Welcome back chaos!
Today was chaotic but in a good way, the way that I am used to. Michael is home now after a 5 week admission. Today consisted of 9 breathing treatments, 2 g tube hookups, 1 central line hookup, countless medications, a dressing change and the weekly wiping of door knobs, mattresses and light switches. That's on top of meals, snacks, diaper changes, refereeing sibling spats, baths and everything else kid related. Plus, I managed to get a load of dishes and a load of laundry done and supper cooked. I'm exhausted just typing that but it isn't as bad as it sounds. Matthew went to clinic yesterday and has gone from being completely off the growth charts to now in the 20th percentile for height and weight. He is also now big enough for a vest. I am excited since that will make my life so much easier. I am just happy to have all my kids back together again. I will take the chaos of a house full of children over quiet and boring any day. This is my life and while it may be hectic and crazy at times, it is also rich and blessed.
