Day 13 for Carson

Day 13, Home at last!  Praise God!  It is so nice to be home.  Thank you's go out to everyone at Hollywood Presbyterian, LA Children's, and the Ronald McDonald House for treating us so well.  We were truly well looked after in each stage of the process and we are very thankful for it.

Today was busy getting the final releases and we ended up leaving the hospital right at 5pm.  Hello, LA rush hour.  All is great though, this trip is complete as we finally have our new addition in the car with us.  Despite the slow traffic at the outset, things cleared up and we were able to get home at a decent hour.  Much to our surprise, the welcome sight of our house was even grander as it had been decorated for our arrival.  Thank you Leflers!

We were able to spend a few moments showing him off again.  We are so happy to have our boy home finally.  He did a great job on the trip, sleeping pretty much the entire way.  

Tomorrow night will be our mid-week service as we are having it a day early on Thanksgiving week.  We look forward to seeing you all there!
Now Mom and I prepare for the reality of an infant.  We are so happy to have him with us, even though it means that we are the ones who will be waking up in the middle of the night to care for his needs.  We're ecstatic now, but things like 3am feedings should do a good job of curbing that enthusiasm.

Thank you everyone for your continued prayers for Carson and our family.  We look forward to seeing you soon.  God bless you all!
