Back again and ready for school...

We got the boy back out of the hospital on Friday afternoon. Originally, we all thought that he had the same bacteria in his central line again. Not so. I found out that he actually had MRSA sepsis (potentially fatal). Now, he is colonized with VRE (Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus) and MRSA (Methycillin Resistant Staph Aureus). That really bothers me, even though his antibiotics are working and he is feeling better. It's just knowing that my child is colonized with two superbugs.

So, now he's missed the first week of school. He is excited to make it to school on Monday and meet his teacher and classmates. He makes friends easily so it shouldn't be a big deal.

We finally got moved!!! That's step two of the "getting a house that meets Isaiah's needs" plan. Step one was completed when we sold our house. If you need our address, shoot me an email please. We are now living in another town, but thankfully the kids are allowed to continue in our school district. We plan to move back to our town as soon as we save more money and find the right floor plan for Isaiah. Finding the right floor plan is going to take some time...

I have to say, working lots of hours, moving and having a child in the hospital all in the same week does not spell FUN. Glad this week is over...more glad that my boy is home. Thankful that I can do his IV antibiotics for him. Appreciative of our friends and family that want to help us.

Still waiting for THE CALL...

  2. I think your son is amazing. He has helped me keep things in perspective--how important life, love and family are. How we shouldn't take them for granted. I think you are amazing. You have helped me remember my faith, love and strength for God and my family. My prayers are always with you.

  3. WOW, you have done a ton in just a week! Keep me updated about your new place and send me your new adress ASAP!
