Maybe home today

I know I was going to try and update all the details of how we got back to the hospital, but frankly its too exhausting of a story to share. If you're dying to know, call me and I'll tell you all the particulars.

Gracie seems to be doing better, she actually was playful yesterday for the first time in a week and a half. No more fevers, all of her cultures and labs have come back negative and we continue not knowing the cause of the fevers. She did start having diarrhea last night and today, but I'm hoping that doesn't keep us here another night.

So now I'm just enjoying letting Grace finally sleep and waiting to hear if we get to go home today.

i'm so glad that you are back home. Daxton was having fevers last week also. I was on the verge of taking him in and then he popped a tooth out. You just never know. Always keeping us on our toes.

Deanna, you are such a strong woman. I think about you all the time. You probably don't even know that I check your blog. Our little guy- Tanner- had a heart surgery in the cath lab in June, and it's looking like our new baby might also need a heart surgery in the next few months. Small in comparison to what you have been through and how many visits you've made to the cath lab (and more) with little Gracie, but I just wanted you to know that I have thought about you so many times and gained strength from your example and faith. You are truly an amazing family.

You have a beautiful family. Prayers being said for Gracie and your family. Blessings,
