Saturday morning already.....

So it’s Saturday morning and the kids and I are the only ones up. We will be packing and getting stuff together as soon as Diane and Cody get up. We will be checking out around 1:30 and hope to get on the road by 2. We have to return the car to an off site car rental and take the shuttle bus to the airport. We will be taking a detour before we get home though. We will be dropping Cody and Diane at Georgetown. Dr. Abu-Gosh has a list of things that need to be done including IV hydration, new feeding tube, check blood and X-rays to check the growth of the beast. We’ve noticed that Cody’s breathing has become more labored now. He is breathing faster with more shallow breaths. I hope he doesn’t have to stay in the hospital too long.

At times this week seemed to go very slow and now that it’s almost over it seems to have gone by too quickly. Cody had a good morning yesterday and wanted to go to the game room. He played a game that has a light that goes round and round. You must hit the button at just the right time to have it stop on the red prize light. I think he played it about 100 times and won 6 times. It was the only thing he really wanted to do. He has enjoyed playing Webkinz with Chris this week. He just can’t do things that are physical anymore. His legs hurt him too much.

Once I get home and I can collect my thoughts I have a list of people to thank for this trip. It really has been a God send.

Thanks for reading…

Mickey and family,
I'm wishing you a smooth and safe trip home, and a quick trip to Georgetown for Cody. I imagine you'll have a bit more comfort knowing it's Cody's docs helping him out.
Prayers continue as always,
ElizabethNYC

Your writing at this time is similar to what we went through with Max: him not being the "same" kid he was before. We found that Max's moodiness (for lack of a better description) was pain related. When we finally were able to get his pain meds up to par with his pain level, our boy returned a little bit... and it was wonderful.

Have a safe trip home! You and your family will be in my prayers.

It's such a blessing to know that Georgetown is waiting to aid Cody in his health and comfort as soon as you get home.
You are probably there by now and I'll trust that the flight was smooth and you will all have memories of a week at the beach and also be happy to be home. You are ever in my thoughts and prayers. G2G

I hope the trip home was easy and that Cody's time at the hospital is short so he can be home with all of you.
