H.O.M.E.

After some sweet talking we are finally home!! Of course we have a whole slew of new medications, and Home Health just brought us some more medical junk so that we can continue with his breathing treatments, and chest therapy at home.

We also are switching to doing continuous feeds at night rather than bolus feeds every four hours. He will still get 3 bolus feeds during the day, but the rest of his nutrition will be during the night while he sleeps, which means I get to sleep too instead of waking up every four hours during the night to hook him up!! YAY!!!

Other than the fact that my home is becoming a hospital and we are in serious need of some organization, it feels really good to be home.

Now let's just keep it that way until surgery time in June!!

I have much more to write, but I am beat and it's time for bed. Those blood pressure checks every hour last night really did both of us in. It was like nightmare in vital land!!

Thank you for all of the prayers and support, I know I keep saying it, but I really mean it.
