Big day today--Susan's coming home. I've been posting so much about Whitney that I haven't said much about how Susan's doing. Her incision is healing well--Lord willing, the staples will come out today. She's been in a maternity room two floors above the NICU, about as close to Whitney as we could get.
It has been harder on Susan than on me that we cannot simply hold and snuggle with Whitney. She did not sleep well the second night, so last night she received a little help and slept well though the night.
Until yesterday, we had so many visits from doctors, nurses, and family that we did not get a chance to talk. Yesterday, we had a chance to spend a few hours talking and sitting in Susan's room together. We thank God for the small blessing of a few hours alone.
I'm rushing around trying to get the house ready for Susan. Thank you to everyone for your prayers and kind words.
