Phil and I would like to thank our family and friends for the wonderful dinner this evening. A benefit was held for our family to help with our expenses. If you are not familiar with Alto, Michigan, a little background is in order. Alto is a small community where nearly everyone is a friend and/or member of our family. Tonight, we were surrounded by people that have been praying for and supporting our family forever, but especially since we found out about Caleb's heart condition. When I was a teenager, I was never able to figure out why my friends wanted to move away. I always planned on living where I grew up and giving my children the wonderful sense of community that I had. Once again, our community proved my instincts were correct and our children could not be any luckier than to be surrounded by people that love, support and protect them. Thank you to everyone that helped with the dinner and all those that attended. We had a wonderful time and it was great for me to be back where I belong.
Caleb had a good day as well. He is up to his goal volume of 20 mL/hr and seems to be tolerating it very well. He also did a good job being pleasant to the nurses while I was gone. He was fussy for me this morning, so I guess I tired him out. I left around 1:00 pm to head home and he slept most of the rest of the day. A good day in Alto and a good day in Ann Arbor, what more could we ask for?
