Stolen from Astrid's blog again:

Thank the Lord! It was a big surprise but the drs felt that Ian was up for coming home today! Instead of a 5 day dose of steroids, he only got 3. Apparently he was responding well & they didn't feel the need to keep giving him more. It is a "less is better" type of situation. His ataxia has already decreased quite a bit & he is able to get his hand to his mouth quite a bit now. His movements are more deliberate & he seems to be more relaxed over all.

Of course, we have not gotten anywhere near close to where we were before all this happened. He is being referred to ECI (Early Childhood Intervention) & will need the physical & occupational therapy to relearn gross & fine motor skills. The drs also said he will do much better at home, being motivated by familiar surroundings as well as his 2 sisters.

Honestly, we are just glad he is well. I have missed having my whole family under 1 roof. Through all this, we have had an outpouring of support. I want to particularly thank the mommies in my Just Mommies Playroom, the Northwest MOM group & also JV Baptist Church for reaching out to us. We are relieved to not have to cook meals as time is very precious around here & it happens to be used up on caring for the kids rather than cooking. Todd & I are very blessed to have the family & friends we have. There have been endless phone conversations & shoulders to cry on these past 2 weeks. THANK YOU GOD! We are some of the luckiest people in the world!
