Alright...one more day isn't that bad!

When you have been in the NICU for 176 days, waiting one more day is not a huge deal. No, Faith did not come home today. This may actually be a blessing in disguise as we are still scrambling to get ready for her. Her equipment is still being delivered and we are getting the kinks worked out. Today was a special day though. We were very emotionally because we thought today meant saying goodbye to the people who have been our family for the past six months. We were a little said because none of Faith's primary nurses were on today. A little before noon Faith's doctor wanted to meet with us in the conference room to discuss discharge. We walked in and to our surprise our primary nurses were there- they threw us a "going home" party! It was soooooo special and soooo sweet of them to come to the hospital and their day off to share this special day with us. :) We have spent more time with the nurses, doctors, RT's then our co-workers or families! These people have taking Faith under their wing and treated her as though she were their own. We are very sad to leave, but eager to begin this new chapter in our lives (plus Faith has so many doctor appointments at the hospital we will be frequent visitors! But only is it is as alumni not patients!
Alright well let's try again tomorrow!
Thanks so much!
Brian and Jen

OkOK One more day..which IS today! I was wondering how it woukd be leaving all the nurses and docs...I am sure it is bitter sweet.
How awesome they threw a goign home party for you....That is very special and they really became attached to Faith and you two..I AM SURE! Was FAith the longest to stay there?
I mean what is not to love!
Now a new chapter and she finally can meet the rest of her family. How great is that!
I am sure you will have trying times getting used to all the "new stuff" at home ut you will do great! ALL of you have been through so much which makes life so much more meaningful and special.
Faith is a miracle and God has such great plans for her! She fought to live and is such a inspiration to many. I am sure other families that are in your situation will see DONT GIVE UP!
Please keep touch...I want to hear how the home coming is! TAKE PICTURES!
We love you
Aunt Susan and gang

Brian and Jen have shown such great strength through all of this. That is why Faith is so strong-she got that from her parents.
