Day 5 - We brought Tristan home!

Praise the Lord - Tristan passed his jaundice test and I was completely cleared by my doctors! It has been a very long week for all of us in that we had hoped to be leaving the hospital on Wednesday morning. Today was a miracle, we honestly never expected to be leaving the hospital with our precious baby boy Tristan. Back on August 15th when we found out about Tristan having Trisomy 18 leaving the hospital empty handed is something I greatly feared and yet we did leave, not empty handed but with our precious baby in my arms, holding him so tightly to my chest and smiling the biggest smile I ever have as we excited the hospital doors and pulled up to our home. You can only imagine the excitement that filled our hearts and the hearts of all of our family. From the beginning, our two greatest prayers were for Tristan to be born alive and allow our family members to see him alive and that was really all we asked the Lord for. As the week continued we started praying for more, that the Lord allow us to leave the hospital and take Tristan home so that we could celebrate Christmas with him. We made it home and we are celebrating Christmas starting tonight!!!!!!!
