Just over 48 hours after leaving he was back home.
Here are some photos of the last two days.
I chose not to tell my mom that my dad was on his way home earlier than what we had discussed. She was elated when he walked in the door as her world got exponentially better. I wish she could truly grasp what he went through and what it means.
We are all so grateful to Roger for being my dad's taxi driver and hospital comfort.
The friends my parents have are nothing short of incredible... the product of decades of investment and intentionality on all sides.
My uncle and aunt stopped by to check in. Always a treat to see family. I think it's safe to say they were both pleasantly surprised to see how well my dad was doing overall.
Alan and Rhonda were super thoughtful and dropped by with a scrumptious dinner. Again, dear friends with such rich relational roots.
The boys and I still aren't quite sure how long we will be staying. What we do know is that my dad is doing far too well to require much assistance. Everything has gone so smoothly that the PayPal Pool is now closed, the MealTrain was never even created, and I no longer need to field calls or schedule visitors. What a fabulous reality! The Lord has been faithful in such positive-to-us ways... for that I am deeply thankful. Of course, prayers are always a good idea and we humbly ask that you remain steadfast in your commitment to pray for my dad (and mom).
