Thursday morning and the first in more than 40 days since we were all home at one time. That’s right; yesterday during one of the worst snowstorms in the past several years Brady was released from the hospital and we went home. We arrived late yesterday afternoon in the height of the storm but other than a rather slow drive home it was well worth it.
Currently, Brady is sleeping in his crib. Last night, I think he played with every toy he owns, read every book he has and I understand for the longest time stood at the window and cried Da-Da as I shoveled more snow than I probably should have. Life is pretty darn good.
Today, Brady will have (Pam) one with nurses from RWJU Hospital stop by to administer his antibiotics. The antibiotics arrived last night around 6:00pm complete with an IV pump.
I’m going to make this a short entry as I must get going to see if I can get out of driveway and head off to work. Before I go I must say just a few quick thank you’s; Michelle, Maureen, Ellen and my next door neighbors Dan & Debbie all of you are just incredible people and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I will go into details in my next entry.
Until then; your prayers, hugs and good thoughts are being answered so please continue them, they mean so much!!!
“8 Years Later—Still No Cure for Pediatric Cancer” is a series of posts revisiting the journal kept by Sherrie and Michael Wells during the cancer diagnosis and treatment of their son, Brady Michael. Hopefully these entires will provide an understanding of the journey families face when dealing with these horrific diseases and of the important work the Hugs for Brady Foundation does.
