Home Sweet Home

We were released from Hopkins yesterday after an uneventful visit. We are asked similar questions each time regarding Henry's health, and lately (and fortunately) we've nothing to report. He's not quite eating as much as we'd like, but it's ramping up. During our visit yesterday he polished off two bags of his favorite 'orange' potato chips!

The doctors left the room and Henry's first question was, "does that mean we get to go home?" After saying 'Yes', he hopped off the bed and did what we're now calling his 'Wohoo Dance'.

There are lots of pictures and stories from over the recent days. After we get our suitcases put away and the wonder at being home and healthy for a while tapers off a little, I'll post some of them. We've had a really lovely time at St. Casimir's. It's been an invaluable resource and meant that we could conserve our energy for caring instead of traveling. We cannot say enough about the Children's House and The Believe in Tomorrow Foundation. (In fact, if anyone has Sunday free and would like to participate in a fund raiser, they're having a run/walk in Baltimore - see here.)

I've enjoyed reading about Henry's progess. Hope you guys had fun at our store and that Henry likes his fire truck!

We check on Henry's progress almost every day. My daughter, Rachel (a friend from The Fun & Learning Center) saw that Nenry was coming home and drew some hearts for him. She asks about him all the time and loves to see his pictures here. We have been truly moved by his grace and strength and wish him and all of your family continued blessings.
