I am so grateful to all of you who have given us such kind and loving words of support and for your prayers. You have no idea how that helped me find renewed strength. Brian and I feel so rich, because we are blessed to have such incredible friends and family. So thank you so much for helping us through this bump in the road.
My heart is also bursting with excitement because baby Grey is feeling better. He no longer has that horrible head accessory, the head IV. And he is PEEING. Yes I am being crude, sorry. I never thought that I would be so excited at the site of urine in a diaper. Not to mention the site of regular other stuff ( often referred to as #2) looking completely normal. Especially because he is staying hydrated without the help of the IV. What an incredible thing. He also has returned to his normal pale color with a little bit of pink and peach everywhere( courtesy of his very pale parents). He smiles now and flirts with all the ladies in the room ;) He is for sure returning to his normal self.
But here is the best part and I don't know what this means yet as far as where I will be tomorrow. He GAINED WEIGHT!!!! I am so happy!!! So I guess we will have to see what the doctors think and maybe I will be reunited with those gorgeous men I love and miss so much, Brian included ;) I have missed them so much!! I will try to never again take for granted the time that we have together again!
Here is another great quote I read this morning in Pres. Monson's talk that struck me.
"Despite the changes which come into our lives and with gratitude in our hearts, may we fill our days -- as much as we can-with those things which matter most. May we cherish those we hold dear and express our love to them in word and deed."
Its soooo true!!!
