We're Home!

We finally made it home! We have been home since Thursday but today is the first time that I have had time to write. I had so much cleaning and organizing to do because Dan can't seem to manage it. Men!

Anyways, Luke was sent home on antibiotics that he will take for a few more weeks and he also is on all his normal meds. He gets acidophilous every day and also take a multivitamin. I tell him that he is lucky because he gets to eat food that other babies don't get to eat yet. In fact, he finds his yogurt to be absolutely delicious. He will cry after I take it away and give him his bottle. He still screams whenever he has to receive his breathing treatments so I am praying that goes away soon. It makes the time so stressful.

I went back to church for the first time in a long time yesterday and it felt great to be there. I have missed going but with Luke bing sick all the time I feel the need to keep him home. Our church has been gracious enough to understand that they can't touch Luke without using hand sanitizer and they even went so far as to put it in various places around the church. We were very afraid that people would constantly be touching him with dirty hands but now that it was announced from the pulpit that we wanted people to sanitize they all do it and don't seem to mind.

I uploaded allot of pictures so here are some from the hospital stay. You can see how he progressed as he was there.

His 3rd day there. I think he looks sad.

i know how stressful it is for him to cry during treatments (i had a kid who had athsma....not mine but practically like mine) her doc told me that it was a good thing because they are taking deep breaths so you know a lot is getting into their lungs

i HATE babies being in the hospital, its so unfair, they dont understand....but he looks so big...he looks like he should be a year at least (facially at least) he had so many toys, wqas that his own mobile or the hospitals? that was so cute that they let you put it there :)

that was all the hospitals toys. they have something called "childlife" there and they brought in new toys for him to play with sporadically. There was a play area too and he liked it because there were huge fish tanks but he got kicked out because he has to be masked.

My poor baby.
