Jack did great his last 2 days of the first part of this round. He ended up having to get blood yesterday…the first time he has needed a transfusion since transplant. Zac came in from Tucson and we were able to all spend some time together before I left to have a night at home while Zac stayed with Jack last night. They did well and they had a good night sleep so that’s always a good thing.
When I got home, Braden suprised me by walking!! He has been taking more and more steps by himself every day and he is becoming so independent. I know, funny to say about a 10 month old, but his personality is coming out more and more each day.
Zac and Jack came home this morning around 11:30 and everything is back to normal again for the next few days. Jack is so happy to be home and so happy to see everyone. Even though is supposed to be tired from this part of treatment, he has been nonstop since he got home.
Tonight we are having a calm night at home. We are getting ready to put Jack to bed for the night and I have a funny feeling we might be asleep before midnight! We do know that this past year is a year that we will never forget. This year has been a year full of so many different emotions that it is even hard to explain. We have been so thankful for our family, so excited for our new addition, in total shock over Jack’s diagnoses, sad and fearful for what he had to go through, terrified, happy for good news, exhausted from everything, overwhelmed…the list goes on and on. 2010 has brought so much. We will never forget, but yet we never want to relive. 2011 will bring us more good than bad. We know this. 11 is our number.
We thank you all for your support over this last year. We have made new friends, discovered old ones, learned to cherished the friendships that we already had, and become closer with family that we haven’t seen in years or that we have never met. Thank you so much. Without your constant love, we would have a harder time with all that we have been through.
So here’s to 2011…the best year yet.
