You will have significant experiences.
I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of
them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh
your memory of these meaningful and significant things.
Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you.
Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some
may build upon another until they represent a lifetime of
special experiences.

Turning Point...

Dear Family and Friends,

Zac turned the corner today!  His pain is under control on oral pills, he’s getting out of bed almost independently, and he accomplished the tasks needed to meet discharge criteria.  Woohoo!!!  He walked the halls of the entire unit four times.  He did so well that physical therapy released him to get up on his own after his first session.  That means no rehab facility.  Woohoo again!!!  We spoke with our case manager and started making plans for equipment and home health visits once we leave.  As long as his bowels continue to wake up, I’m thrilled to say it looks like we will be home by Friday!  I’m so excited!!!  I’m equally proud of Zac who really worked hard to do what needed to be done.  

We still don’t have the pathology results, but continue to pray the tumor is benign.  Tomorrow should bring the new MRI results, which will tell us exactly how much tumor remains and how we will plan to treat it.  We pray that so little is left that radiation won’t be necessary.  We also pray that Zac’s bowel will resume its normal function tomorrow so that he is finally more comfortable.  I’m just so happy that we are so close to coming home, I’m counting the minutes until I can hold my boys and cover them in kisses.  

Believe in Miracles,

The Bollinger Family
