Brock Rocks

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!)

For more frequent updates you can follow us on twitter or facebook.

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!

    I was thinking last night we had not heard from you in a while, but because Brock was doing so good we assumed you were doing what you were doing, just enjoying him.
    Thank you for getting in touch, with him doing so well an occasional update and more wonderful pictures is all, all of us Nana’s need to keep us happy, the prayer team will LOVE the new pictures he looks like he is doing AWESOME and growing like a weed too.
    Love the picture of him with you.
    enjoy your kids while they are little, before you know it they will be off to high school and you will be luck to see them for meals!
    God bless y’all,
    Barbara & Danny

    • While I’m flattered that you think I’m so young, I have to tell you that was not me in the picture, but my 19 year old niece. 🙂

  8. Thank you for posting the beautiful pictures. What a joy for me to see him outside playing. I can’t even imagine all of the emotions you were experiencing. Praise God he is doing so well and you are able to enjoy doing “normal” things as a family. You guys are always in my prayers.

    Happy New Year to all of you!

  9. Thanks Vanessa for the update! My family has been praying for all of you! We found out about you from Tammi Bradford when Brock was first diagnosed. I just checked yesterday to see if I was missing some of the posts! So happy that Brock is doing so well. We will keep praying. Blessings to you all!!
