WE ARE ALL HOME!!!

This is a Cliffs Notes version of today. I will fill in the gaps and add pictures tomorrow.

Caleb had a chest x-ray and it looked fine.

Caleb had his blood checked and his levels looked great.

Caleb had his circumcision today and I was grossed out. He had more bleeding than he should have, so we stayed longer so they could observe him. After a while, the bleeding slowed enough and we got to leave.

When we were nearly ready to walk out the door, Caleb blew out a diaper, got poop on his going home clothes and me. I bought a new outfit in the hospital gift shop and we hit the road.

We got home around 7:30 pm. It is now 11:00 pm and we have changed several diapers, given him 6 different medications, fed him twice (a major production) and found out he likes the baby swing.

Now we are going to bed to be ready for the 1:00 am feeding. We have still not adjusted to the fact that, if things go well, we will get to be in the same house tonight, tomorrow night, and for many nights to come. WOO HOO!!
