He's Home!

William made it home today at about 2 pm and proptly started refusing to take a bottle or nurse... because he knows this is the one thing that really freaks his Mommy out! It's like Margaret whispered in his ear what to do to upset me. I'm trying not to get all wound into a big ball of nervousness and trying to remember that this is a big change for him, too. Hopefully tomorrow he will decide that I am okay for food.

Margaret doesn't have much interest in William other than wanting to be held while I am holding him. She also seems annoyed when he decides to cry. Other than that... nothing.

Today was the day for David's scheduled elective surgery. So he is totally out of commision for the next 48 hours. I can tell he feels bad for not being able to help out.

Tomorrow morning is Margaret's 18 month well baby visit. I'm hoping the shots don't cause her to be uncomfortable for the rest of the day.

I'll put up pictures tomorrow! ...exhausted already...

Congratulations Lisa! I have been praying for you guys and am overjoyed to hear that William is finally home with his family. Now you have two beautiful NICU grads to celebrate and your lifetime amount of NICU time is OVER!!!

I will pray that William's transition period goes smoothly and he starts being the little piggy that he is soon. A bit of white noisein the room always helped us with the boys when they first came home. Give Margaret a huge hug and keep letting her know what a special big sister she is (which I'm sure you are already doing b/c you are such a wonderful mom!).

Keep us posted on how David's surgery goes and how Miss Margaret's 18 month appt all of your spare time of course. Sorry for not keeping in touch over the past few weeks but things have been a tad bit overwhelming in our world but I have never stopped praying or thinking of you all.

Congrats again and enjoy cuddling your two babies both home together at last!

That's fantastic about William coming home. He'll eat soon. As for Margaret she'll get used to him, she'll probably want to help take care of him. Congrats!!!

I'm so Happy for you! Give those babies a giant hug from us! And your poor David :( I hope all goes well with his surgery! When all has settled down- you deserve a day at the spa!
