I just want to cry. God is so good. I am making chocolate chip cookies for the kids. When they walk in, the house will be filled with the smell of cookies and there Mom is HOME!

Gary did great. We have a few things we are keeping an eye on. Last night Gary took a two hour nap. When he woke up he was very unsteady. He would not walk on his own unless he was hanging onto something. It started working itself out but then he wanted to go back to bed. He woke up again, able to walk and take steps. However, the steps were not right. The doctors said that when he is stepping he is locking his ankle. The could not get him to say "Ouch" when they manipulated his ankle and legs. It looks to me like it is coming more from his hips but I am not sure. We are home though. They told me to keep an eye on it. If it gets worse I will be taking him back in before next week. Our next overnight stay is Tuesday. The are doubling his Cytoxin dose and we will get IVIG. I don't like the way he is walking funny but not complaining of pain. But I don't like a lot of things, so that doesn't say much. They still feel like the red fingers and face and feet are from the drugs.


  1. Chocolate chip cookies are a GREAT sign. I am so glad for Gary and the rest of you that you are home tonight. Enjoy them, and keep in mind they go great with vanilla bean ice cream too !!

  2. Praise be to God!!! Such wonderful news. Thanks for the update. I bet the kids LOVED the cookies!
