Today I received the news that I have been
praying for all weekend. We are FLYING HOME!
Tomorrow MED FLIGHT will be taking us to
Dartmouth, NH. It's not home, but it's darn
close. I have have really enjoyed my time here,
as hard as it was to be away from family. I
have been so blessed with the kindness of
family and friends. How do I say thank you?

I will especially miss my twin. Hard for me not
to cry as I sit here and type this. We have SO
much fun together. I have been thinking about
yesterday and how he stayed with me for hours.
We LAUGHED and LAUGHED some more. I was
actually feeling a little guilty that we were
having so much fun in the PICU, but we did it
anyway. I love his family and have enjoyed being
here with them. Thanks for hosting me. :)

I loved getting to know Haley and was smitten.
I am grateful that she warmed up to me quickly.
I'm thankful for all the visits that Ben and his
family made to see us. I am sad that I don't have
any pictures of Joy, but grateful that she has
been there, for whatever I needed. I'll miss you.
These pictures are from the Pedi Floor, when
Ben's children could come visit. They are more
strict about visitors in the PICU. I LOVE the
way that their children LOVE my son.
I have been touched.

I can't tell you how excited I am to be flying home.
But I can't help be a little emotional at the same time.
I will miss all the great people of Utah. Don't worry,
we'll be back. And for the record shirts are
