Good News!

WE'RE COMING HOME TODAY!!! WOOHOO!!!

I am so darn excited that when the nurse told me - I did a little jig. And I didn't even care how stupid I looked. Then, when the nurse practitioner came in to confirm it, I gave her a hug. I love these people. Seriously. There are so many people here that we've come to know over the last two and a half years and I love how they trust me and know that I'm a good mom to Harlie. That I'll take care of her and that if she deteriorates, I'll bring her back. The NP said that there are certainly those moms that just want to go home so bad, they don't do what's best for the child. Well, I've had enough ambulance and helicopter rides to know that I don't want to do something that isn't right for Harlie. That's for sure.

But, really, our only hurdle is weaning her oxygen requirements, and I've done that before at home. Many times. So, she's just waiting on the surgeon's approval (just a formality I think). And Tom's checking us out of the RMH. And then we'll be on the road!

After last night, I couldn't be happier that we get to get her home where she feels safe and secure. (More on that later.)

For now... YAY!!!
