whew! It has definitely been a busy couple of days, but so very good to have the boys up here with us! Corban has been taking the transition a little hard.....just being really grumpy and not wanting Colin or I to even go upstairs without knowing when we'll be back down! Every morning he makes sure we don't have to go anywhere. Colin left early this morning for his first appointment as an outpatient and Corban had to ask several times to make sure he was coming home TODAY! It'll just take time to get back into things as a family again! Keegan has been SO cute, he just has to hug me constantly, and then he'll sit up and just stare at me and smile. It's quite cute, he just wants to be with us and be held and cuddled and i love more than anything to finally be able to do that with both boys!
We are really getting antsy to come home to Medicine Hat......with another round of colds and flu going around, i pray that the Doc's let us come home sooner than later! We both just want to come home, and get settled again. AND i'm sure that Andy and Nat want to do the same. The sacrifice that they, as a family, have made is amazing, but they also, just need to go back to being the four of them! We all do!
It blows me away to sit and think of the sacrifice people have made for us throughout these last 5 months! The kindness and generousity of our family and friends still bring tears to my eyes! I don't know how else to repay you or say thank you, than to pray God's Richest Blessings over each and every one of you, and believe me, we have been!
God is such a good God, and i feel that only now have i really come to appreciate the true meaning of living my faith. After going through something like this, Colin and i had no choice but hold on to dear life to our faith that God would bring us through this, somehow, someway! Guess what?! He did! We have all learned such valuable life lessons, and through this process, our sweet Corban asked Jesus to come into his heart! Something that, at first, broke both our hearts, beacuse we wanted to be there with him when he prayed so badly, but we know walking with Jesus is exactly that, a daily walk, a daily choice. Now we have the awesome responsibility of sharing in that journey with him, and seeing where God takes him! This last bit of the process has been emotional for Colin and I. We are feeling a little lost, like where do we go from here, and what now?! BUT the Doc's are helping us through that and they are still here to answer our questions and make sure we are well equipped to enter this next phase! I guess nothing will ever really go back to the way it was before, but i'm not sure it's such a bad thing. We are all changed, and we have been refined and made better for going through this. I'm not sure what the future holds, but I know that God is going to be holding our hands every step of the way!
Thank you for your ongoing prayers and support, you have no idea how just that alone has changed us!

Luv, Melissa
