Just wanted to let everyone know that we finally made it home. We came home yesterday. It is so good to feel normal again. This month has been a blurr! I can't even describe it but time seemed to be completely warped almost like it stood still but flew by at the same time. Trig had to come home on oxygen but we were able to get rid of the feeding tube...which I am so thankful for. I was not looking forward to putting his feeding tube in without the nurses here to make sure that I was doing it right. Even though it wasn't hard to do but still doing things like sticking a tube down your babies nose is not something very pleasant! Trig had a pretty good night last night. He woke up 3 times but was pretty good to eat and then go back to sleep. The worst part was when Sam woke up at 2 in the morning throwing up and had diahrea. How could we be so lucky:) I just hope that Trig doesn't get it! We have been washing hands and using hand sanitizer and spraying lysol everywhere so hopefully it will just go away quickly without anyone else getting it.
Keith and I wanted to once again thank everyone for all the love and support! We have been overwhelmed with the generosity of so many people!! This has been a trying experience but one that I would not trade and one that I will never forget. That probably sounds crazy but I have learned so much these past 4 weeks, I have had my faith strengthened, I don't think that I have ever prayed so much in my life which has also strengthened me. We have met so many wonderful people and met people that were going through much harder things than we were and yet they were so strong! Not to mention the amazing Dr.'s and nurses, it was so neat being able to get to know them after spending so much time with them. I really will miss them! It is amazing what can happen when you are put into a situation like this. I feel stronger for having gone through it but yet am so happy and relieved that it is over and that Trig is home with us and will continue to get stronger and healthier!
