I have been hoping and waiting to type these words....PLANS ARE FOR WITT TO GO HOME END OF NEXT WEEK!!!! AND...Melanie got a letter from CHIPS (a part of Medicaid) that Witt has been accepted AND a representative from the Rider 28 program called. He is moving Witt to the top of his list to come and evaluate!!! I am awed and humbled by our God...His faithfulness and His plan!!!

Witt's home ventilator is here and it's tiny! Melanie and Austan attend a trach/CPR class today. Austan has been talking to the gas company trying to get the gas turned back on(it had to be turned off because someone stole part of the pipe outside!!). Witt is doing really well on his diuretics. The only issue right now is with his feeds. The nutritionist bumped him up to 30 cal/ounce but that seems to be just too rich for Witt. He wrenches and has frequent loose dirty diapers so for now it's back to the 27 cal/ounce. This weekend will be a big weekend at Mel's and Austan's house as they prepare to be at their home for the first time with Witt!!!!

Getting ready for bed!

Mel, this is wonderful news! God is awesome! I am so thankful I was able to see you guys on Easter! I knew Witt had my heart, but actually seeing him in person and touching him completely filled my heart with such joy! Mel and Austan, you are such amazing parents! While visiting with both of you about Witt, plans for the house, and other things, I just thought to myself how you follow the verse Psalm 27:14 "Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord". God is our strength, our life, and our breath! I love you all so much!
