The Greatest of Days

Sound the alarms, Mighty Max has finally been able to come home!
Today has been incredible. Rare are the moments in life where true bliss is felt, and today was one of those coveted moments. We couldn't be happier to finally have our little family all together.

Even though we are home, the journey ahead is still long. We will be back at the hospital tomorrow, and Friday, and Monday, and Tuesday, etc., but the important thing is that we get to sleep at home and bring the little man with us. The hospital visits will eventually decrease in frequency, but for the next 3-6 months we will be there multiple times a week for checkups, tests, medication alterations, and various procedures. Keep your fingers crossed that his magnesium levels stay in an acceptable range and everything continues to go as well as it has been.

Max is ready to go!

Now it is mainly on us to keep him happy, safe, and most importantly, healthy. It will be difficult to keep him generally isolated in a big city and limit his exposure to outside contaminants for the next year, but that is merely a small bump on the road ahead and we are up to the challenge. 

We thank you all for the copious love and support you are all graciously giving our family. We heard that the fundraiser at The State Bar was a resounding success and we don't even know how to go about thanking you all. We are overwhelmed with gratitude and and love and can't believe how fortunate we are to have such wonderful people in our lives. Max is truly blessed to grow up in a world with such amazing folks and such a large and loving family.

I don't think we can ever thank you all enough or let you know how truly grateful we feel for each and every one of you. This last month has been the most difficult month of our entire lives, but knowing you all were there, standing by our sides, made it that must easier to buckle down and march ahead. 

To the future, onward, and upward.
