Day + 56

HUGE news!  Elena is being released from the hospital today!!
We only stopped packing long enough to type this post.

The next step in our journey will be to the Ronald McDonald House. Elena will need to be less than 30 minutes away from the hospital for the next few weeks.
Her continued progress will be monitored by the BMT team. She will go to the outpatient clinic at the hospital two to three times a week during this period.

We can not tell you how thrilled we are to finally be making this transition!!!

After 66 days, Elena is leaving the hospital!!
We will be able to spend weekends together as a family!!

SO happy!
Thankful for all of you and your prayers!!

Praising Him and rejoicing!!!


In Him,
The Tates

"The Lord is our strength and our shield; our hearts trust in Him, and He helps us.  Our hearts leap for JOY and with our song we praise HIM."  Psalm 28:7
