Dear Friends and Family:
For those of you who are not on facebook or may not have heard yet, Emory is home from the hospital! We took Emmitt and Eli to a friend's house last night for an overnight stay and then went to the hospital to finish up the final stage of the discharge process. After all the forms, watching videos, and saying our goodbyes, we got home around 8:30 or 9:00. And, boy was it a long night!
Emory did not come home with any tubes or machines; however, we have to wake him up every 3 hours for a round of medicines and a feeding. Last night, he didn't want to sleep in between feedings though. So, we are very tired today and hoping that tonight will go better. We have several appointments this week including one to the pediatrician and one to the cardiologist.
Emmitt and Eli did not see Emory until after VBS today and they were hilarious when they came in the door. Eli just sat in the recliner and watched tv. He didn't this morning and still doesn't tonight want anything to do with Emory. He will look at him every now and again and say "baby". He just kind of does his own thing.....then again, he always has.
Emmitt is like a second mommy for Emory. He has held him several times, loves on him, helps me with things, etc. He was holding him a minute ago and Emory started crying and that upset Emmitt so much because he thought he did something wrong. He has been so sweet, has shared his toys, etc. It will be interesting to see how long that one lasts =)!
It's a good week for the boys to go to VBS since this morning from 6 till 9 or 10 was about the only sleep I got last night. Thankfully, Claude's a morning person, so he can take over at 6:00. I'm sure after some time passes, we'll get into a routine. But, for now, we've got a long road ahead of us and are taking it one day at a time. It is a HUGE help to not be travelling back and forth to the hospital and to have us all under one roof!
Well, that's our update for today! Sorry if it sounds choppy.....I'm trying to stay awake till midnight so after that I can crash. Until next time.....
Claude is more technical than I am, so hopefully we can get some pictures posted here on the blog tomorrow.
