We're Home

And it's nice to be home.

As soon as we walked in the door (9:30 p.m.) Jeff offered Bridgette a bottle and she immediately drank 2 ounces. And now she's at the table eating Cheerios. The hospital would be aghast that we've moved straight to Cheerios... but we just want her to eat. Now we wait to see if her intestines can handle it.

Please wish us well. As previously mentioned, we will return to the hospital on Saturday no matter what. At that point she will either be readmitted or have her PICC line pulled. It all depends what happens over the next 36 hours at home.

With that, our kind neighbors just brought us a yummy dinner, and Jeff and I are both very hungry and tired, so I bid you adieu for tonight.

Oh, I am so relieved that you are home, and I am sure you can say much the same. How wonderful to hear that Bridgette has immediately taken to eating and drinking; even if it isn't as much as before the surgery, it is at least more than in the hospital. And yes, we hope (and we will pray) that her body can handle the sustenance, and that you can handle all of the medical things until Saturday when the decision will be made on the PICC line. Truly, "there is no place like home."

And look at that big girl car seat! We are definitely moving up in the world.

Love you,

So glad she's eating. We'll continue to pray for ya'll.

YAY! I'm so glad she is home and eating something. Her tummy shrunk so give her some time and she'll be eating her normal amount. I hope you all had a wonderful nights sleep and wake up refreshed and hungry! Praying for these critical days that she eats, thrives, and meets all requirements from the doctors.
I wish I could help you in a tangible way.

Yippee! Way to move on to Cheerios. Did I see a forward-facing car seat? If so, she's bigger than Max who is still a woeful 2.5 pounds too small to turn around.
