Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Thank you for the e-mails and for rejoicing with us that we are HOME.

This is Hannah on the quilt her Grandma Susan made for her. She's in the going home outfit Clint picked out for her just hours before she was born. I think every nurse we had made a fuss over the shimmery silver dress. It has such a soft lining inside.

I have a double ear and upper respiratory infection. I noticed my lymph nodes were swollen last week and assumed I was fighting something off. We are wondering if that affected Hannah's breathing or blood work results. We aren't really sure what was going on...if anything. A lot was going on at the hospital...inner politics, very new nurses, holiday plans of the dr and nurses, most of the experience nurses were out for the holiday, communication issues between nurses and the doctor, nurses angry with us because we make informed decisions about each procedure and don't just "go with the flow", etc, etc, etc. Our heads are still swirling trying to process it all, but God put us there and had us go through it for a reason.

It has been awesome celebrating Christmas with a newborn in the house. Things weren't picture perfect, but they were very, very good! Hannah has been in someone's arms all day.
