So good to be home

Yesterday we spent half the day waiting for them to get Jack scheduled for an echo. Of course the minute I ran downstairs to get a sandwich (without my phone) they decided they could work him in so they paged me over the hospital intercom. I totally panicked trying to find a hospital phone, but was very relieved that it was for a good thing.  Jack was freaked out about the echo but did ok, then they left us waiting for 45 minutes to make sure they had the images they needed. Jack was starving, scared and due for meds so I finally snapped, told the nurses we were leaving and went back to his room.  

A little while later Dr. Kaza came up and said the echo looked good.  That was the news we needed to get our ticket out of there.  We let Jack rest until we were all ready.  

Jack got one final wagon ride out to the car.

Finally this morning his smile was back. He woke up and requested a show and some milk. We went outside for a bit, and he finally started playing with all the fun gifts he has received from people who love him. He's now taking a nice nap while I chase Tyler around the house. Ty is so happy to see his brother and loves the new toy he brought (the oxygen cord).  It makes it so he can always find his favorite person.

It is SO good to be home.

So glad you are home and doing well. I bet Jack will feel lots better being back where he belongs. Glad Tyler is so happy too. Give those boys a big smooch from me!

I am seriously in awe that you guys made it home in five days. FIVE DAYS! Wow. I hope that he continues to perk up at home... for a little kid, I truly believe that the recovery is so much better once he can be back to his own environment again. I hope his emotional and physical recovery continues at this super fast pace!
