Kevin's Home!!!!!!

Kevin is offically home! As Rachel mentioned his line was pulled out on Friday. I flew down that same evening and we all packed, and packed, then packed some more. Kevin, Grandma Skousen, Jake, Scotty, Rachel and I flew back and arrived in Detroit at 9 p.m. Kevin was very happy (Mike is driving all of the stuff and their car back - THANK YOU!). It's perfect timing since he has tomorrow and Monday, when his friends don't have school. We're arranging a welcome home party for next Saturday. Details will come over the next day or two. We really want as many kids to come as possible. He's been showered with kind gestures and presents during the whole duration of his treatment. We ask people who come to just help us share the celebration of Kevin's homecoming, without the need for gifts. We're all extremely happy, and a little exhausted.

Feeling Blessed,

Eric

I can't tell you how overwhelmed with excitement we all are that Kevin's home!!! Next Saturday will be great :-) I can't wait to see him. Make sure you all get some much needed rest as the transition back will probably be overwhelming for all of you. I'll continue to pray that Kevin gets rest, eats enough to put back on some weight, gets his immune system slowly back and transitions back to home with ease (I'm sure he has a mixture of a million feelings). Tell Kevin I love him and can't wait to see him.
Love,
Laura
