Discharge Day

I am happy and AJ is really happy!  We are going home today.  We removed his G-tube last night and left it out for four hours in the hope that it would close up a bit.  It did close some but we are still left with one open area that should not be there.  We have a few more ideas in mind and we will be back to the clinic on Friday to see how it is progressing or should I say digressing?

AJ started an oral antibiotic this morning and so far he has not had any negative side effects.  We hope it will continue to fight the infection.  The IV medication is not available in an oral so we had to switch to a new one.  We are so thankful for the medical advances that God has blessed us with.  Just a few years ago AJ would not have survived the same infection.  God is so good to us.  AJ has continued to feel great through this entire infection.

Last night God allowed me to meet with an old friend.  She needed some encouragement and it was so great to spend time with her.  Please pray for K as God is moving in her life and she is looking for Him.

2 Corinthians 2:14
Thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us 
in triumphal procession, and through us spreads 
the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.

What a blessing it has been to share the goodness of our God while here in the hospital.  He opened multiple doors to testify of his goodness.

Thanks again for all your prayers along this journey.  We are looking forward to "resting" at home.
