22 July: Home sweet home


Eliza and Melissa are home!


This would be a great place for a picture of all 5 of us at home. But I didn’t take one. Instead here’s Eliza saying MORE CHEESE!

E was released this morning until her next chemo treatment on 5 August. So far she’s doing great– very sleepy in the morning, more energy in the afternoon, sometimes fussy and uncomfortable, but always down to snuggle. What more could you want from a baby?

She was asleep when we got home and didn’t wake up for a couple hours. But then her eyes were huge as she looked around the house, and she had a huge grin when Melissa walked in from taking the boys somewhere. And dinner tonight was the most she’s eaten in several days.

Pray that God will continue to sustain her through her recovery, and that the drowsiness will be the biggest side effect we see from the chemo. And pray for the boys as they readjust to having Melissa and Eliza home. Transitions are weird.

We probably won’t do daily updates between chemo rounds, but you can assume that no news is good news. She has an outpatient visit Wednesday to make sure she’s handling the chemo well, so we’ll let you know how that goes.

Today is a day that feels surreal in its non-sadness. We feel almost guilty for how normal we feel. But there will be plenty of hard days ahead. Today we’re just thanking God for a normal day, and holding on to this to remember the next time it feels like the wheels are coming off.

Thank you all. When we post good news, I hope each of you who is praying reads and thinks, “I got to help with that.” Because you did.
