They say home SOON!

Hi everyone...This is going to be very short and sweet.
I haven't been able to blog because I have been staying with Yale in our private room. Its great to be on the last step before home, but I am majorly suffering from what i affectionately refer to as "hospital headache". Tyler was nice enough to send me back to the room for some R&R before the long night ahead of me trying Yale on his feeds.

So the good news is we should be home by the end of the week. OT is working on getting Yale's feeds sorted out. (Already the J-tube is coming out and we're leaving the G-tube in) He is taking a little from bottle but really we have to work slowly to stretch his stomach out so he can tollerate his feeds.

Anyhoo.. I must go lay down because of this darn headache, but there is talk of going home on Wednesday. We've already begun our training for care at home. I'd love to go home on Wednesday, but knowing out history with actually doing something when they forcast it, I'm expecting something more of lets say friday.... WHICH IS AMAZING!

So anyhoo...I doubt I'll get around to blogging againg until we are home and I can have regular access to the laptop again.... until then.....

Oh yeah... just want everyone to say a little prayer for Kati and Bruce. They are distant aquaintances of mine through the HLHS support group on Yahoo. Their ADORABLE son Seamus lost his battle and has gone to play with the angels. I wish them some comfort in this time of heavy hearts and sorrow.

see what I always say about the power of positive thinking. I have been sending positive vibes to you and Yale and now you are almost going home. I don't think I can take all the credit tho...you have a wonderful team of doctors and nurses who have taked great care of your miracle child. Hang in there its not long now. Love Mommy

I am sorry to hear about the baby that passed...it is those times where we realize exactly how thankful we should be for what we have..which should be every day.. but that is truly a heartbreaking reminder. Best wishes for them.
Read you this weekend and a warm and safe travel home...by train I hope!

That's such good news that you'll be going home soon. I'm so excited for you and anxious too as I know you must be wondering if you'll be able to deal when your at home. I'm sure that you'll have lots of support but if you want to talk, I'll be around to listen.
My sincerest condolences to Tami and Bruce on the loss of their son. May he rest in peace and they soon find happiness again.

Love, Hugs and Kisses
Bec
