The night went well! After taking a couple of hours to fully settle down in his new surroundings, Aaron slept well (between his feedings), and we slept a little, although we were keenly aware of all of Aaron’s little squeaks and grunts (the NICU and TCN were so noisy, that we never really heard Aaron’s sleeping squeaks).

At 2 a.m., Aaron weighed 2810 grams, or 6.19 pounds. We have our six pounder!

Nurse Jo and a respiratory therapist just wheeled Aaron out of the room, back to the TCN, for Aaron’s final check-up with the doctor. After we pack things up, gather Kathleen’s last 100 bottles of breast milk from the NICU and TCN freezers, load the car, and have our final chat with the doctor, we’ll be on our way!!

Love, Kevin, Kathleen & Aaron

Hi y’all,

Just a quickie to let you know that we made it home safe and sound. Everything is fine! More details tomorrow.

Love, K, K & A
