Busy day ahead.

It's so special to watch each of the girls walk over to Wyatt's hospital bed along the wall in our living room, lean over the rail, their arms in a hugging form, barely touching him so not to wake him up, they say "Goodbye. I love you. I'll see you when I get home." This happens each and every time they leave the house without him. This morning as they left for school was no different. We arrived home last evening once again, with another hospital stay officially behind us. A quick one (relatively speaking), lasting only 5 days.

Wy came home with three additional medications to be infused multiple times a day and a med schedule that needs sorted out desperately. We should be seeing our infusion nurse at some point today to draw labs, as his clotting times (PT and INR, specifically) were prolonged more yesterday than they were when he was first admitted, with no sign as to why. Which was a bit concerning. They loaded him up with big doses of vitamin K before we left, hoping that may bring them closer to normal. The hospice nurse will be visiting this morning to catch up on the changes that took place. And I have bags and boxes of medical supplies needing to be put away, among the typical household "chores" that are waiting for my time and attention. It looks to be a busy day, at home.

  1. Oh, I think of you all so much...

    And those hugs, those arms in hugging form, not touching so as not to wake -

    Your children are the dearest, dearest people. I love hearing about them.

    So glad you are home - and I know all too well that does not mean the battle ceases.

    Praying and pulling for you here,
