Home again, home again...

We're home! Jack is happy to be here. Just playing with Emma. He loves her so much! I could sleep for three days!

Waiting for Steve to come get us, Jack wondered into the room next door. It was a cute girl, with an external shunt(due to infection). She is 20. Her first shunt lasted 11 years. Since that first malfunction, she has had 25 REVISIONS!!!!!! Oh my!!! Since June, she has been home 9 days!! She had a great attitude, and it was fun to ask her questions, we've been wanting to ask Jack!! She doesn't have any delays, she plays basketball, and soccer. It was very cool to talk to her!

Jack is doing great, but now we have to watch for infection. It's always an issue.

Thanks again, for all the well wishes!! Everyone, is amazed at how well he has done. He is amazing!
