We Are Home!!!!

After much speculation that we would need to wait until the official report from the CT scan, one of Ben's oncologists decided today that he was good to go home!!! We were so overjoyed! No words can express the excitement in the room. I think we were packed and ready to go in about 5 minutes.

We still do not know exactly what Ben had...but it was probably one of the thousands of viruses out there that they cannot test for. He still has a bit of a cough but no fever since Friday night. He is not able to go back to school quite yet, but should be able to by Wednesday. More than enough time to fully participate in all the Halloween festivities.

David is back home after spending much time with his Grammy and Poppy. Although we are so lucky he had such a safe and fun place to be during this whole ordeal, we are so happy to have him home. The boys were so cute upon reuniting (this was the longest they have ever been apart - the hospital did not allow visitors under the age of 18 during this horrible flu season). Of course, this was short-lived and they were back to their fighting and teasing and tormenting in no time :)

We also had the return of the puppies this afternoon! We were so happy to see Dakota and excited to see how much Cherokee has grown in the past 10 days. It was a crazy and noisy household by bedtime...just the way we like it! We are so grateful to have things back to normal!

The boys are sleeping soundly with Shaggy snuggling with David and Zorro loving up next to Ben! Yay!
