I don't know if I have the words to express how happy I am at this moment!  I am also hungry for the first time in I don't know how long - weeks I think - having only eaten because it is a necessary process, to keep going!

My heart is going to explode with the sheer magnitude of happiness!  My baby is coming home tomorrow.  I should not call him my baby as he is a full grown man - but he will always be my baby!  I still have tears in  my eyes from the news!

I was expecting to have to get through another weekend without him.  We both were like -" really - tomorrow - you are not joking?"  I jumped right out of my chair and hugged my son and he hugged me back really hard!

Going through the checklist of "do's" from the doctors, and hearing how important and helpful it was to my son's recovery to have a strong support system - his family - something which not too many people have and which I am proud to say we are!

Affirmation from the medical community really goes a long way in my eyes to really know and feel that we are a strong, supportive family unit.  With all of my random doubts and worry and the unspoken looks and judgments from outsiders as to how I parent in order to have open and clear communication available for my children to have a safe place to vent is not a bad thing, not all words are sweet and nice all the time when you need to get something off your chest - it works both ways!

I am proud to say that I am happy!  Thank you all for your support, friends and strangers alike!  The encouragement, the prayers, the well wishes and the distractions all helped me to get through this very long and trying ordeal!
