We had a rough night and long morning...needing a new IV placed, soiling the bed, Thomas falling on his head, early wakeup for vitals, lab work with a finger prick, and about 6 hours of fasting before and after they pulled the drain tube from his chest.
But a visit to the heart ward playroom perked him up. He started painting a picture of the aquarium in there, and immediately his face just lit up! After that he started walking, playing with his sisters and cousins, eating, and I even had to tell him to stop running twice! Our friends brought communion and a sweet book of prayer letters, and grandparents came to visit too.
My favorite statement of the day was, "I can do everything now!" Hopefully he has a good night and we'll be heading home tomorrow.
God is good and has answered all our prayers.
