Home At Last!!!

Yup, we are HOME!!! So the reason it was taking so long to get Sam up to his nutrition mandate was because the formula the hospital was having us use (almost identical to our formula) was a bit different than the one we were using at home. Which means Sam was getting gassy and uncomfortable because his system wasn't digesting it properly. So how did I figure out that the key to getting us home earlier than Sat. or Sun depended on the formula? The doctors... no, the nurses...no, the nutritionist...no... The answer is another parent who has a son in a very similar situation and is so unbelievably knowledgeable. Who would have thought that one tiny little differnece in my son's formula would have had such an incredible impact on his system. When I told the doctors and nurses they said wow, never thought of that, it totally makes sense. So look we all learn something new every day. Glad to be home... Stay tuned for our next venture. We will let everyone know what is up our selves next for Sam. We we have an exact date then we will let everyone know what we are doing. Thanks you all so much for your prayers and well wishes! Happy Purim, Happy Easter.

OMG, my prayers have been answered and yes I always believed that parents know their children the best and you need to listen to everyone and process all the information! I am so happy it was something so minut. Please continue to keep us posted and give him lots of hugs and kisses for us. We all have had colds for the last few weeks so visiting has been out of the question, hopefully they taper off now and we will be able to hug him ourselves!

All our love

Yay!!!!!! I am so happy that you are home. You are the smartest person in the world. It amazes me. Good job on figuring out the formula thing. It will be so nice for Sam to have his room and for you and Scott to sleep in your own bed tonight. Enjoy and I am so happy Sam is doing so well. We love you guys!
