9:50 PM Friday

I said I would let you know when Katie gets to come home and that time is here! She was told today that she will get to go home tomorrow!! Yay! Thank you, Lord! She is soooo ready to get out of the hospital. She will stay at her parent's house for the week with home care from the hospital and then go back for a check up. What an answer to prayer! I got to see her tonight and it was so wonderful. The past two times I was there she was in so much pain that she didn't even know we were there. This time she was talking, smiling and laughing. I was so happy to see her and so was Zach. He kept saying, "Mama, Mama, Mama" over and over and giving her kisses.

Again, thank you so much for your prayers! Words cannot even describe what they have meant to her whole family. Thank you!
