Michael came home Friday at 3:30pm. The boys and I drove in to visit that day, just like the previous two days, but this time with an idea that we may be driving home with a car full! He healed and progressed so rapidly that week in the hospital, not without the expected speed bumps, like infection and fever and not eating well orally, but with speedy progression nonetheless.
It’s pretty incredible being in the second full day home with 5 in the house! Michael is doing great, on a wonderful schedule and up just one time in the night. He’s getting his rest and so is Mommy. The boys are thrilled to have their Mommy and new little brother home and, quite frankly, so am I. Forgive the lack of blogging the past two days. The blog was very therapeutic for me during the past week and I will continue to blog about things in my life that move me, whether it pertains to Michael or any other members of my family, friends or Road experiences. I don’t feel led to start a “Down Syndrome Blog”, although I’m sure I will reference some of the many resources you all brought to my attention. Michael is now a part of our lives. Down Syndrome is now a part of our lives but I don’t think it will define us.
