We're Home

Yesterday morning we checked out of the hospital!  Didn’t get much sleep the night before.  Simeon was constantly hungry and didn’t fall into a good sleep until 3:30am.  I waited an hour before falling asleep myself — he woke himself up a couple times and I was getting tired of falling asleep and waking up 15 minutes later.  When I was satisfied he was sound asleep, I went to bed and got a good 3 – 3.5 hours of sleep.  Well…not necessarily good, the bed didn’t do much for my back and shoulders.

We finally escaped the hospital around 11am.  And after stopping by Saturn to pick up my car, we got home and Simeon was hungry.  In fact, he was pretty much hungry for the rest of the night.  Yet another 2-hour feeding…tho this time all me – no bottle.  He also seems to have a knack for knowing when I sit at the computer.  This is the first time I’ve had more than 5 minutes in front of a monitor and I think I hear him starting to call me again.

Tegan was so cute last night.  Simeon was up until 1:30am (starting feeding him to sleep around 9:30) and at one point, Tegan was standing guard outside his door waiting for me to finish.  I called her in once, but after a quick peek in and getting a slight petting, she took her place in front of the door again.

I can’t tell you how nice it is to see Simeon’s face light up.  He’s his old self.  Now that I look back at the last couple of weeks, I see more and more signs that this surgery couldn’t have been put off much longer.  He was smiling less and less, he was starting to show a bit of blue around the mouth, he was having trouble eating without falling asleep – only to wake up 30 minutes later still hungry.  Now when he’s gotten enough food he’s all smiles and giggles.  Biiiig smile and cute laugh.  I’m so glad that everything has worked out and that he’s home and healthy.
