William’s condition, Home Sweet Home

I’ve never loved being home more than I do right now. So simple and peaceful with the ones I love. What a beautiful gift the Lord gave us.

Day 1 of being home has gone well. We’re both exhausted so please pray for us that we get enough rest this week. Will’s antibiotic treatment has us busy all day long. The last one finishes at midnight and the first starting at 5:30am. So, I’m taking this as prep for baby #2!

Learning how to administer his medication had me completely worried. Anything medically related is not my comfort zone. In fact, it usually sends chills up my spine. Home health care came to teach us and after completely screwing up my first test (pulling out the entire syringe as to make it pour on the floor…to which, me, Will, Tracy, & Katie just bursted laughing over. The nurse didn’t quite see the humor as we did. Well, thank the Lord, it was only sodium chloride.) After that, I got the hang of it pretty well. It’s been going great!!

Home in and of itself is theraputic. I feel our spirits already lighter just being here. Home health care came again today to draw Will’s blood just to ensure he’s being given the correct dosage of vancomycin. Will’s been walking around really well; even without the walker. Taking life a little bit slower; but so sweet!! We’ve both become slightly paranoid (in a good way), taking his fever every couple hours and double checking everything we do.

I must say while we were gone, there were angels that came in and cleaned our home. They flowed in like a domino effect and we almost didn’t recognize this place; it was spectacular! Thank you so much! Our neighbors kept the lawn, garden, and plants looking great. And, we even came home to baby grapes on the grapevine!

Thanks to everyone for helping us getting settled back in. We could not have done it without your love and support! Wow, have we really seen what the “body” of Christ actually looks like when people rally around you in love.

    SO so glad you are at home! Will be praying for strength; even though I knew God was in complete control and was ok “mentally”, the stress went right to my body and wore me out for about 2 weeks once Erick was home…so get all the sleep you can, take all the offers of help that you can too! And lucky you, giving those meds! I thought I was going to have to do it, but we ended up at the hospital every day; I think I would of rather done it at home! 😉
    That is such a joyful picture, by the way. LOVE it!

    PTL…so glad to see that HOME was waiting for you and gave you a great reception. We ALL are so glad you are home agin once more. We’ve followed this saga and God’s might hand in it from the beginning, thanks to a mutual friend – Kaarin Puhala. I hope one day we get the chance to meet your precious family.

    Such traumatic occurrences should not be necessary for us to appreciate the most simple things in life. As we are all connected, through prayer, our family feels great relief and gratitude for this Blessing. Your strength is inspiring and we are very proud of your courage. Stay beautiful, God Bless, and I know you will keep the Faith. Love always!

    It’s wonderful to see you looking so good, Will. What a beautiful picture of all of you with smiles on your faces. We’re praying for complete quick healing. God is so gracious. Thank you, Lord, for your healing and for your family who came together to help Janet, Will, Carter, and Little One through this.
