The gang is all here...

Since we couldn't get Cody home today we decided to do the next best thing. I went home and picked up Justin and Diane's mother brought Daniela in. They are going to sleep with me tonight at the hotel. We are watching a movie in Cody's room tonight and it's kinda like being home....

Cody went 24 hours without pain meds today. They stepped him down from Oxycodone to Tylenol w/ Codeine. He did very well but late this afternoon he was a little out of sorts so I made him take Tylenol. He is now sitting in bed with Daniela watching "Night at the Museum."

We are still on track to go home tomorrow. It will be so nice to sleep in our own bed.

I'd like to say a special "hello and get well soon" to Megan. She is the daughter of Bruce "BGrunner" from Runners World. Megan is going through chemo also.

I hope to upload the pictures of yesterdays walk when we get home tomorrow...

I've been doing the hospital deal for over a month with my Dad. I'm amazed at Cody's recovery. Hope y'all enjoyed the slumber party.

Deck I got your message on the RW tread...Thank you! I have been following Cody's fight for as long as I have been on RW, but it has hit particularly close to home now. Please let Cody know that we draw so much strength off of his determiniation and fight. The kids that go through this are tougher then we may ever be.

I continue my daily prayers for Cody and the family. Through him all things can happen!

God Bless

Deck & Family,

Seems like good news for the little fighter - good to hear! Hope he gets home soon and continues down the road of recovery. Sent up a special prayer during my marathon last weekend!

Continued prayers on the way!
