THE COUNTDOWN IS ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YES, YOU READ CORRECTLY!!! The countdown to Max's homecoming is officially on. NEXT WEDNESDAY IS HIS DISCHARGE DATE!!! Can you believe it??? Can you believe it??? (I have known for a few days but didn't want to jinx myself by telling too many people!)

There is so much planning to do...between final consultations with the many various specialties and training on the equipment and medicines, etc. But we are absolutely 100% thrilled and overwhelmed...and are now officially counting down the days!

YES, Max is coming home for the holidays...he truly is a miracle. If you don't believe in the spirit of Christmas, look into Max's eyes and you will feel the power of love and the Lord. Amazing!

The "only" holdup would be is if Max's cold worsens...so far the infection showed up negative and he is just battling a serious cough and major congestion, which has worsened his breathing. However, he is putting up a good fight and already feeling so much better! Keep up the great work Maxwell...you're coming home!!! YAY!!!

Thank you everyone for the many welcome home cards we have received...will be so fun to have in Max's room. Such loving, positive energy!

Hi Amy & Maxwell!
You don't know me, but I have been keeping track of "Mighty Max" :)and sending prayers up for a complete recovery. It's so wonderful to know that God is still in the healing business. Keep the faith and I pray that you both are home for Christmas, what a wonderful gift that would be for the both of you. God is good!!

WOW!! What terrific news! This certainly will be the most wonderful and meaningful Christmas for you. In the meantime, we'll be praying for Maxi-Max to kick that nasty cold bug out of his system. We sent him a special "welcome home" gift that you two can enjoy reading together.
All our love--

Hi Amy -

George and I are so thankful that Maxwell is coming home. Max will celebrate his six-month birthday at home and Christmas too. God is showing what HE can do.
Hope our present to Max arrived unbroken.
Love, Mary

Amy,

I've been off line for two weeks - we moved to Edmonds. So reading this post brought tears of joy to my eyes! So glad you'll have a blessed Christmas gift this year! You remain in my prayers! BTW, another little Charger will probably join Cameron's class in March. I don't know the family but perhaps they can join our Washington state group. God bless!

So now what are we all supposed to do? We are addicted to Max and learning of his leaps and bounds! I hope you don't stop your blog (although having him home isn't going to leave you much (any) free time!
I am so happy for you right now, I can't wait for you both to be permanant residents of B-ham!
