Back in the hospital


For those of you who didn't hear, 4 days after Grace was born she ended up back in the hospital with a meningitis scare, which turned out to be nothing. She was put in the ICU for about 4 days while they waited for her spinal tap cultures to come back. After waiting 48 hours for that they decided to do another spinal tap because they felt like the growth in her culture was a contaminate, which gratefully turned out to be the case. So after 4 extremely emotional and stressful days we were able to come home. Wow, what a week it has been, it feels like a month, not a week. Roy and I would like to thank everybody for all of the prayers and support. This experience really showed us how much people love us and care about us. It is so comforting knowing we can count on help from so many people. We love you all.

I'm sorry to hear about that, but glad that everything is ok. That must have been really scary. So sad that she had to have spinal taps. Good luck with everything and let us know what your plans are for this summer.

so glad to hear Grace is doing well. I wrote to Roy's mom to ask about her when I heard she was in the hospital. We prayed and prayed for her. I am so glad prayers are answered!
We are happy all is well!
