Praise God! Eli is home! The nurses pulled the last IV line from his neck this morning. Shortly after, we changed him into some of his own clothes and I held him for a bit to calm him down. He was just laying there in my arms, kinda zoned out and looking around. After a few minutes I put him in his car seat. He immediately recognized it as a familiar thing/place and started smiling. I think he knew it was time to go when we put him in there. He sat in there, smiling and talking, while we packed up all our stuff.
It didn’t take very long for him to fall asleep in the car. Once home, we took him out and put him in his crib. He fell back to sleep almost immediately. It’s good to be home.
