I want to thank all of you who have emailed, called, sent cards, gifts, flowers, cleaned my house, visited us in the hospital, brought/sent us food. We are so humbled by your thoughtfulness. I am going to do my best to thank each of you personally, but in case it's 2 years until I get to it or you sent me a ham and I thank you for flowers:), I want you to know it has all been so very appreciated.

Well, we survived our first 24 hours home. It has been overwhelming in both good and bad ways. The good is that she is bettter, our family is together, my mom is here helping us, I got to sleep in a bed! Lilah is doing well--she automatically just seems better at home, out of that sad hospital crib, and unattached to monitors (most of the time). The bad is just the adjustment to this new way of life for us...the medications, the monitor, the worry, etc. Paul has this really wise, old friend (old as in "length of friendship" not years) who has always given him great advice. His words today, "inch by inch is a cinch, yard by yard gets hard". Super corny, but so true! And, exactly where we are, or are trying to be...taking it one day at a time.
