Earlier last week I went up to Huntsman with the girls to visit Grandpa Judd. Generally the kids liked going up there. They liked to see Grandma and Grandpa of course, but they also liked ordering shakes and smoothies from the yummy cafe/room service up there.
One day Annie and Haylie discovered that the chair was just like a ride! They’d recline the chair and scoot on the wheels. Grandma Judy’s so much fun!! (Haylie was not in the mood for a photoshoot, apparently.)
I took Haylie up again the next day, and much to my surprise, Judd’s hair was gone! He had shaved it right after we left the day before. I think his head looks great! Especially with that smile.
What was even MORE surprising was that the doctors were telling him that he might be able to go home earlier than planned. He had gotten an infection and had several rough days/nights over the past few weeks, but he was getting better and his blood levels were improving and the biopsy was clean . . .and the very next day he was discharged from the hospital!! A week early. He is amazing!!!
Amy and I grabbed balloons, made posters, and got some dinner and groceries to prepare for his homecoming. The sad thing is that Brandon’s bus was 20 minutes late because it broke down, so Judd and Judy beat me to their home by about 5 minutes!!! Oh well, we tried and we were excited anyway!
Judd has been doing very well at home and everything seems to be looking good Leukemia-wise. We are so thankful for all of your thoughts and prayers and support! It’s crazy to think that it’s only been a month since the preliminary diagnosis—we are thrilled with the outcome and feel so very blessed by Heavenly Father.
