Praise all around!
On this first day of Lent, I couldn't believe more that prayers are answered. Today, baby Ben went home from the hospital and is doing really well. His parents are so happy, and his brother will be so excited to have him back! Also, Crew (who had open heart surgery on Monday) is doing much better than anyone expected. They had originally told the parents that they would be here for 7-10 days and it is looking like they may possibly go home on Friday or Saturday! His heart looks great, the surgery went off without a hitch, he is off all his medication drips, he's breathing on his own, and he's on just a touch of pain meds. He's even starting to eat again! His parents are thrilled and so am I. It's been wonderful to be here in order to help support them during this time. His mom and I are going to sneak a "girl's night out" dinner tomorrow since everything is going so well. Yea!!!
