Back Home!

We got back home about 10:30 last night. The doctor was to remove Cody's drain tube yesterday and was in surgery until 9:00 pm. It was a very long day but the kids were very well behaved. Linda, who is the Child Life lady at the hospital did a wonderful job keeping the kids busy. Thank you Linda! They played games and did crafts so it made the day seem a little shorter.

The doctor came up to remove Cody's tube a little after 9:00. He took the dressing off, cut the stitch that held the tube in and slid it right out. The removal of the dressing hurt more than the removal itself but Cody handled it like a champ. He cried for a few minutes but was laughing with his brother soon there after. I have to take him back to the clinic this morning for blood work but we will be coming right back home. The kids are out of school this week for spring break so he will have plenty to do.

I'm going to work on getting the bracelets bagged and ready to go today also. I will go ahead and ship them and let you know by email what the cost is.

I'll post some pictures later today...

I will be getting the first batch of bracelets out tomorrow. Get your orders into me if you haven't already.
