Going home

The three of us were discharged from the hospital on Thursday around 5:00 pm. It’s both exciting to go home and petrifying to think there isn’t a nurse down the hall in case you think he’s choking, or not eating, or whatever else he may be unexpectedly doing. Here’s hoping we don’t do anything in this first week that causes him years of therapy down the road 😉

The first night went as well as we could expect. He woke up 4 times to feed and went back to sleep between feedings for 1.5 to 2.5 hours (so Rachel and I did manage some rest). Samuel sleeps well in his bassinet which also makes it easier for us to sleep.

    Way to go, Mom and Dad! We are having a very hard time knowing that we won’t see Samuel until Sunday! Are you wanting us to come sooner, maybe?
