James and I began this blog at the very beginning of our pregnancy with Wyatt to share and update our new adventures as we became pregnant and start the new season of parenthood. Sixteen weeks into pregnancy, I had to go into surgery to ensure our son would not come too early and shortly after, we found out Wyatt has Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). This is our humble attempt at being transparent and hopefully sharing the joys and love of Christ through this roller coaster ride we're on. And now to share even more with the new miracle on the way.

Day 109: Wyatt's Homecoming

Day109: We. Are. Home. Wow. It's real. All three of us, four if you count Ronix, are home together for the first time. It's been an emotional day. Bringing Wyatt home has been overwhelming in a good way. He's already keeping us busy with his schedule but God knows we can do it and we are. Saying goodbye to our nurses and NNPs was SO sad. Those ladies have been my community/"coworkers" for 109 days. I say coworkers bc we worked together to bring Wyatt home. I have officially gone crazy on friend request bc now we can "officially" be FB friends now that we are discharged. Sadly, we did not get to say goodbye to all of the doctors we've had and finding any of them has been quite the task. ;). Wyatt's ride in the car went great. He was awake for a while and then fell asleep. We got home and immediately had to get his milk going, we were an hour behind (we're back on schedule now). Ronix seems to like Wyatt. He licked him a few times and layer his head in his lap, asking to be pet. We have to watch that, his head is heavy and Wyatt's stomach is sensitive. Wyatt stayed awake for a little while and chatted with me while taking in his new environment and he's been asleep since around 7 next to us on the couch. Love listening to him sleep. The medical supply company couldn't make it out tonight, we left too late but should be here with the rest of our supplies in the morning. I'll probably sleep up stairs with wyatt on the couch. It's easier then moving everything down stairs. We are just praising God tonight for Wyatt, being home and are so thankful for his promises and how good he really is and has been to us!!


  1. I have been following your blog from a link on Jenny's blog since before Wyatt was born-- we have prayed for your little warrior and are so thrilled to hear this wonderful news! Praise God!!!
