Chad update - early morning Wednesday 3/9/11

He's coming home today! At least that's the plan as of 6:40 am.

Please give God the Glory along with us! And if you would, please pray for the following:
  1. PRAISE! The infection was common staph, and not common MRSA or hospital-borne MRSA.
  2. PRAISE! The physicians, technicians and nursing staff have been methodical, brilliant, lovely, fun, caring, attentive and careful.
  3. PRAISE! We are so very, very thankful for the outpouring of support, comfort and physical care offered and received by friends and strangers alike from church and through Steph's connection with the Well-Trained Mind homeschooling message board. She even received an offer of help from a complete stranger -- a barista at Starbucks.
  4. Pain management at home, and the ability to manage sterility here. Eradication of the nausea and constant headache from the necessary, but very potent pain medicine.
  5. We have stairs. Lots of 'em. We need to find the best place for him to settle.
  6. For the infection to be completely controlled.
  7. Ingrid's health -- her bug just keeps coming back.
  8. Emotional strength.
  9. For full healing, ultimately, so that Chad would be able to return to his former level of physical activity.
  10. That his job would not be impacted negatively by this situation.
