We are back together.

We know that many of you have worried from not hearing from us, we are sorry. For a least a week, we didn't post because there wasn't much of an update other than enduring out time at the hospital and wondering why we were still there. The good news from all of the waiting and lack of posts is that Bela is now HOME! Brining her home felt like it was the first time all over again. I can't begin to tell you how nice it is to be home together. We know that we are home because of the prayers and faith of all of you. As for the last two days, Bela seems like a normal baby; happy, calm, content, not much throwing up, sleeping regularly, and through the night. It is almost too good to be true. I am sure I am leaving out so many details, but we wanted to make sure everyone knows we are home and so far so good. We will now take advantage of our time at home together not knowing when we return to our favorite vacation spot, ST. JOES!

What fantastic news!! I'm so happy that you are home with sweet Bela again! Hopefully you won't be back to your home away from home for another six weeks or so when she has her next surgery. Relax and enjoy your summer with your two precious munchkins.

It is truly amazing what the power of prayer can accomplish when so many contribute! While I know that being home does not mean that you will always have clear sailing, it does at least bring some sunshine and quiet water. Bela and your family will stay in my prayers for the foreseeable future, since I live too far away to provide any other assistance.
