Strike up the band, we are coming home!
The minutes crawled by and the sound of beeping and buzzing and alarming on the monitors seemed almost unbearable today, but we have finally been cleared to bring Finn Joseph home. He experienced wearing his first outfit, his first breath of fresh air and his first car ride, unfettered by cords and wires and IV’s.
Car ride was a hit. He loved the bumpy movement and white noise. What a blessing to have him in our home where he belongs. If you think of it, please pray for our first night alone together.
Although we KNOW you care and want to continue to show support, we will not be accepting visitors. This is largely for Finn’s health and safety and a bit for our sanity while we transition from the storm of the NICU to our home. We are excited to introduce Finn to our church and gym families in a month or so once cleared by the doctors and when we feel it is appropriate. Meals are also taken care of. We are so grateful for your many prayers and thoughts during our time at the NICU. Though we’ll be back at Children’s many times (beginning again on Thursday), we are so thankful to be closing this chapter of Finn’s life.
I will most likely not be posting daily now that Finn is home, but I will keep you updated. Promise.
Thanks for following our journey.
