Well we finally made it back to Richfield after a very long month!! Jenna was released from the hospital on Friday afternoon!! I felt like I was stealing a baby! It was a very different feeling taking her home from the hospital- only those that have been in this situation will understand that feeling! We took her to my Grandma Bartons to meet her big brother who was very excited to meet her! He was so cute with her he held her forever and every time I asked if he wanted me to take her he would say no. It was so sweat! He is going to be the best brother for Jenna. Grandma and Aunt Katie also got to be the first to meet her! It was also very weird leaving Nanny Barts house- we had started to feel right at home there! Gavin will miss her so much! We are so thankful for all that she did for us We love you Grandma!!
Being home has been nice, we are starting to get into a routine. Kurt is back to work so it is just me and two kids- so weird. I have to say that things are going pretty good though! Jenna is the best baby- very calm! She did have to come home on a tiny bit of oxygen and also with the feeding tube. She is taking most her feedings from the bottle but still gets so tired that she can't do them all. Ryan had to make the comment that we should have gotten the cordless model!! I agree!
I know there are so many people who want to see and meet her, but we were strongly advised not to have visitors. They told us children are not allowed to come around her except for her brother. They also confined us to our house for the next 6 months. I might go crazy- but will do what I need to to make sure that Jenna stays healthy and grows strong!! So if you are in the neighborhood feel free to drop a Coke off on the door step- it might help me keep my sanity!!
Please know that we are so thankful for all the comments and prayers that were made for our family- we feel so blessed!
