Callie has been doing well since she came home from the hospital. She has a nurse with her while she’s asleep every night to help monitor her oxygen levels, her bi-pap machine and tube feedings and to help position her. We’ve been busy getting to know her nurses and telling them about all the little things we never knew we did until we started explaining them to someone else.
We are always overwhelmed with the support people continually give us, especially during Callie’s hospitalizations.
We’re thankful to Debby, a woman whom we had never met until she came to our house, picked up our van, got the oil changed, filled it with gas, ran it through a car wash and vacuumed it out.
To another Debbie, my boss, who gave me time off when I desperately needed it. And to my colleagues on unit 3300, who no doubt took on more patients and shifts while I pulled myself, and my family, back together.
To our church family, which has supported us endlessly. There isn’t enough space, time or memory capacity to list all they’ve done for us and Callie.
It’s the everyday things that help make a difference – our neighbor Paul, seeing that our grass needed to be cut and just coming over and doing it (which required picking up many boy-toys out of the backyard!).
Both Nathan and I have wonderful families who cherish Callie and make a point of traveling to see us when we’re unable to go to them.
And to those of you we may never see or know. Thank you for your anonymous gifts, your prayers and for loving our special little girl from near and far away.
