On our way home

Drew slept until 3:15! Which was great because once he woke up he was moving! I thought he'd be really cranky when he woke up, but he was in a great mood. He immediately asked for a snack and we had grilled cheese, chicken nuggets and french fries at the ready. He ate french fries by the fistfull and gulped down his apple juice. He also wanted to watch dinosaurs and the nice nurse found a dinosaur movie and brought it in for him. He showed me his owies and I kissed them.

Then he got really whiny and fidgety. He was supposed to lay flat and still until 5, but he was flip-flopping all over his bed. He started saying "I am sad." Nothing we offered really seemed to help. Luckily the doctors said we could leave as early as we wanted after 5pm. We figured he'd be better once we got in the car so we left by 5:30.

We are in Oakland picking up Ava. We are going to eat dinner here and then head home to sleep in our own beds. Thanks for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers today.

HI Andrea

We are so glad that the heart cath went well and that Drew is doing good. Hurray to be able to go home.

Brynlyn's heart cath is May 15th with possible surgery on May 29th. So we're right there with ya in this big month of May, full of heart stuff.

I would like to ask your permission to put a link to Drew's blog from Brynlyn's blog? We have linked up Sophia's blog already. Let me know if that's okay with you.

I just wanted to let you know that we are thinking of you and your family and we pray that everything will continue to go well for Drew.

Take care,
Susie Jensen

Hey guys-
Thanks so much for keeping us posted so well on all that is happening with Drew. I know yesterday must have been so difficult, I'm glad it is now behind you and you are back home.
Love you all.
Anne Marie
p.s. Katherine, my close friend and childhood next door neighbor, told me she was your nurse for the cath! What a coincidence! She told me you guys are such a sweet family and adored Drew :)
