4 Weeks Old Today and...Homeward Bound!
Well, today marks 4 weeks of life for our little Ez and, of course, 4 weeks since his surgery, too. I can't even explain what an emotional rollercoaster ride we've been on with this little guy but we know one thing for sure...he is worth it!
Today during our visit, they dropped the "D" word...yep, that's right...DISCHARGE!!! They said that he may be going home this weekend since he is doing so well. They will take him completely off of his TPN and lipids tonight and rely soley on bottle feeds. He will most likely lose some weight initially (he is already to 5 pounds, by the way) but then he should start to gain weight. Once that happens, they will send him home. We are so excited but trying to curb our excitement with a bit of caution as we know things can change from minute to minute. But, we at least feel like there is finally light at the end of this tunnel.
