I’m HOME!!!!! Yes!!! I don’t need confetti or balloons, I am just so thankful they let me come home. It was as romantic as I envisioned. My handsome husband, all my babies in our home. Safe. I feel protected. We were spoiled with a delicious meal, thank you Amy! Mamabird stayed for a couple hours to help me bathe and stop smelling like a dumpster. (Baby wipe showers DON’T WORK) Last night, the dr. made his rounds, we said goodnight, and I’ll give you 5 guesses as to what started leaking. Yep. I immediately did what all normal girls do: cry. I wanted to pound my fists in despair, but decided to pray. And eat my chocolate stash. I told the nurse and she grabbed the Dr. He restapled my head again, and said ‘we will see’. After that, I leaked a few drops, but not enough to dissuade him from letting me come home. Thank you Lord!!! Huge praise. He said I have what is called hydrocephalus, which is when one makes too much cerebral spinal fluid in the brain. This is a complication from surgery that we have to pray resolves itself. Or I will ultimately have to have a shunt put in. Please pray it will heal completely? The deal is I can be home as long as there is no leak, if there is a leak, I go back. My brain and heart needs a break. God already knows this. The amazing part of riding these trials is knowing God saw the entirety of the trial before we did. And He sees the next round to come. He can be trusted. He never forsakes us. And you know what? Through all this, I never once felt alone. Thank you friends for showering us with prayer, cards and encouragement. Thank you for caring for our children tirelessly. The joy and gratitude you have all brought me supercedes the silly tears. I appreciate each one of you. I am so excited to go back and read all of your messages and pray for you. Please thank God in your prayers today as He has done so much good, answered countless prayers and given me peace through it all. Dancing my happy dance…
