Well…… after 6 weeks and 6 days, we’re heading home. Stef has really wanted to make it home and once again insurance has gotten in the way; so, after talking with Dr. Martin’s nurse, Shelly, for quite some time, meeting with a social worker, and meeting a different hospice team, we have made the decision to go home sometime tomorrow. I have to be honest that this makes me a little nervous just thinking of everything that will need to be done at home. However, even though I am worrying, already things are getting taken care of. Our church is providing meals 4 times per week and they are going to continue to have people sit with him in the evening so I can try to rest. So, while today was extremely stressful, I am still amazed by and so thankful for such a wonderful support system. I know we can’t see what’s ahead in the near future, but it is so comforting to know that people continue to pray for us for whatever may come.
I also wanted to send a big thank you to a special group of girls who took me to dinner for an early birthday dinner. It was so nice to get out and participate in life. So, thank you, girls!!
Once again, I would ask that you continue to pray for our kids and us as we make this next transition. There are many things that concern me in connection with him coming home. He needs quite a bit of care still. Also, I have tried very hard to keep the kids protected. Hopefully, their home will continue to be a place of comfort and wonderful moments for them. I will post again in a few days to let you know how our transition goes. Have a good evening.
