.  There’s a tall tree filled with lights right outside of it.  So far there is no roommate, so it should be an extra quiet night!

I am not sure when we will be able to update tomorrow, but no news is good news.  We are so looking forward to reuniting our family.  We have so much to be thankful for ~ such a precious gift of life.  Thank you from the bottoms of all our hearts for your prayers and encouragements and holding us all up.  We are indeed blessed.
