3..2..1..liftoff.... Day 160 21APR09

Houston we are go for launch... roger... counting down...3...2...1... Go for main engine start... Ignition... We have liftoff.

Joshua's ANC this morning had rocketed to 1628! The GCFS really worked quick this time around. Since he has been feeling a little better and has stayed fever free they sent him on his way. After sojourning in the hospital for the last eleven days he is finally home.

I managed to sneak a bunch of fun pictures throughout the afternoon just to share with you. Joshua and I have a great game going where he tries to get his hand up before I can snap a picture. I have had to become very crafty and rather sneaky to get any good pictures. We have a lot of laughs when he beats me 9 out of 10 times. Man he is quick for such a small little guy.

I made a special dinner for Renee and Josh. I figure if I spoil them with gourmet cooking they won't want to go back to the hospital anytime soon. I 'll let you know how it works out. We took a nice walk this evening as a family for the first time in a while. It was a beautiful evening to be out and the fresh air is great for healing little boy's spirits.

So while I write this, Joshua is not sleeping in a little hospital room halfway across the county. He is not being awoken every two hours to check his vitals and administer his meds. No, tonight my friends, he is peacefully sleeping not twenty feet from where I stand. Home and safe at last. Let's hope he stays for a while.
