We're Home

Ryan and I got home a few hours ago. He had a good night last night. I ended up staying in the hotel because he was doing so well, so I had a good night too! All the bandages came off this morning and Ryan's incisions look really good. Very swollen and sore, but looking good! Ryan was discharged around 10am and we headed home. About an hour into the drive Ryan's pain really started to kick in. He had only taken Tylenol and that wasn't a good idea.
Now that we're home he's back on Percocet and sleeping soundly. McKenna's feeling better and sleeping right now. Abby spent the night throwing up last night, so she's downstairs on the basement couch sleeping soundly. Christian's watching TV and I'm taking a deep breath!
I'm glad this is over. Time to move on to the next thing. Emma's going to get tubes in her ears on the 21st of this month, so I guess that's our next big thing!

Thanks for praying for Ryan. His recovery has gone much better than expected so far and I know that that is solely an answer to prayer. Ryan actually told me last night (while he was on prescription pain meds. keep that in mind) that he prefers giving marrow over going to the dentist! In other words, it just hasn't been that bad!

Be praying for the patient today! Today is the start of a new beginning for her. Just pray that her body accepts these new stem cells. We will get an update on her in a couple of months, when they know whether or not the transplant is going to work. I'll be sure to let you know when we hear something!

Thanks for praying us through this!

McKenna is so cute in the bumbo and the box. Don't throw away that box Christian and Mckenna will be very very unhappy. I cannot wait to see you at Thanksgiving. Aunt Angel
