We have been home for several days and are finally starting to get settled in! Thursday and Friday were pretty hectic just trying to get Ned in a routine and get our hands around all his care. He has settled in wonderfully, we really couldn't have asked for a better transition. Our biggest hurdle has been trying to get everything moved in and cleaned up in our house. We've also run into a coule of glitches with things not functioning properly while trying to get cable and phones and such as that installed over the weeknd. As of tonight, I feel safe saying "I think we have made it over the hump"!
Our most difficult part of bringing Ned home was the actual ride from Chapel Hill. We think he may have been a little car sick. I'm hoping he'll do better on the trip to his pediatrician tomorrow? Otherwise, he spent a couple of days looking around a bit bewildered but has now settled down and is acting like his old self. With one exception....he is trying to nurse a little bit. He still isn't taking any volume to speak of, but he is attempting to suck and swollow without gagging. For him, it is a huge improvement!
We've been so busy that I have hardly had time to reflect on how God brought us to this end. All I can think of in my head is that we have finally arrived to the only place I have wanted to be since last August...at my own home with Travis and my two boys. Above is a picture of Ned at home.....he looks like he's posing for the SI swimsuit additon with his hand cocked behind his head!
I just found my computer tonight so I'm going to sign off for now. I'll give better updates tomorrow!
