Doing much better!
Sarah was discharged but Jack had to stay at the hospital. We were told he'd have to stay another week or so, but he actually got to come home a couple of days after Sarah. We spent most of one day sitting with him in NICU so Sarah could feed him and we'd be there to hold him. It was tough spending the night at home without him. Next thing we knew, the hospital called and said Sarah could "room in" with him that night and if he passed all requirements for discharge, he could come home the next day. Miles spent most of the evening with them and then came home to help with the other kids while Sarah spent the rest of the night at the hospital. Then, finally, baby boy got to come home the next afternoon. What a relief!
We are very thankful that Jack is doing so well! Sarah and Miles also have many very generous and kind friends who have been picking up the kids before and after school, taking them to soccer, bringing meals, and so on, and Miles' mom spent quite a bit of time with the kids while Sarah was on bed rest at home. I feel better being far away knowing that they have so many people who love them and want to take care of them!
