7 months ago, we were here. Bodie was just coming off of a c-diff diagnosis and we had almost lost him 3 days earlier. He also had Paraflu, but it would be a couple of days before we would find that out. Oh, and before the week was out, he would also contract MRSA in his bloodstream. We were already completely shaken up and scared, and we were just getting started - we were about to embark on a crazy and uncomfortable journey that would include 2 more months in the hospital, mainly in the CTICU. It was a tough time, but we relied on God and made it through. If you could have told me, 7 months later, that I'd be looking at these faces playing in my living room, and watching daddy tickle both of them in a giant tickle fight in our bed, I'd have cried. I didn't dare hope we'd make it here. But we are. And I'm drinking it in and enjoying each amazing minute. Oh how I love this special, incredible, miracle boy and his sweet big sister whose heart has doubled to make room for her brother's missing half...
