Noah finally came home today. We are so thrilled to have him home. It is already a bit of a challenge getting his meds straight. Apparently after several changes and checks before we left the hospital Noah's nurse still got a dosage wrong on his med sheet she sent home and one of the meds was never filled by the pharmacy. Good grief. Poor Noah, he is still on 7 medications as well as his nebulizer treatments (which he HATES), he cries straight for 15 minutes when we give him the treatments. *UGH*

I get night shift so I am up all night tonight. We have a pediatrician appointment tomorrow at 8:00 and after that I'll get to sleep for a few hours. Noah is hooked up to his pulsox which generally is ok aside from when he decides to desat and then I have to reposition him so he'll breath more deeply. He desats most when sleeping.

I thought you'd enjoy the photo below of Noah arriving at home. He was pretty done with his car seat by the time he got home. Also, I included a video of the boys sleeping in their bouncers side by side for the first time.
