Hopefully tomorrow, Wednesday, January 28th,we will be able to bring our boys home. They were delayed today because James' hemoglobin was low. He needed a blood transfusion and the doctors want to monitor him for 24 hours before discharging him. They wanted to send John David home today without his brother, so I started whining. Apparently the whining worked because I received a phone call shortly after and the case manager for Blue Cross said that John David could stay one more night. Funny thing is, "they" were really trying to get James out of there this past Sunday and I asked if James could stay two more days with John David so they could come home together. Of course "they" didn't want to do that but did allow him to stay. SO this morning when James needed blood, I asked the nurse what would have happened if we had taken him home last Sunday and she said we would have been readmitted to the hospital because he would have needed a transfusion and you have to admit for that. SO, what a blessing in disguise that he did stay with his brother a couple extra days to find out his blood count was low. That saved us from having to come back to the hospital. I am all for making sure we are READY, completely READY to come home. Also, blessing in disguise is that Jenna was really last week and over the weekend, so postponing their homecoming was a good thing!
All that to say that I AM SO READY TO HAVE THEM HOME AND IN MY ARMS!
I have been washing a preparing for them all day. So excited and so thankful that the day has finally arrived. I hope for a blessed homecoming tomorrow...
I will definitely post tomorrow night to let you guys know what is going on.
