Family and Friends

Most of you know that Mommy and Daddy have been working on the house to get it ready for little G when he comes home. It has been one of those projects that grows. Take one thing down and find two more things that need to be corrected or replaced before the new goes in. This weekend, Mommy and Daddy did a 48 hour 'room in' with Grady. While they were living the family life, their dear friends were working their back sides off. The new floor is in! Thank you to all of you. I hope you know how much this means to the big kids. What a wonderful gift, to give up your weekend and give Mommy and Daddy one huge blessing. Time was getting short for this project and you all completed it and took major pressure off of the kids. At the risk of repeating myself, you are true family. God has blessed us by putting you in our lives. Our little man is going to grow up knowing that family has a much larger description than most people know.
As for our precious little man, he is getting so close to coming home. Once the rooming in weekends are completed, we will be getting ready for the day we bring Grady home. Once he is home, there will be new worries and concerns. Bringing an immune weak child home , will have its own fears. This little man may be 25 before he gets to see the light of day. The hospital staff have already begun to warn us that we need be sure we keep visitors to a minimum. Everyone will have to wash up before they can touch him. Little people will be discouraged from coming over to see him. One more period of time that Mommy and Daddy will worry. The RSV season is upon us so that will restrict the places that Grady will be taken to. Having a kindergartener will have its own concerns. We will be doing our best to keep big sister healthy. So, please don't stop praying for this little family. All of your prayers have assisted in getting Grady this healthy and he will continue to improve with the love you have given him. Hopefully, it will not be long before all the kids can live a more normal life and not have to be so cautious.
As always, thank you for your love, support and most of all your prayers. Also, a big THANKS to the work team that got this house so much closer to being completed. You did a great job.
Talk soon,
