Home sweet home

No seriously, we really did come home today. I guess all he needed was his mommy's touch. He had a really good night last night. Didn't sleep all that well, waking up at every little sound. But not fussing, tolerating feeds all night. So when the docs came in this morning I was like, "We're out of here baby". He still wretches sometimes, and I don't know what thats about but I'm hoping with time it will go away.

We stopped to get something to eat on the way home and had a small taste of trach life. Our first glimpse at how people react to the suction machine in public. Jax was fine on the way home, but cried the whole time we were eating. I think he just needs to adjust to home life again. Setting up all of his new equipment has also been interesting. I think he's going to need to move into the master suite and me and daddy will move into his room and get bunkbeds, daddy already called the top bunk. Wish us luck on our new endeavor.
Now for some pics.
More cute baby feet.
Getting ready to go home.

In the car.

OHHHH YEA!!!! So happy you are home. My mom says it will be so much easier to adjust to the trach care in your own home. We are thinking about you.

Oh Lacey, I am so glad that you guys are home. Now you can get settled back in to your own routine again. I am anxious to talk with you one of these days so I can understand more of what having the trach means. Will he always be hooked up to the machine??? And by the way...you said you were jealous that we got to go to Disneyland....you were just there...for 3 days!!! I am jealous of you! But now I have a pass so can go whenever you come here!!

So happy to read you're home! I have no doubt that you will get into the groove of this new kind of living in no time. I bet Jax is thrilled beyond thrilled to be home. I bet he'll rest much better at home too.

Be sure to let us know how those bunk beds are working for ya'!

Take care and as always, we're praying for you all.

Oh my gosh!! I am so excited that you got released. I am cracking up thinking about you two sharing bunk beds. It would make intimate moments a bit scary - please do use the bottom bunk for that. ;)

Seriously though, I am THRILLED!!!

Thats just super news that you get to go home and be around familiar surroundings again, and get back into a routine, however new but that too will become familiar in no time. I am sure it will do alot of good for Jax too to be around his whole family.
He looks so sweet in the pictures and those cute little feet, you just feel like rubbing them against your face. Stay well Jax!!

Colleen said...

Hooray for coming home! I always say whoever invented the suction machine never had a child with a trach. It's so loud! I enjoy reading about your journey.

Suzie said...

So glad you're home!!! It's so much easier to be in your own place.
Yeah, bunk beds that's just what you need ;-)

Rochelle said...

YEAH! YEAH ! YEAH! So glad you are home. We will keep praying for Jax and a smooth transition this week!

Bunk beds...now that is romance eh? LOL

The VW's said...

Welcome home!!! I hope that your first night home went well! Adorable pictures of Mr. Jax!!

Sounds like you may need to build an extra wing in your house, just for Jax! I always joke that Gavin takes up more space in our house than all of us combined, but I have a feeling that Jax has him beat! They sure are little but they need so much room!

Prayers continue for your family! HUGS!!!

Anderson Family said...

Welcome home sweet Jaxson! He looks awesome in the pictures - hoping the trach is just what he needs. I am laughing at the bunk bed idea - sounds interesting! Did you get any sleep last night? Hoping you did! loves and hugs to all!

Stephanie said...

WHOOOO HOOOO!!!

Maureen Claypool said...

So glad you are home - you are always in our prayers. By the way take the top bunk especially if your claustophobic like me - yes we've slept in bunks at g-ma's house! Not fun! God bless you all!

The Snell Family said...

no need to trade rooms, just knock out the wall between Jax and the computer room, then you can be with him and still use the computer!! lol. I am really glad you are doing well and are home, wish we could visit but we are all sick now.

Love ya, Jules
