We're Home!


Jordan started off slowly in the morning...but finally turned a corner with the nausea. By lunch time he was able to eat some soup and he got better and better from there.

They originally made the decision to keep him overnight because he was still in so much pain by early afternoon. However, once he was able to eat lunch and get his pain under control, he pushed himself to get up and walk around. He really wanted to go home!
Working hard to exercise his lungs

He was sitting up in a chair when I got back from grabbing some lunch and sat up the rest of the day! The 'helmet' is really annoying to him but he's not a complainer and is making the best of it.

By late afternoon, the nurse thought the plastic surgery team should re-evalute him to see if he could go home. Thankfully, they agreed that he had made a dramatic turn-around and said he could go. Woohoo!

Right before we left, he got a surprise from our church! Thank you so much for brightening his day with the balloon, Lego's and stuffed monkey!
Here he is...all tucked into his chariot and heading down to the car.

And here he is this morning with his doting sister who is helping him do Lego's. His siblings are surrounding him and wanting to play and help so he will have no lack of care at home. Right now they are all working hard on sympathy cards for my uncle.

I will be heading to my cousin's funeral Saturday morning. Jeff told me to go and that he could handle things at home for three days. I was so torn about what to do and Jeff made the decision for me--for which I am very grateful.
