Family Reunion

Joey continues to improve day by day. The nurses are starting to talk to us about care "when he goes home", so we're getting more and more excited! He's eating more and more at a time, and doing well with it. Bella's birthday is Monday, and it would be a wonderful present for her to go get her brother from the hospital!

Speaking of Bella and Anastasia, they visited Joey at the hospital last night. Both of them had really missed him over the last three weeks (which seems so long and so short at the same time.) Since Joey's on the step-down floor, he only has a feeding tube through his nose, an IV lead that's not connected in his wrist, and some EKG leads. We thought that it was a good time to bring them. They both loved seeing their brother!

Bella got to hold him as soon as we got there.

Anastasia was not one to miss out on the action!

They helped our nursing student change his EKG leads.

They both got an old lead/sticker

And to plug them into the machine.

Bella loves baseball (we're a Nationals family…so it's more about the playing than the winning. :) ) She picked his outfit and helped to dress him.

Thanks for all the prayers; keep them coming!

  1. These are the most beautiful pictures! Thanks for posting them. No wonder Baby Joey is fighting so hard to get home quickly. He wants more of that sweet Sister love.
