Joshua had a bunch of chocolate bunnies left from the hunt at the hospital yesterday. So he decided to give them to all of the nurses on the TCE. He saved the biggest one for Dr. Obzut because, "She works very hard." It was a very sweet gesture.
It was several hours later as I was getting everything ready that the phone rang and Renee let me know that Joshua had managed to actually wrangle a day pass. They were on their way home for a few hours. Even though he had a fever of 101 after taking Tylenol.
Joshua had a fun time hunting for eggs. Unfortunately it took every drop of energy he had. By the time he was finished he was exhausted. It breaks my heart to see him so tired and run down. At least he got to be with his family for a little while and he got the chance to look for eggs with all of the other kids. After a late lunch it was time for Renee to take him back to the hospital. He got a transfusion of Albumin when he got back and promptly fell asleep. I hope that he and Renee can get a good nights rest tonight. I know that they are both exhausted from the last couple of days.
Jarrod and I will continue to take care of things at home with the hope that Joshua will be back with us real soon.
I have posted a bunch of pictures from today on our Flickr page Click HERE to take a look.
