Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Home sweet home

Maggie was discharged yesterday around 3:15 pm.  She was off oxygen for 24 hours and doing well so  it was time to go home.  She is still junky sounding and has a pretty bad cough but overall she is doing so much better.  We are all thankful for be home and sleeping in our own beds.  Thank you again for the prayers.  We really appreciate them.

My view again in the hospital.  Maggie was happy to be reunited with her favorite monkey
My view...again...she had to be put on oxygen in the night because she couldn't keep her O2 sats up. Please keep praying. This stinks. I don't see the positive right now. It just stinks.
We had lots of quality time and cuddle time.
Trying to find the positive in this...sweet smiles, precious cuddles, and my beautiful miracle. Doing a little better this afternoon. Still needs oxygen but hoping to wean her soon. For sure here another night.
Still as sweet as can be.  All the staff commented on her demeanor.  She was so happy and so sweet the entire time we were there.  She rarely cried and would smile at every person who came to see her.  I am truly so thankful for that.  It was already a hard situation and would have only been more difficult if she had been fussy the entire time.
What's up world?  I had a good night. Still on a little bit of oxygen but I'm doing well. I'm ready to bust out of here.
I took this picture after we removed her oxygen cannula.  I loved seeing my precious girls face tube free.
No oxygen since 11:00. 24 hours no oxygen and I'm busting out of here. Please pray my O2 sats stay in the 90's.
Thankful to be home and sleeping in our own beds.  We are going to hole up for the weekend and try to make up some important lost sleep.
Look who's sleeping in her own bed?  So thankful to be home!

Glad to hear you are home. Y'all have a had a really rough go and I am so very sorry. Let's hope that as Spring finally arrives we can all be outside and people and places won't be so germy!

So does she sleep in her nap nanny? Hunt sleeps in the rock n play sleeper - he has not slept in his crib yet. And I still swaddle him. NOT looking forward to when it's time to quit swaddling and put him in his crib. I feel like I've created some habits!
