Home Sweet Home

Yes we are finally home :) It's been a very long 3 weeks for us. Peyton is doing great. For those who don't know. Peyton was kept in the hospital for an extra week because of some damage done to his treachea while he was on the ventilator. So we had to wait for the little dead skin to fall off and the ENT wanted to make sure we were in a "safe" place when that happened.
I am so very grateful for all of you who were praying for us. The prayers truely did work, Peyton was suppose to be still in the hospital this week, but it was a miracle in my book that the skin fell off and he was not in any distress at all. I don't know if I would have been able to handle it.
It was bad enough to have Aaron away when Peyton was put on the ventilator and having to see him and be so very strong for my little guy. I know that the Lord knew I would not been able to handle that again. Because of the skin that needed to come off there was a possiablity that Peyton would have to be back down in the PICU and have a treach put in and have it for 6 months to a year. That still might happen if the skin has closed up to much of his treachea. I really hope not. But we have the Best ENT in the midwest.
Again I am so very thankful for Dr Robison who has helped us from the beginning making sure we are getting the right treatment and the staff was doing a great job keeping me informed.
The boys are so very excited to have Peyton back home and to have Mommy once again. I can't believe we will be moving by the end of next month. Yes it has been a VERY long 10 months and I can't wait for it to be over. These last two months have been the longest, but it will soon be over.
Aaron graduates from FMTB on the 5th and than is off to Portsmouth, VA that same day. We are still house hunting and can't wait to find us a home. Kodi is set on getting another fish and dog. We know he will be getting a fish and not a dog, but soon enough he will find that one out.
Kingston is being a monster lately and trying to push every button of Tara's since she has been watching my boys. But he still love her and will mis her when we move.
I am hanging in and doing my best to keep everything together :)

Wow, Mary. You're one tough cookie! :) I'm glad he's home and well... and that Kingston's well enough to be pushing buttons. :) Hopefully these next few weeks will continue to be good, you'll find a great place to live and you can all be together again and happy. :)
