Update on Tommie

I'm sending this post via email, so hopefully it will even post. I just wanted to give a quick update on Tommie.
 
He's doing (fairly) well in most ways. He's started eating again (Frosted Flakes and a banana yesterday) and is finally strong enough to actually get up (with help) to go to the bathroom and stuff. But now he's developed some sort of highly contageous stomach virus or something, so he's quaranteened at the hospital and all visitors have to wear gloves, masks, etc. Steve talked to him on the phone last night, and as soon as Steve said hello, Tommie started sobbing to him about how he just wants to come home, be normal again, etc.
 
Steve got him calmed down, but the poor kid really needs to get out of that hospital. Supposedly, once they get this virus under control, he could possibly come home (in around 2 weeks). So right now, we're all just praying that's the case. He's still VERY weak, but the sooner he can kick all of these other stupid viruses and infections he keeps getting, he can start to mend, ya know?
 
Anyway, that's the update. Continued prayers are welcomed!
 
My grandfather is in the hospital now too, but I'm at work and can't blog about that now. I'll update on him later. Sigh. But prayers for him would also be much appreciated!

Still keeping Tommie in my thoughts and prayers. I know he'll beat this bug he has.

My prayers for both. I can't imagine being so young like Tommy and dealing with mortality. I can't wait to see the post of "He IS HOME!"
