Thank You!!

Thank you all for your wonderful prayers, blessings and wishes!!

His name is:

Simeon Thomas

and he's a miracle!
We actually both went home on Christmas Eve.
It truly was a Christmas Miracle
  He was in NICU until that time.
I was with him as much as I could be, but no cell phones are allowed in the hospital, so if you didn't get a call,
that's why (or a text as some wanted)
He's eating and doing wonderful.

The mama, however, is not doing so wonderful.
Between pumping, feeding and trying to get some sleep, there's not much time for anything.
Plus, we have 5 appts this week regarding his kidneys

I don't even have time right now to unload my camera to show you a picture!!
He's beautiful.

I'm scared to death to try to figure out how to feed him in public.  (and pump)
He, because of his nose being open to his mouth, can't be around other people's children or public places.
If we do go anywhere, he needs to be covered up in the carseat and then that blanket needs to be washed
when we get home!  He could very easily get very sick.

I don't know when I'll be blogging again, it feels like a long time away.  After I unload pictures from the camera (someday) I'll post pictures.

Thank you Margaret for posting for me!

Thank you again for all your precious prayers, they mean the world to us!

  19. Beautiful name!!! I'm SO very happy for you! I think we all understand that you need time to be with him and adjust to life with a little baby (especially one with special needs) and to take care of yourself (as much as you can under the circumstances).

  21. I'm so glad that I checked in on you. I hadn't looked at my bloglist since last week. I'm so happy for you. Try and rest - I know, almost next to impossible. Just remember, ASK FOR HELP! People want to help, but don't know you need it unless you ask. Don't hint, don't beat around the bush, accept it!

  22. Congratulations Jamie!! Praying for all of you!! What a perfect name for your little blessing!!
