We are home!

I will add pix later once I find where my camera bag is....let's just say we came home with a lot of stuff. We were told that as soon as Paeton was eating/drinking well and if the bleeding was under control, we would be able to go home. Well, I'd have to say that being able to leave 24 hours after a pretty major surgery is simply a miracle. What a trooper our little Paeton is.

She fell asleep on the way home from the hospital. I was exhausted as well from being up half of last night. Jodi let the two of us sleep in the car while he made stops for food, prescriptions and other necessities. We actually stayed sleeping in the car for almost 2 hours, parked in the garage. We both woke up refreshed - just a little kink in my neck :)

Paeton is enjoying a snack with daddy right now - yogurt, pudding and prunes. We need a BM soon as we're going on 48 hours without one. We're going to take the afternoon in stride and see how things go. Paeton is definitely happy to be home and to see all her toys - especially the new ones she received as birthday gifts but hasn't played with yet.

We just want to thank everyone for all the love and support we have received in this journey so far. We feel so lucky and blessed to be surrounded by such amazing friends and family. Special thanks to the people that have done things for us in the past 48 hours who we barely know or who have been complete strangers. It is so incredible to us how God works in mysterious ways.
