Alan eating his celebratory cake just moments before leaving the hospital last Friday. He hadn't been too interested in food, but when he saw this cake he HAD to have it. And we had to wait to leave until Alan had finished his cake because you can't wear a mask and eat cake at the same time!
In the van, leaving the hospital. Alan loved this ride. It was just a few minutes long, but he laughed and squealed the whole time, pointing and looking out the window. It had been almost 3 weeks since he had been outside!
Playing in the room at RMH.

Wearing his mask like such a big boy. Alan knows to get to go you have to wear your mask! (He will be wearing his mask any time he is in public for about 3 months.)

Alan's meds. He gets about 9 doses in the morning, 3 in the afternoon, and around 7 in the evening. It was more than this just a week ago, and more will be dropped in the months ahead.


Alan and his staples. Half were removed before we left the hospital, and the other half came out yesterday.
One of Alan's favorite toys, borrowed & sterilized from the RMH play room. This was taken on Tuesday, 24 days post transplant! Aren't babies resilient? And isn't God amazing!

That. Is. Amazing. WOW!!!!!! He looks so healthy, and like such a big boy. (not just in size--he looks like a toddler, not a baby.) Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful pics!! He looks SO great! Given the hospital's recommendations, does this mean you'll be staying at RMH for an entire month?
