Carly is coming home today!

If you've read here for a while, you're familiar with Carly's story. She has been battling leukemia for the past year. Last June after a very successful bone marrow transplant, she developed a hole in her lung as well as several infections. When we would visit her, she was unrecognizable. She was dying. Doctors told her parents that there was no hope for her recovery and recommend taking her off of the machines that were keeping her alive. They didn't listen. We kept praying and hoping for Carly's recovery. And today after being in the hospital every day since last May, she is coming home!
