Life has taken another turn
After consulting with many people and having a good conversation with Sarah. I turned the car around and headed back home.
I am the type of person who follows my heart, not so much logic. I think I am logical, but if my heart pulls me in a certain direction, I usually follow my heart. This time was different. I literally had to say to myself "don't follow your heart, be smart." And it was hard. I wanted so badly to be in Kentucky today. I had already had a heartbreaking goodbye with Anna and Noah, the worst was over, I was packed and ready to go. (did I say heartbreaking goodbye????? it broke in 2) But I came back home.
Sarah, Mike and the birthday boy Ethan are all at home. He's doing much better. Sarah is reporting "Ethan-like" behavior once again! The nurses brought Ethan a smash cake for his birthday. How great is that?! . Mike did end up with a fever of 101.4, hopefully he won't get the stomach flu that poor little Ethan had.
