Now that we are breathing easier we wanted to share some pictures from the week. I just asked David what he wanted to say on the blog and he said "I love you, I love you, I love you!"
This is in the infamous picture that got me in trouble on the helicopter. I thought David looked so darn cute with his stick-on ear muffs that I whipped out my phone to take his picture. The sweet medics on flight quickly informed that flash photography is not allowed on flights. Just an FYI:)
Last Sunday Kyle pitched in the first game of the tournament and once again Sarah sent me a picture of Kyle on the mound in a hot, hot game!
This is our beloved Dr. Alisanski on her last day here with David. She is listening to David and he has his stethoscope listening to her. She has moved to Florida and we are so thankful for the compassion and care when she delivered really hard news to us back in November.
Today David has perked up so much so we have encouraged him to walk around to move some of that fluid around. We made him go to the cafeteria and here is a sweet picture of him and his Daddy:)
There is tons of construction going on around here and my kids found one of those "sticky pads" and they danced and giggled on that crazy thing!! Kyle yesterday said it so perfectly when he said "Mom David has lost his Davidness" and we are so thankful that David is getting back to himself:) Praise God!!!!
This weekend is going to be a weekend of rest and recuperating for our boy. The plan for now is that he will get his PICC line on Monday at 1:00. Sadly it is another surgery for him which makes me nervous, but it is a light sedation versus the general anesthesia that he was under Thursday. Monday he will also have a triple dose of chemo. We are working hard on resting, exercise, and good eating to prepare for Monday. We are nervous for Monday, but we have faith in our God as he works through his amazing team here. We hope he will be discharged by his birthday on Thursday:) Weeks ago when we were talking with him about his birthday he said he wanted to bring his friends here to the hospital for his party, but we hope that he is long discharged by Thursday:)
Dear friends, thank you so much for all the love and prayers this past week. We keep dreaming of the day this nightmare is behind us. We want to forget the details of the nightmare, but we want to always remember the lessons of God's faithfulness, compassion for others, and the Lord's unfailing mercy and grace. Happy Weekend from 7 West!
