We're finally home!! Many of you probably guessed after not seeing any recent posts that we made it home- and are overwhelmed! We were released thursday afternoon after 33 days in the hospital! Trent and I left Seattle around 3:30 and arrived home at 11:00pm! (normally this is a 3 1/2 hour drive) We ended up feeding her 3 times and stopping to give meds twice while driving. We also had to pull over because she was crying and we couldn't see if she was ok... (trent and I were driving separately, I was alone in the car with her.) Getting in a 'routine' has been a challenge these last few days and Trent and I are exhausted! Teagan eats every three hours via her feeding tube/pump and it takes 1 1/2 hours to feed her. So she is eating every hour and a half right now! (If she takes her feeds any faster she usually throws up :( She also gets meds at 8, 12, 2, 4, 8 and 10! Teag is really fussy on and off pretty much the whole day and its really frustrating to not be able to help her. We're not sure if she's just sore, or if its her hand, gas, morphine withdrawals... etc.. We joke that babies need to have a little indicator on their forhead that says 'poopy' or 'my hand hurts', life would be much easier! Overall though its just good to be home and we're confident that everything will get easier as each day passes. Teagan is scheduled to go back to Children's hospital for hand surgery this tuesday to remove the rest of the infection in her hand from the iv infiltrate. They've told us that it should be a same day procedure, so we're praying that everything goes well and we can come back home for good! Here are a few pictures of us leaving the hospital Thursday!
