It is official this time...we are home!

A wee bit of weight gain today and bloodwork looked ok, so Noah has been officially kicked out. Hopefully we have found the right combination of saline flushes and extra potassium to keep him stable without a line. It is hard to believe we have come home without a central line. It all feels a bit surreal right TPN to hook fluids to IV antibiotics... This will take some getting used to. Depending completely on his gut is still very frightening for me. Only time will tell if this can be a long term solution, but we will enjoy any time we get without a line to complicate our lives and give us a bit more freedom. This will give Noah's body time to completely heal and not be knocked down again in a few weeks with another line infection. Who would have thought a few months ago that this would even be possible?? Even a week ago I doubted that we would ever get Noah home without a line.

It is definately a day to celebrate God's goodness and faithfulness.
