Zoo Fun

When Jaycie woke up yesterday she asked what we were going to do for the day.  I told her we could do whatever she wanted after Brock’s therapists left and she chose to go to the zoo.  Good choice!

{Do you see him EATING???}

Also, look how much he’s grown and changed in the last 6 months!  Here’s a picture from the last time we were at the zoo:

No hair, could barely crawl, feeding tube 24/7.  God is so good!

We’re still here!

Oh my.  I didn’t realize I left you all hanging with that ‘we’re in the hospital’ post. Consider this my attempt to appease you with pictures.

So it ended up that the skin around Brock’s g-tube was infected.  We went home right before New Year’s (Years?  Years’?) Eve and finished up 2 weeks of iv antibiotics at home. 

Jay and I are old pros at doing iv meds at home.  Brock was on iv antifungals 3 times a day for MONTHS!  But man!  We felt out of practice!  It was the easy kind to give – no reconstituting vials – but we were certainly glad when the 2 weeks were up.

After over a year of updating on Brock’s health nearly every day, I have to admit that it was NICE to have a break.  There were definitely things going on that I could’ve blogged about (eating! walking!) but I enjoyed being able to relish those with our own little family for awhile and not need to get online to tell everyone about the latest crisis.

Don’t worry – I’ll bore you to tears in the near future with stories of all the things he’s doing. (eating! walking!)

Hope you all had a lovely new year!  Thank you so much for continuing to pray with us.  God has used you to be such a blessing to our family!
