Seth coming home TODAY!

Lord willing, they will be discharging Seth in a couple of hours. We are getting our last bits of teaching and the car seat test done and all the loose ends tied up. He'll be coming home with 4 machines(!): apnea and heart rate monitor, pulse oximeter, feeding pump, and oxygen concentrator. In addition, he's also on 7 medications: 5 through his feeding tube and two inhaled, all at least twice a day. I'm oddly excited about letting my "inner nurse" out in caring for Seth, largely because I won't be pulled in as many directions now that our NICU days - all 170 of them! - will be over. We certainly pray there will be no cause for re-admittance.

We should be leaving at 5:30 or 6 and be on the news tonight at 10:00. We will post the link; it will be Channel 11 (Fort Worth) again, and this time I'll try not to giggle hysterically while quoting Philippians 4:13. ;)

Love and gratitude,
Carrie
