Hospital Pictures


Hospital stay #...oh, who can remember?

This is the outside of Cooks Hospital. Looks like a hotel...smells like a hospital.

This is the inside of the lobby. It's so beautiful to me. It looks like a castle.

I loved this light display.


This is where the pump was put in. Now he has an "Outie" belly button.

Stitches on his lower back. That just makes me hurt looking at it!

Obviously not too terrible for him. That smile blesses me more than I can explain!

Miles was hooked up to all this and more while in ICU. Can you believe that? Who designed this thing?

I bought this salad for $4. At this point I had already eaten as much as I could. That is one huge salad.

The wagon ride from ICU to the regular room.


The surgery was a success even though he had a rough recovery. I can't tell a huge differece in his body yet. The dose they have him on is too low to tell. The doctor didn't want to pump him too full of medicine before we knew how Miles would handle it. I'm looking forward to being glad that we did the surgery. :) I'm sure I'll be glad when everything is working as it should.
I got a statement from the hospital showing how much the surgery cost. Just the surgery...not the hospital stay. Ya wanna guess the total? How about twenty thousand dollars? My goodness. What more can I say?
Thank you for covering us in prayer! We needed it and I felt it. I appreciate all of you more than you will ever know! I wouldn't want to do all this without you.

(UPDATE)
One day later and a lot of difference! Miles stretched today! Randy pulled the covers off him this evening and Miles lifted his arms above his head and stretched and smiled. Randy and I rejoyced! It was a beautiful thing! He couldn't do this before...EVER. He can move! The boy can move! He's happy, he's pooping better (big deal really!) he's moving. REJOICE WITH US!!!!!

I'm so happy! It's gonna be great!

I'm sure that salad was good, but from the picture I thought maybe you had started a compost pile in the ICU! Looks familiar!
