Back in the Saddle Again

I had to take a break from blogging for a couple of days to get caught up on being home.  It’s sad when you can say you have to get used to being home again.  But it has been wonderful sleeping in my own bed.  Of course getting caught up meant doing some of my most favorite things in the world, like… unpacking, washing clothes, finding places to put everything we brought back, and getting into the normal day to day routine of Nicholas’ meds and therapy.  In that sense you get kindof of spoiled in the hospital because the nurses have to be responsible for that.  Nicholas seems to be about the same as he was when we left on Monday.  No real change.  We have to go back to Chapel Hill on Juy 3rd and then again on the 16th, so they are really keeping an eye on him. 

And poor Miranda gets around as bet she can on our little house on crutches, so now Nicholas gets to wait on her like she has waited on him for all these years.  I think she kindof likes that part. 😀  She has to go back to the orthopaedic doctor on the 17th of July for an xray that will determine if the cast can come off or if it has to stay on longer.  That visit will determine if she can go to camp or not. 😦  She isn’t happy talking about that.  We are just praying that she will be fine and the cast will come off and she can go.

I also have finals this weekend so I have my head in a book.  Then I have a loooong break until January.  This is my first break in 8 years of going to school.  No sure how I feel about that.

Thanks for checking in on us.  That’s pretty much all that’s going on here.  This week, I like boring…


We got home right at 7:30.  I thought Oscar was going to lick my face off.  He was soooo excited.  It feels good, but weird to be home.  I can’t wait to sleep in my own bed.

Miranda is all set with her cast and she says she can tell a major difference between this cast and the soft one.  It doesn’t hurt as bad and she can bend her knee.  She’s getting around a lot better too.

Now we have to unpack, go to the grocery store tomorrow, and try to get back in the swing of things.  Thanks again to all of you who have prayed and will continue to pray for us, who came to visit, mailed us cards everyday so we could have mail from home, and who come faithfully to read the blog.  We couldn’t do it without your support and God’s love.  It was a long 23 days.


The Latest on Nick

The docs came in and said that while the numbers are down, they thought that he would be fine to go home.  They really think that they have treated the infection and what’s going on now is just from the allergy flare up.  They are going to keep him on a dose of steroids and they want to increase his vest to three times a day, and they are going to see him back in the clinic on July 3rd..

So they are working on the paperwork to send him home…
