Home Sweet Home


Ah, it's so good to be home! My son had back surgery during the first week of March and due to some complications from that surgery, he has spent the past 1.5 months in the hospital. It's wonderful to be able to live at my house again! My days are pretty busy caring for my son, who now has respiratory issues we've never had to deal with before, but THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME. I'm tearing up thinking about how grateful I am to be home again. We had a scare last night with my son's O2 saturation dropping too low, and the thought of having to go back to the hospital just about made me ill. DH talked to the pediatric pulmonologist on call and he got us through the ordeal. THANK GOD! I hope to stay away from that place for a very, very long time now. Being able to be home means that Dear Son is doing well. It's been pretty rough to see him suffer so much lately.

I do have several finishes to take pictures of (I did a lot of stitching in the ICU!), but since it's late and I'm too tired to round them all up, I'm just going to add a picture of an ornament I made last Christmas that I'm pretty sure I didn't show on the blog before.
