This past week has been pure joy.
There is a part of me that still can't believe I am home. And another part that feels like I never left.
I've gotten to do almost everything on my list of things I wanted to do once I got home. I've slept in my own bed... and I must tell you, it is the MOST comfortable bed in the entire world. We have a memory foam topper and it's just Fabulous! I've even gotten to have a coke Slurpee (only one, since I've started my new health routine).
Noah has adjusted wonderfully. He's made such progress with his breathing and eating. He's finally on a good routine. He's even been sleeping through the night. Except for the midnight feeding I have to do to give him his last dose of meds. But I accidentally fell asleep early last night and didn't wake up to give it to him (I'm such a rookie) and he slept from 8pm to 8am. He's just an absolute angel.
Lilly has done even better. It's like the day we came home she switched back to being the Lilly I knew before we left for Denver. She hardly throws any tantrums, she's just as happy as can be. She's even sleeping in her own bed without waking up in the middle of night and she lays down and goes to sleep without me or Shane having to lay with her both for naps and bedtime. I'm just SHOCKED at how much she has changed. I was getting really worried that her sweet disposition was gone forever but it's back and I'm so glad.
I think about the people in Denver everyday though. I need to call them and see how everyone is doing. I've been wondering if Elmira's husband was able to get a Visa to come and see them. I also need to check in on Dason and Sabrya and see how they are (even though they went back home to Wichita). I've been staying in touch with Alison through email. Which is really nice. My heart just goes out to all the people at the RMH that I know still had tons of time left. The family that got our room when we left (since it's the largest room at the house) had no idea how long they had to stay. Their daughter had gotten her Heart Transplant in February I believe. They went home after 3 months and had been there the past 2 months or so because of rejection. And the rejection was so bad, they were discussing having to do another transplant. I can't even imagine having to go through all of that all over again.
But what ever the future holds, I am so grateful for all the blessing I have been given. I love my husband. I love my children. I love my Family. I love my Friends. And I Love my Heavenly Father, who has blessed me so much more than I deserve.
