Coming home next week!

Well, we wanted to make sure it was official before we posted another blog, and we don't know the exact date yet, but Scarlette will be officially discharged next week! I cannot believe it, the time has just flown by! But we are over the moon, we cannot wait until she is home with us. Yesterday we attended a baby cpr training class, and today is her apnea monitor training (the monitor that alerts us if her saturation, heart rate or respiratory rate is not where it should be). Next Monday hopefully all of her oxygen equipment will be arriving at the house. I will practice putting in her NG tube again tomorrow, and this weekend we are spending the night in the hospital and Scarlette gets to "room-in" with us so we can practice taking care of everything ourselves. This way, if we have questions, a nurse is still assigned to us, but we are learning to do everything for her without their aid. Then hopefully, she will be discharged by Wednesday. Mitch will be taking leave from Halloween until November 6, and my mom and my Grandma(!!) will be coming from November 6 to November 10 so I can adjust to having a new baby around the clock! Thank you all for participating in this journey with us, we are so blessed and your prayers have been so encouraging and answered abundantly. Scarlette still has a long way to go, and many more challenges to face, but I am confident that coming home is a definitive turning point for her!
