All three kings had some fun today. . . William and Edmund monkeyed around with Daddy and Uncle Matt:
. . . and we took them to see the Karate Kid.
Meanwhile, Henry had Grammy and Paw Paw (my parents) all to himself. They are heading home tomorrow and will be missed so much. I don't know what we would have done without them . . . they are a huge source of strength and support. Here's Henry giving them some thank you hugs and kissies:
We have been blessed beyond measure by the love and support of family and friends. From the local visitors bringing immediate needs like phone chargers, clean clothes, an extra car . . . to those offering coffee and "please-come-now-on-call-friend-therapy" . . . to the visitors from afar (Louisiana, California, Ohio) . . . we have felt so loved and cared for. THANK YOU for the meals, the babysitting, the cards and gifts, the packages for our big boys . . . all of these things - the many ways you are filling needs before we even have time to realize them - have been such an encouragement to us. I'm so thankful for the connection to people online as we continue to spend lonely nights here in the hospital. Above all, thank you for your prayers. We do believe that God has heard the cries of His people asking to heal Henry. Of course there is no way to actually measure prayer, but I have a sense that this effort was enormous. I do believe all continents are accounted for save Antarctica (please, Antarcticans, correct me if I'm wrong). And this vision of people in all parts of the world collectively sending up pleas for our boy . . . it brings me to tears. We love him so much. He is a gift and a miracle.
