Thankfully we are home now, but I wanted to jot down our last few days at the hospital before I forget.
Since the PICC line is in and he finally started drinking chocolate milk, he didn't have to stay attached to the iv line anymore. Freedom!
Thank you again to all of our friends and family that prayed and left messages on here and facebook. They definitely helped brighten our days knowing that you were all thinking of us. As soon as Evan gets the picc line out and if off the antibiotics, we are going to go back up (bring goodies...treats and toys) for the staff, doctors and nurses, as well as the other patients and their families). We want to continue to pray for "baby Jo-Jo" and another little baby. They were still there when we left. One of the first nights, Evan was concerned with a crying baby down the hall...he thought it was Alex, so Mike said, that it was Baby Jo-Jo. So, every time she would cry, he said baby Jo-Jo crying...It helped him realize that other kids were there and that is wasn't Alex. She was always crying unless she was sleeping....we didn't know what was wrong with her, but hopefully the doctors will figure it out and she'll be better soon. There was also another little baby who had some sort of brain surgery too, who we hope gets better soon. It's a tough place to be...so thank you for praying, helping, calling, texting, messaging, etc. We definitely appreciate it!
