We have to thank the many friends and family that have wished us well, sent along gifts, and left encouraging comments. We cannot keep up with it all. But can say that our little boy is a miracle as a result of many prayers offered on his behalf. He keeps having problems that resolve before doctors can figure out what was causing the problem to begin with. The NICU stay was not pleasant, but easier compared to the many things we've gone through this year. Poor Will had his feet pricked every three hours for several days. His poor heals look like hamburger. And his veins were very poor for IV's, so he was constantly getting poked with needles. He's a very good baby to have tolerated what he did. He's much happier now.
Just a quick update, we are home, at least for two days. We had some questionable results on a liver ultrasound regarding a possible blood clot. Primary Children's wants to do their own ultra sound. McKay Dee Hospital was so good to us. The staff were so concerned about the health of both our children. They went out of their way to make sure that we can take Will down to Primary's during Amanda's Chemo. As a mom, I am frightened for both. They present many unknowns. But, so far I've seen time and time again that his health, her health, and my health have all seemed to coordinate in a way that has made things possible. Fortunately, I am feeling much better now that I am not pregnant. Which is good because the shock of coming home to three children was a bit overwhelming and I am going to need good health to keep up. Amanda was extremely excited to finally get to meet her baby brother. My prayers have been answered as she has had very good health during my absence and tolerated our week long separation well.
