Coming home!

Tomorrow is the day that we all have been praying and waiting for for a very long time! We are going home tomorrow and should be home before the sun sets. It seems like we have been here for ever, but it realy has only been 7 weeks.Bradley will start physical therapy as soon as we get back along with occupational and speach.Bradley has been his happy little self each and every day.He is a true inspiration to alot of people including myself. My oldest son was in his first Taekwondo tournament on Saturday.He did realy awesome and at the end the presented him with a $1000.00 check for Bradley's bills.Channel 13 was there and did the story for the 6 and 10 O'clock news.It was realy cute hearing Elijah say that Bradley looks just like him.I have an interview on Thursday, so hopefully I will have a job very soon.I have been lowering the doses of bradleys meds for about three weeks and as of right now he hasn't had any in over 24 hours.He also has been getting all his food directly into his G-tube and and I haven't used his J-tube in over a month. It feels like we are on the road to recovery.Thank you for all your prayers and support over the past months.You all have helped us through a very tough time in our lives.Take care and god bless you all!

Bradley's Birthday

So sorry we haven't posted any updates lately.It's so easy to get caught up in the moment some times.You all have followed and supported Bradley since the beginning and we are eternally thankful.Bradley has been doing great!The side effects that we were told he may experience have been nonexistent.Which is a good thing obviously.We are down to our final 6 treatments...woot...woot!We can't wait to be home with the rest of the family and doing normal stuff.Bradley will start his physical, speech, and occupational therapy as soon as we return home.He has gotten so strong that I am sure he will be walking within his second week.When you stop and really think about this past year....it's amazing to be where we are right now....all the late nights filled with uncertainty.All the different doctors and nurses that we have met a long the way.All the different hospitals and beds that we have slept in.Dreaming of the day when you finally wake up in your home surroundings....for good.All of the thousands of people...praying and believing with us...that this day would come and even though this is not the end of his story.It certainly will take on a new beginning.
We love, thank, and appreciate all your thoughts, prayers, and support.You have helped us to reach god....he has heard and he is in our corner.
LOVE THE ALLEN'S
