WE ARE HOME!!!!!!!!

This morning when we arrived at the hospital we started to hear rumors that it would be a good day for us! When the doctors came around for rounds, they just smiled and said, " are you ready to go home?"
Of course we broke down and said YES!!!!!

We had to go fill out paper work and wait for certain things to get down, but no one changed their mind, and here we are!!!!! It feels wonderful and scary at the same time; we are so greatful to all our nurses and doctors, we even got to have one of our favorite nurses, Erica,send us off today. She's the one that caught Bayta's O2 drop in the first place that probably saved her stomach and intestines, if not her life.

We have been blessed with so much love and support, we can't even begin to thank everyone. We love each and every one of you and are so happy to be home!

  3. Welcome Home, Bayta! We are all so excited that you were blessed to bring your daughter home today. We send you our love and prayers for rest and wonderful moments together as a family.
