Today was our first full day home after being at the NICU for 83 days! And man did it feel good to be home! Charlie had a good first night in his new crib. He slept most the night but we did wake up a few times to his monitor beeping; but each time we checked him he was ok.
(Scroll down for updates on Charlie.)
Charlie was born at home on February 27th at 5:29 p.m. You can read more about the birth here. After about 5 hours we called 911 because we noticed how much he struggled to breathe. In the Emergency Room they suctioned out a lot of fluid from his lungs, nose and mouth. Then they admitted him to the NICU where they diagnosed him with Pierre Robin sequence.
Tonight we celebrated Emma’s kindergarten graduation from Firm Foundation Christian School… and it was awesome! The night began with the kids saying, in unison, scriptures they had memorized followed by songs like, “This Little Light of Mine.”
