We’re home now, and Richy is acting pretty normal… a little emotional, but that’s understandable. Thank you all for praying! There was great grace for us!!
nice screenshot there. Thanks, Blogger.
I will be posting updates and such throughout the day. Currently we are waiting results from this morning’s chest x-ray and doctors rounds.
I will actually do a little more story-recounting once we’re out of here, so I’m working with more info.
Last night, I stayed with Richy till 10 or so, watching Toy Story and force-feeding him macaroni. When the movie was over I talked him into going to sleep. Then I headed on down the hall to the Ronald McDonald House, which is in the same building just a couple of halls away. Have you ever seen those donation boxes in front of the registers at McDonald’s? Those are for places like the RM room that I stayed in last night.
We ate lunch in there yesterday. Normally, you have that whole my-kid-is-sick hospital suck, and in addition to that you have $10+ parking a day, and then an average of $7 per parent per meal in a hospital cafeteria… plus random other expenses that show up in a crisis. Nothing like gouging people in need.
But amazingly, we got to go over to the RM room and eat chicken breast and steamed veggies and such- for free! And then I got a sleeping room (like a mini hotel room) and use of the showers and so on… it is such a blessing to have a little respite spot during this kind of stuff. SO if you see one of those boxes, throw some change in there. I know I will be.
