{home again}


we're back! a little bit later than expected, but home, none the less. we were all itching the last few hours to get out of doors again. & to see our old home again. isaac, as you can see, is wiggling all around again & feeling nearly 100%. you would never guess his little bum was all in stitches...he makes me a bit nervous with all of the kicking.

this was by far our smoothest hospital visit yet! surgery was only an hour {compared to six last time around} we had great nurses, & even though it was a longer stay that we had hoped for, it was still just a little over 24 hours. horray! we are done now for about another 8 weeks :)

the 'unfortunately' of our trip was that we had our second vehicle mishap {why always in the parking deck?!} daniel went out to grab our luggage thursday evening & our car wouldn't start. the 'fortunately' though, was that he even tried to move our car that evening & we found out before we tried to leave with isaac & that we had two separate friends who both helped us check my car & tow it away. SUCH a lifesaver! it could have actually been about 1000x worse & i feel like they {& daniel, too, for taking care of it all} blessed us so much. i wasn't worried about it at all & was able to focus on isaac. needless to say, we are ending today feeling really grateful all over again for all of the wonderful, caring friends we have here.

crisis = avoided

tomorrow we are already taking isaac out {& i'll say it again - he is doing AWESOME} to a 'Be the One Run' - marrow.org, the bone marrow registry i've mentioned before is sponsoring it & we are really excited to be there & share just a tiny bit of our story with people. we're going to try to run to. {ha}
