Josh is FREE

Yea! Josh gets to go home from the hospital today! Thank you everyone for your prayers in his behalf! He will be going home with a PICC line and will need home IV antibiotics for 3 weeks but we've been there and done that before.

The tricky thing this time is when he had a PICC line before he was single and still living at home with me. Now he is married, and a college student with a toddler (Dana Banana) who is so curios about everything. So, we'll just have to work extra hard to try and keep her away from all of Daddy's tubing, and meds. (Can't have her accidentally pulling his PICC line out now can we) ;-0

Well we had bought them airfare to come visit us in our NC home for their spring break before we give it up and move back to Tampa, FL. (Paid for by my husbands client) We have the home until the end of March. They have never seen this home before, or NC and really wanted to visit. Then Josh gets sick and we of course are really concerned for him and are just praying that he would be well enough to travel.

We KNOW God answers prayers! He doesn't always give us the answers we want, but this time he said YES! The doctors gave Josh the green light! Josh is not only going home, he gets to come visit us in NC! Grace just had to make some extra arrangements with the home health care nurse in the Charlotte area to have them come check up on Josh there.

Thanks again to everyone who kept them in their prayers. We love you all!


  1. YEA!! I'm soooo glad he is coming home and is even able to go to NC! God is so wonderful!

    I did read your last post when you first posted it, but it wouldn't let me leave a comment for some reason. I'm hoping that this comment works;)

  2. Yay!!! How cool is it that he gets to come visit?!?
    I will continue to pray that he feels awesome and has fun with you guys!!

  3. Gosh, I'm so sorry to hear about Josh's latest experiences with the doctors, but am glad that he is finally getting proper care, and that they get to come visit you!! I have a blog now too - I'll e-mail you the address. We have LOVED having Tayleen and Adam nearby - thanks for sharing them with us! Love, Kathy

  4. home at last! btw he does all his meds 3 times a day and Dana is always in bed at that time so we are in the clear.
