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.

I've been thinking about you guys this weekend and am so glad to hear you now have both boys home. I know that is something you have looked forward to for a long time! I will keep you in my prayers that things will go well and that everyone can get some sleep!
