One Year Ago...

My heart is happy today! It's been one year since Parker came home from the hospital and to be quite honest - it seems like it went too fast. I can't truly explain the feelings I get thinking about it. I certainly would never wish what we went through on anyone, but if you've been through it - leaving your child at the hospital for more than the normal amount of time - watching him struggle to grow, wondering if you would ever get to bring him home - you can't imagine the emotions. It's hard and when that day comes to finally bring them home - its's a milestone! It's scary though, too, because you get so used to machines alerting you if something isn't right, you have doctors and nurses around to help you and you get sleep at night.

After 69 days in the hospital, I got to bring my tiny turtle, my little man, P-town home. It was scary, but so exciting. The car ride home was funny and scary - we drove really slow...probably should have had our flashers on :) But it was great to have him home, no wires, no beeping monitors, ect.

It's been a difficult 14 months, the things we have been through have not been easy, but I feel strong and like I am a good mom. God has really watched over us and Parker is thriving and that is what's most important.

Happy 1 Year Anniversary of being home sweet boy!
