We are so glad to be back home
Hanging out with big brother Edward and Cookie Monster
Edward wants stickers on his face like Austin
We were released from the hospital yesterday and took our second trip home from the hosptial with Austin(the first being his birth). I had everything packed by 8 o'clock yesterday morning. The nurse practitioner came around and wasn't totally thrilled with the way Austin sounded so we had to wait for the attending doctor to come see him and give the OK to go home. I was holding my breath and praying she would say we were good to go. She reluctantly said they wouldn't be doing anything there that we couldn't do at home so here we are with our oxygen tanks and 14 feet of tubing. Edward was so happy to see Austin and completely fascinated with the oxygen. Our first night was a little rough, Andy and I were awake most of the night making sure Austin had his oxygen on and was still breathing. Not that we needed to look at him, he sounds like a freight train rolling through he rattles so loud. So now we are just monitoring his breathing and waiting for his congestion to decrease. We go to our regular pediatrician later this week and will hopefully be able to wean the oxygen off soon. Thank you again for all the prayers, messages, and well wishes. We are still not completely out of the woods but so thankful that Austin is recovering well.
