Yesterday was a looooooooooooong day ... againSam was beginning to wonder if he was ever going to get home. we had to see all sorts of different doctors, specialists and members of Sam's care team(OT, PT, social workers, pych. therapists, etc) poor sam was beat from the rash (which was not any better) and then he was poked and prodded again all day and then top it off with the excitement of going home! It took all day for 5.30pm to get here -- that is when dad finally got to us (with a McD's cheese burger in tow).
During the day there was one fabulous break and that was when Auntie Kay and Uncle Howie showed up with Chris and family. Sam really enjoyed sitting and being a kid for a bit with him! They even threw the ball around (ok it was a big blue rubber ball used for exercises but we arent complaining! lol)
Did discover that Sam is allergic to something in the dylantin pill-- the coating, colouring or filler that is used and that is why he had a horrible rash. Apparently it will take about 2 weeks for the rash to finally totally dissapate (according to the guys that know it all.... ok just a bit of sarcasm!)
Dennis and i spent a good portion of our morning getting laundry done and cleaning up our room at the RMH, and packing. Then we finally got ourselves to the hospital and found that sammi had yet another lovely rash on his upper left arm -- looking like broken blood vessels. I was just a tad bit unnerved to see this -- and of course started to worry we would be delayed another day, but God knew what that would do to sammi and my spirits i am sure and the doctors and nurses said it was just yet ANOTHER reaction to the dylantin... sigh
Well the long and short of it is our wonderful, amazing, miracle son is home. where he belongs. I think God has great plans for Sam, and that is why he everything happened as it did. We may never know what that plan is but it doesnt matter, God knows and He has it all under control.
My boy is home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
