The Best News

No were not going home from the hospital.

Even though we are still stuck up at the hospital, we got the best news today.

Ezra’s cancer is in remission….deep remission! That is what Ezra’s Dr. called it, I guess there are different levels of remission, deep remission is excellent!

So Ezra has the cancer’s butt kicked, now if he could only kick this infection. Sounds like Monday or Tuesday now that we will get to go home. We will still have to give him antibiotics at home , and pack his incision wound, which is no easy feat.

We don’t care, we will do whatever it takes just to take him home.

He has been off the steroids now since Thursday. I got a handful of smiles today, and even some conversation. It was more than I have gotten in 28 days! Its nice to see glimmers of the former Ezra in there, I was worried I would never see him again.

For now we are trying not to dwell on the fact that we are still in the hospital, and have moron nurses.

We are reveling in glee over the remission news instead.
