An update...

WE ARE COMING HOME TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Two days ago they were slating us for mid-week next week or Friday. Now we are going home today, unbelievable. That is how much he has improved in the last couple of days. He just decided that he was going to chug down nearly every bottle he was given and gain that weight.

We are cleaning up our room at RMH right now.

Checking out of the hospital is a long process we probably won't be out of here until 4pm today.

OK gotta get back to work here.

We will update you about visitations to our house soon. There are specific things we have to tell people first. But we will do that later.

Thanks again for all of you prayers and support through chapter 1,

Rich

An addition from Steph:
I'm absolutely overcome with emotion right now. It's hard to write or speak without a grin from ear to ear or tears of joy in our eyes. We can't believe this day has finally come for us. I will leave you with a message I received in a card from a dear family friend of ours:

"One of the most difficult things to do in life is to 'let go.' We think that we have to make all the decisions, and often the right choice is not clear. Prayer is always the answer. As we put our faith in God and trust Him to show us the way, we experience what it means to 'let go' and 'let God.' "

Our faith has helped us get through these last 37 days. We thank you all for reaching out and helping us in your own special way: your prayers, messages, cards, and warm, positive thoughts. Thank you for standing beside us through our first journey as a family. As Rich mentioned, we will continue to post and share our exciting homecoming news.

Love you all,
Steph
