As many of you know, we are currently living a life-in-limbo. For the past few weeks, we have called Fort Smith Arkansas and the Mercy Hospital here, home. We've slept on hospital cots, hospital beds, a few different hotel beds and finally, a more permanent (and comfortable) bed at the Candlewood Suites. Our hotel is about a 2 minute drive from the hospital where our kiddos are currently living. We have settled into a bit of a daily routine and today by way of images, we thought it appropriate to walk you through a typical day and also, give you an update. Off we go.
We learned today that we will be here a couple more weeks. Weston is still having Apnea episodes where he forgets to breathe. Oftentimes, he recovers by himself. But this morning, a nurse had to step in and assist. Summer on the other hand, is actually breathing too fast. At first, it seemed as though she might have pneumonia but an Xray showed her lungs to be clear. The nurses are monitoring her carefully as this is somewhat abnormal. As you see from the photos, we've got it pretty good here in Fort Smith. But to be brutally honest, there's no place like home. If we've learned anything over the past few weeks, home is ultimately where we are as a family. And right now, that's here in a hotel and a hospital. Thanks so much to all of our wonderful clients, friends and family for making it possible to be here with our kids.
