Today was a red letter day. After spending 5 days in the neonatal intensive care unit to clear fluid from his lungs and be sure there were no lasting effects from his birth we finally brought home our little boy today. Words cannot describe how good it feels to have him sleep on my chest or watch his two grandma's gush over him.
He is healthy and strong, cute as a button, and so sweet it makes my teeth hurt. Fittingly he (through his mom) was treated to a favorite birthday meal around here, his dad's famous sweet crepes. I can feel the "crash" coming as I feeling so high on endorphins right now that I don't notice how little sleep I have gotten in the last week.
Thanks again for all your thoughts and prayers on our behalf.
Erika, Tyler, and Scotty
( I decided I liked the "Y" after I walked out to the car and caught a glimpse of the trunk decal I have stuck to it. It was like, "Oh yeah. I like the Y way better.")
Amendment: - Funny thing said while preparing dinner (Mongolian BBQ at Mom's). "Hey honey do you think this piece of beef looks like Indiana?????? (looking heavenward) Nice try, but bacon trumps stir fry." (It did by the way look like Indiana.....but thats not that hard.
