Coming up Roses on *Day Seven*

John is doing pretty well this morning. He threw up once at 6:00am. Hopefully that won't delay his home coming date-although we certainly don't want to leave the hospital unless he is ready. We'll see how he does with breakfast.
At midnight Mom said he woke suddenly and said, "It's morning-let's go home!" He is refusing his pain meds (starting yesterday afternoon) and says he doesn't even need Tylenol! He has a high tolerance of pain and we were hoping that would help him in the end but we are surprised at this. -(Plus I think in his mind he doesn't want anymore medicine so he can go home. )
9:50am- John just finished his sponge bath and is getting out of bed for the first time today. The physical therapist came just now. She is going to help John Boy walk some stairs.
11:30am- John is resting with Jennifer in bed. We are waiting to be released! The PA (physician assistant) said John will be released TODAY!!!
1:10pm- The papers are signed -We're going!!!!!!!!!!!!
1:45pm - We arrived safely at the Ronald McDonald House. John cried on the way that his head hurt him. Dad and Daniel went to get his prescription filled right away. We are going to stay 24 hours here before going home to Maryland. More updates later.
