I think we're going to get out of here today!  Richie's feeling really good, except for the fact that he doesn't sleep well and struggles to eat their food because it reminds him of getting chemo. 

The Dr. just came in and told us that he thinks we can go home in the afternoon.  He says the way Richie's looking and feeling there's no reason why they should have to keep him another night.  He's going to talk with some other doctors to make sure, and get Richie off the TPN (nutritional supplement though IV) and watch his blood sugar for a little bit just to make sure.  He's going to send us home with some medication and the prescriptions for more.   
Thank you Lord, and thanks to all of you for your prayers!!!!
