I woke up yesterday and was a total scrooge. I was certain after talking with the doctor that there was no way Joey would be allowed to come home. I was prone to fits of tears for no reason and had a temper like never before. Caretaker burnout.

I was home with my big kids, trying to give them a piece of normalcy. Then I saw Sydney had gone home. And I was thrilled. So I got a small piece of hope back. 20 minutes later...

Dr. W calls and tells me she has good and bad news. I braced. The good news is she had identification and partial sensitivities back. The bad news, it was only verbal results, nothing documented on paper yet. My heart sunk, I was ready to cry. Then she said "Normally I would keep him for 48 more hours to monitor him, however tomorrow is Christmas and in light of that, Joey can go home as soon as he gets another dose of antibiotic. But if he so much as blinks funny you need to get him back here"

I soared... my Christmas miracle. Finally... we would be together as a family.

I called my mom, had her pick up my big kids (and she braved the stores and took them shopping), picked up Joey's prescription (the doctor officially declared our pharmacy useless, worthless, and a pain in the butt), and drove to Duarte. When we got there they were just starting his last antibiotic. 30 minutes. It took 30 minutes for us to pack, him to get his med, us to get his beads of courage (he got 15 beads in 2 days!) and sign the papers. Thats a record for the hospital! As we were leaving a family brought a gift for Joey by.

There are 10 children remaining inpatient for Christmas at CoH. They discharged 10 yesterday...

We got him home, we spent some time at my moms opening Christmas Jammies. Joey was sleepy and his tummy was a bit upset but hes happy. nothing more than was expected or was happening inpatient. We will continue to monitor him, and hope he stays doing well.
