Well apparently, Ethan had not actually been using the bathroom to his full potential over that last couple of days! 🙂 This morning, he woke up with what one might call a “blow out.” Then he had a couple of more pretty serious diapers today too.
We had a scare with the catheter today too. It was only hanging on by the tiniest piece of tape. Obviously, if that comes out, it’s back to the ER to get another put in. So we went into quick action to get that one secured. So Mary ran by the pharmacy and grabbed some tape and brought him up here and I did a quick tape job on him right before church started. I bet people had no idea I had just taped up a catheter right before I stepped on stage to lead worship. Thankfully, we caught it before we lost it and had a problem on our hands.
Yesterday was a rough day for him, but today has been much better and we expect tomorrow to be better still.
It really has been amazing to watch him recover.
Friday night, when we brought him home, I wish I had had a camera to catch Micah’s reaction. He was SO EXCITED (and I mean EXCITED!) to see Ethan. He was screaming and jumping and laughing and made sure everyone knew he was home. Then he ran up and hugged and hugged him and kissed him. It really makes me wonder what exactly Micah thought had happened to him. We had told him that Ethan was at the doctor, but of course, he doesn’t really know what that means. I’d love to get in that boys mind sometimes. Other times, I’m probably glad I don’t know what he’s thinking! It was pretty awesome to see Micah’s genuine love for Ethan.
Blessed be the Name of the Lord. From the rising of the sun, to the going down of the same.
