Dr. Fearon and Dr. Sacco came for a short visit this morning and determined that he looked "awesome" and that we could "pack it up" and go home. Home? Yes! Home! By 10am this morning, Charlie was home and happy to be so. When Jack and I entered the house, Charlie heard the familiar sounds of our sticky front door, our beeping house alarm and keys hitting the dining room table. He picked his head up off of my shoulder, smiled and let out the first giggle we've heard all day. Jack and I cannot thank you enough for your prayers and healing thoughts. Charlie's surgery and recovery went even better than we could have imagined. He did everything quickly, smoothly and ahead of schedule. We are amazed.
