We're going to Disneyland!!

No not that Disneyland.

The nurses have a superstition that if you say the H word (H O M E) then you will jinx yourself so they don't say that you are going (H O M E) they say you are going to Disneyland (and anyone who knows us well knows why this is hysterical). At this point if they told me I had to be hung upside down, dipped in pancake batter, and wood shavings, I would do it. So...

We're going to DISNEYLAND!

They snuck in the sleep study on Monday night (and I'm so thrilled it's done I can't even get upset that they didn't call me even though they promised they would). We don't have the official results except you did well but will definitely go home on oxygen.

As soon as we get the official results we will do your car seat study, get all the at home monitors, oxygen, etc ordered and we will be able to go.

I'm thinking maybe Thursday? I'm of course bugging them to get everything done asap so we can go.

Yesterday was the resident Smith's last day with us. We are so sorry to see him go but are thrilled for him that he has completed another step in his residency. Dr Smith was the one who had to put up with me most of the time and funny enough we ended up friendly. I credit Dr Smith with single handily (with a well timed jaw thrust) keeping you from getting re-intubated at one point during the longest night of our lives.

I've said it before it makes so much difference when the people on your medical team actually care for your child. I've worked with enough Dr's to know a great one when I see one. He's a great one.

You got your two month immunizations yesterday and have been pretty uncomfortable. We are giving you around the clock Tylenol and I've been holding you non-stop. Hopefully you will feel better today.

So keep your fingers crossed for us! We can't wait to get to the happiest place on earth!

Let me be the very first to say "Yaaaayyyy"! I do use the hope and home words lots (also bugger, bollocks, and a huge variety of others too) so am thinking them hard even if you don't feel able to. Every photo I see of that baby boy stuns me with his engagement and determination and (sure I have said this before) bloody-mindedness! Keeping everything crossed for major positive life changes for you all.
