Could it be?
This is just going to be a short post...sorry for the lack of communication. I can hardly believe that I am writing this, but there is about an 80% chance that Maxwell is coming home tomorrow (Monday)!! After 9-months and 7-days, 283 total days and 15,000+ miles just commuting to the hospital and back, I cannot believe that he might actually come home. After a certain period of time I think I just thought this is how life would be for us: one of us parenting Wes while the other parented Max at the hospital. There is certainly equal levels of excitement and fear about Max coming home. Life will not be the same for us for a long, long time. We will have a nurse living in the house every night, help for Kate during the day while I am at work and a tremendous amount of responsibility with Max's trach. Please pray that tomorrow will be the day, that Max will make the transition well and that Kate and I will make the transition well. It seems like too much to handle right now and we are praying for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit to carry us through.
Here are some pictures from Christmas day...we cheated and put the boys by each other. Needless to say, it was amazing!!
Warning!!: These are the cutest kids you will ever see.
