Back Home!

After another long 52 day hospital stay, Noah is finally home again!! He had another blood infection (pseudomonous again) which lengthened our stay. Our health care team worked really hard to get us home and so we are now set up with home IV (so we can give Noah IV antibiotics at home), and tomorrow we will start IV lipids (TPN) which we will run for 12 hours each day. Noah is looking great and gaining weight with the TPN (almost 11lbs!!). It will be alot of extra work here at home, but it is so worth it to be able to be together as a family again!!

Oh Yay God! Going home is SUCH a wonderful thing! We've been reading your blog for a while now and praying for you often. I hope things go well with the IV at home and we'll keep praying for continued health and growth.

Love you guys!
