Back Home

Sam had surgery and it seemed to go well. He won't let me hang around and take such a great look down there, as he is tender, but the urine and blood seem to be draining well. Hopefully in a day or two it will just be urine. We got home 5pm and then I picked up girls and headed back home. He seems happy enough and was happy to walk and sit and move around, although a little gingerly. Tomorrow Sam is due to start a 4 week course - a Feeding Clinic! I didn't think he'd get to attend the first session, but as we are home and he seems to be doing ok we might just get there. I will know more tomorrow, but I think there are 5 kids and they will be in a room with Speech Language Therapists, O.T.s and Psychiatrics.... the event will take place around food and play and the aim is to get them putting food in their mouths. The parents will be behind a 1 way mirror, and will be able to watch and learn and will be trained by another expert in this field... so I'm excited about the potential tomorrow and this course holds. I'm very grateful to friends that have sorted out the girls again and Sams amazing carer who wasn't with Sam today due to hospital, but instead she cleaned my house - carers are amazing people - the unsung heroes of the health system. May they know encouragement and joy in the mundane and sometimes unpleasant tasks they have, doing it out of love, because there is no ladder to climb with high wages awaiting them at the top..... truly great people. Am tired, but so very thankful that today went well. I leave you with an encouraging word that helps me get through a day of unknown... Proverbs 3:5,6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” X S
