We are home, for now

Jean Alex and I got home last night from Sacramento. Alex is doing well, and he was a great traveler. He was able to have a seat of his own on the plane with his car seat! We made friends with a wonderful woman who made the flight go quickly.

He was discharged from the hospital on Saturday afternoon, and we stayed at the Sharing Place for the night before we left for the airport. He is looking good, his encephalocele is getting smaller and less full, but it definately has brain tissue in it. The doctor will cut that part of the brain off and close up the hole with a piece of bone. This will happen on May 2. So we will be traveling again soon!

Thanks to everyone for your prayers!
