It's time to re-define "normal"


He's HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Its been about the longest 9 days of my life, but it was all worth it because he is healthy, and he's home! His bilirubin went down from yesterday, and he's kept up the good feeding! I'm so thrilled to have him home... as we were driving home from the hospital, I made the comment to my hubby that *that* hard part was over. He laughed and incredulously said "over??"


I'm well aware that more hard parts of life are ahead, but I'm happy to redefine what I consider to be normal and move forward as the mother of 4 children. Wish me luck with all the juggling I have ahead.


And thank you to ALL for your numerous prayers, I felt a great deal of strength knowing that we were being thought of and watched over from above.

I wouldn't change it for the world though, congrats goes out to little Daniel, and the wonderful parents...keep up the good work.. now just have to get mine off the lights.. only good thing about it is that I haven't had to do laundry for him yet, cuz he's naked all the time...

Cheryl that is so exciting! I am so glad that he is home with you. I can't even imagine having to leave my baby behind in the hospital. Good luck with the 4kids thing. You will have to write up all of your tips on the blog so I can be prepared in a few months when it is my turn!

Hooray! I remember those feelings of, "Finally, he's home!" I'm glad that he doing better and that will help you as well. I'm sure this had been a rollercoaster and that you were ready to get off. Well, I hope for your sake that the next 20 years will be a mild rollercoaster ride, but where's the fun in that, right?

He's beautiful! Wow, I had no idea you were due so soon. I can't believe you are already up and blogging. Girlfriend, you need to put your feet up and let people take care of you for a moment. :):)
