We are home – all four humans and two dogs. We came home to balloons, banners, a clean house, a new visitor’s area in Phenon’s room, a painted bathroom (2 coats!), get well cards, baked ziti, steamed broccoli, and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I looked around in that hospital and there were kids with no family and friends to visit them. I am always grateful for the family and friends we have, but I am exceptionally grateful tonight. It has been a trying two weeks and we have many months of hard still ahead. But I am reassured by the tangible reminders tonight that we have capable (some might say overachieving 🙂 ) and loving people to help us through.
