This little Peanut…

…went wee-wee-wee all the way home!

Today Joy and I got to take our little Peanut Spencer home! He hasn’t had anymore episodes since the 10th so after the NICU doctor gave us the all-clear this morning, we signed discharge papers and took our son home. Praise the Lord!

Over the last two months and seven days, Spencer has moved around the NICU eight times and gone from his birth weight of 3 lbs. 12 oz. down to 3 lbs 5 oz. and all the way back up to his current weight of 7 lbs. 5 oz. There have been so many wonderful nurses and doctors in the NICU taking care of Spencer and we’re so thankful for them and  for everyone’s thoughts and prayers during his stay.

We’re so thankful he’s home now and since he’s been in the NICU for over two months, he’s on a pretty good feeding schedule, about every 4 hours. Both Joy and I stayed home today to take care of him and we took the advice of so many friends and family with kids, “sleep when they sleep!”

Spencer's instructions for today? "Go Home!!"

There's no beeping or wires, but hopefully Spencer will get used to sleeping in his new bed.
