It's a Hard Day

No pictures today--Sammy is not at his finest. Today everything is catching up to him. He is in a lot of pain and both of his eyes have swollen shut. It's very scary and confusing to hear the noise of a hospital but not be able to see what is happening around you. The doctor prescribed some medicine that hopefully will reduce the swelling, and they are taking him off iv fluids since he is able to eat on his own now. That means as soon as he can open his eyes and walk on his own we will be able to go home. We hope that will be tomorrow but the doctor said he thinks more likely it will be Sunday. We just want to get home--a hospital is no place for a person who needs some rest!!

Please keep Sam in your prayers today; he needs them.

Thanks everyone!

Sending Sam tons of love & recovery strength..oh yeah, and lots of hugs,too.

I know what you mean about getting out of the hospital. The only two times I've stayed: Theo's birth and Theo's surgery, we were SO anxious to get out. No fun. There's nothing healing or restorative about it. Prayers for a quick departure.....
