{NICU: Day 39}

I’m not sure if I should even call this NICU day 39, since we’re not technically in the NICU anymore. I stayed here at the hospital with Joey in my room hooked to nothing last night. It was awesome!

We are just waiting on discharge paperwork, and then we’re bustin outta here!!

Joey is 5lb 14oz and 19.25 inches – 2 pounds and 2 inches bigger than when he was born!

The staff here have been amazing. I can’t say enough about the nurses who have taken extra time to get to know us and our story, to love on our boy, and help us through this transition. The doctors and nurse practitioners have taken such great care of him and have set us up with a great plan for his future care. And they recognize the love we have for this special boy and have told us what wonderful parents we already are. This has not been an easy journey, but its been worth it. Every drive, every day, every dollar… This moment almost 6 weeks in the making is so worth it.
