He's back

Josh got back from the OR at 4:00. Dr. Azakie kept him in there to monitor him for a while. He's sleeping now, but woke up very upset. Dr Azakie said he was waking up in the OR asking for me. My poor boy. I wish I were there. Now I'm by his side, posting from my phone as he sleeps. Thank you for all your kind words, it's helped us a lot!

Been reading and praying all day from Santa Barbara. Glad he's back, you're back with him and all the stress of the wait is over.

Praying for a peaceful evening.

I'm so sorry you guys had to wait so long to see Josh after his surgery! And how heartbreaking to hear that he was asking for you in the OR. It's so frustrating how being in the hospital can sometimes render us powerless to meet our children's needs in the way we are accustomed to doing at home.

But I'm glad to hear that you are all together now! It was so nice to meet you and Jon today, and I look forward to meeting Josh, too.

Ahhh, he's BACK!!....and we all breathe a collective sigh of relief!!! Hip hip hooray!! :):)

Yes, it broke my heart to read that he was asking for you in the OR--but I am loving that that was the worst news of the day. He is such a brave brave boy.

Please give him a big hug and tell him his "cuzins" are so so happy for his great day today. May you all sleep in heavenly peace tonight!! xoxoxo

Ohhh, that is too sad for Josh to not have had his mom right then. If only he knew that you would have been there if you could! I'm so glad the first part is over. Just think...hopefully a week and then there's a great chance that will be it for a long time. That must be a happy thought. :)

You have been deep in our thoughts the past few days. We hope that you all find comfort in being together and that Josh recovers in a hurry.
