Drum Roll Please...

We are HOME!!! We were discharged on Tuesday, Nov. 30th at 8:00pm.

It is wonderful and magical and terribly hard and frustrating and joyful all at the same time. We feel all of these emotions multiple times a day. I have so much to say and not enough time to say it as there will be a screaming child begging for my attention in 10 minutes or less.

So until I can write again in detail just know that it is such a blessing to have Lincoln at home. He is making HUGE strides already in the past week. He can hold his head up quite well. He grabs at the toys dangling from his bouncy chair and he smiles so much! On a really rough day he can just smile at me for  a minute and it makes all the hard stuff worth it.


I spend my day (and nights) walking around attached to a g- tube string, wound vac cords and of course a very precious cuddly baby. It is so fun and honestly such an adjustment- but I wouldn't have it any other way!

We will keep you updated- keep checking back, I have a gazillion pictures to post when I get the time!
 LOVES to all!

This is such wonderful, wonderful news! I am so very happy that your little man made it home in time for Christmas. Cherish every second of these first few days at home. It goes so, so quickly.

Yeah!!! Lincoln is home, sweet home!!!

This is absolutely thrilling! How wonderful! It finally happened, Lincoln is home! You both are so awesome, and I know Lincoln will thrive in the warm embrace and comfort that "home" is and with the loving care and positive energy that flows from the both of you, he will just continue to get bigger and stronger, and could he be more adorable?

This is one time, I can say for sure, the power of prayer works!

Love to you all
Mary, Micah and Lucy
