Finally...home.

We made it home yesterday! And survived the first night. Little Dorrit looked pretty much like this for the entire car ride home:
We had to wake her up twice to feed her and change her diaper. Although all the stopping did make the trip longer, we did make it home by 2:30 to meet with the home health and medical infusion folks. We spent a few hours with them and then Mr. Rochester picked up Trotwood from where he had stayed the weekend. And then we celebrated Christmas with Little Dorrit and Trotwood got to open all of her presents for her. He was so excited to give her the little plastic monkey he bought for her at school.
And super excited to open the rest of her presents:
Over the next many months, Little Dorrit will be seeing many specialists and therapists. Mr. Rochester and I are trying to figure how to manage everything between medications, G-button, doctor appointments, bills, and normal baby stuff. In the meantime, we are all just trying to get to know each other better, establish a routine, and take things one day at a time.

Thank you for all the love and prayers in our behalf! We still have a challenging road ahead of us but we are so grateful to have our little miracle home with us.

So many emotions as I read through these last posts catching up on Little Dorrit and how you are handling every new challenge that comes. It is seriously overwhelming but you will be pros at this! Miracles happen and will be a part of your life with this little baby forever. She is adorable! I used to joke (after all the NICU and PICU stays with Porter) that he was our million dollar baby. You can't focus on the cost or it will make you physically ill. Just know that you'll find a way, your community, family and friends will be there to smooth the way. And in that, there will be more miracles. I'm so happy you are home and together - What a great way to start the new year!!!

So excited for you to have your family all together again. Even though things will be different and what many see as harder, I pray you all have the time of your lives.
Hope to see you soon!
