WE ARE HOME!!!

Pre Surgery

Daddy hanging out with the big boy.


Mommy looking exhausted and frazzled minutes before handing her baby over to the nurse. Yup! I broke down and cried.



Post Surgery
Isn't he so handsome without that tube!!!


Blyss visiting on Halloween. Boy did she every get dolled up by Nana. Nail polish and all. She made a lot of people smile by just showing up at the hospital in her outfit!!



Yup!!! We made it home. We got home just around 5:30 this evening. We are truly so happy to be home. We are all a little giggly and amazed!! This surgery went really well and everything went as planned even though we were surrounded by chaos around us. Bed shortages and H1N1 surrounded us everywhere.

Wysdom looks so handsome and happy without his ng tube. I think it will really sink in, in a couple of days when we really realize how easy it it going to be without the stethoscope, tape and daily worry. Wysdom is thriving and playing and has been a great little boy. He was a little fussy at times and cranky as to be expected, but has returned to his babbling, playing and smiling.

I am always humbled and aware that my situation is not bad at all. I am always touched by the people around me in the hospital going through such horrible times. I am always a little emotional when I meet other families who are going through such terrible ordeals and struggles. We had 4 different roommates which included a hernia operation, a ruptured appendix, a back surgery and a car accident. As well there was a horrific car accident down the hall and a teenage girl who was screaming in pain all day and night-I never got to connect with her or her family but my prayers go out to them.

When we got home today from the hospital my copy of GIFTS 2 had finally arrived. I am so excited!!!

I must say thank you for all of your prayers. I am so honored to be part of this blogging community that has proved me with such support, love and hope. I really didn't get to blog at the hospital because we couldn't get connected so I had to wait until now. Well I am off to bed, I am exhausted. Blyss kept us SO SO busy at the hospital getting into everything. Sleep, ha! Rest, ha! What's that? Iam looking forward to catching up on everyones posts and taking some new photo's of Wysdom. However that will have to wait a bit. Off for a H1N1 shot in the morning and some blood work for the big guy!!

Yeah for home. I remember the love of losing the NG and getting the g-tube. Heaven.

Tina said...

Hey thats great news, that everything went well and you're back home with your baby. Must be so lovely to have all the tubes gone so that you can give him big kisses on his totally kissable cheeks!!!

I've been following Wysdom's sugery...so glad you are home and that all went well. You always have such a positive perspective, and I like that!

Wysdom is gorgeous, btw, with or without the tube, but I know you are relieved to have some of the additional stress of an ng tube behind you. Congratulations!

Beverly said...

so glad that all is well and that you are home and getting some rest.

Beth said...

I'm so glad to see Wysdom's face all free and clear from the NG tube!!! Right on!!!

I'm so glad that surgery went well and that everybody is doing okay. Blyss looked absolutely adorable in her costume - just seeing her put a big old smile on my face.

RK said...

Glad to see him grin tube-free! I'll be interested to hear about what you think of the new process with the g-tube... oh, and is he on a pump for feeding or do you do bolus gravity feeds? Just curious. :o)

SOOOO happy for you all!
