The end of our first hospitalization...WERE COMING HOME!!!!

Well, its official...Paul is on his way home with Ajay! YES HOME!!! Its a miracle in itself considering we were facing the most devastating circumstances only one short month ago! He has been through it all and is now on his way home. We are all so thrilled and blessed to be a family again, today, after 74 longs days living in a hospital apart from one another. 

Ajay has a severe congenital heart defect and chronic lung disease and tracheal/bronchial malasia, and will come home with a feeding tube and oxygen, a wheelchair, and over a dozen medications and breathing treatments. He will be receiving Physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, respiratory therapy and home nursing care here at our house. And will have many appts with his cardiologist, pulmonary team, endocrinologist, and immunologist routinely. All appts will be a whirlwind to schedule here at first, but we are happy to say he is coming home. It doesn't matter what we have to do for him. God will continue to provide and guide us further through the tough times ahead. 

Although the physicians wanted to do Ajay's second heart surgery in 12 weeks, we have decided that we will rest, get used to each other as a family, and enjoy the upcoming holidays. As long as its not a detriment to Ajay's health conditions, we will hold his second heart surgery until spring. Paul and I both feel that its important to be together and let Ajay become familiar with us here at home vs just at the hospital.

I will continue to post updates weekly if anyone wants to check in with Ajay's progress. Feel free to post a message if you care to have my personal email and I will send it to you personally.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the prayers, gifts, letters of hope and encouragement and love that you have filled our lives with over the last 3 months.

  3. Oh this is just the best report right now!! ~ AJAY IS GOING HOME!!!!!! :) Yippeeeeee!

    I know it is going to be a bit tough going for awhile, but I think you are up for the task. I also think it is wise of you to say no to the surgery for now, and just take a break from the hospitals and allow Ajay to get to know you at home. I'm sure that will prove to be a blessing for all of you.

    Continuing to pray for all of you during this time of transition, and that all goes well with his many therapies and home care. And that God continues to heal his brokenness and surprise those doctors in a good way the next time he checks into the hospital. HE is able!! <><

    So, SO very happy for all of you right now!

    Blessings & Hugs,
    ~ Tanya
