Can't Believe We're Home...

Thursday morning, Dr. Salazar stuck his head in our door and said, "How does going home today sound?"  Of course, we were ALL for it!!  He said that Caden was doing remarkably well.  He normally doesn't send his patients home until post-op day 5, and here we are going home on post-op day 3. 
After that it was a flurry of activity.  Nurses, doctors, nurse practitioners, x-rays, was a regular parade of medical professionals!!  Caden did very will with everything.  The last thing they did was pull his chest fun!  After that, this is what we saw for the next 2 hours while all of the necessary paper work was being handled.
Once all of the paperwork and discharge instructions were done, our sweet nurse came in and took out the last IV and disconnected us from all the machines.  Then it was time to get ready to go home!!!
Caden chose to be taken out in the wagon.
Before long, we were in the van headed to the house!!!
When we got home, Caden requested to sit in the recliner.  I hadn't seen a smile that big (or genuine) in quite a while.

So now we are all settled in at home.  Caden is having fun being at home with his brother.  Grayson has not left his side very much.  The hardest part of being home is convincing Caden that he is, in fact, still healing and needs to take it at least a little easy!!

Thank you so much for your continued prayers!  We are so thankful for how the Lord has used so many to help fix Caden up.  We have seen first hand the tangible power of prayer!!
