We're Home

Today we finally made the trip home! Yay! However, it was not without it's challenges. As soon as they discharged us and we signed the papers, Nathan threw up. We literally had his shoes and clothes on and were about to put his coat on. He was crying the whole time we were getting him ready to go but we weren't sure why. Maybe he felt sick or maybe he was tired and his crying led to his throwing up. At any rate, we were told to wait an hour and see how he did. After the hour was up and he seemed fine, we made our way home in the snow.

Before we got home, we had a couple perscriptions to fill. Then we went home and after dinner, the home care nurse came and showed us how to administer his IV medicine. At that point, we realized that Nathan also now has a fever! We need to monitor him but if it doesn't go away, we need to call his doctor. Richard says it feels like deja vu all over again. I said that we couldn't make this stuff up. Please pray that his fever subsides and that he starts to feel better. I don't want to believe that as soon as we're released from the hospital that we need to take him back. Of course, if that is what needs to be done, we will do it but we were so excited to get him home we hope he gets better and we can stay!

Thanks for all the prayers and encouraging words! Will keep you posted.
