We Are HOME!


After what we feel like was a sequence of miracle after miracle, we are home with a healthy, stable, happy baby.


Dr. Lam came and did her final evaluation on P on Wednesday evening. I don’t know if we will ever have the right words to appropriately express our gratitude to her. She is a Godsend and I can only hope that every pediatric surgeon has the opportunity to learn from her at some point. Her gifts, her skills, but mostly her attitude and ability to put us at ease is something incomparable. You don’t know fear until you have handed off your baby to someone else to operate on them, and there was never any fear with her. We owe Patrick’s entire life to her and that’s something we don’t take lightly!



After she approved our discharge, the nurse went through everything we needed to know, and we were out of there! My parents met us in the lobby of the hospital with P’s stroller and we went to the hotel to celebrate with spaghetti and cocktails.



Thursday morning we packed up and flew home to Denver. It feels SO GOOD to be home!!! We have our therapies all lined up and we are so thrilled to be back in our normal environment and routine.



Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day, and there is so much celebrating to be had. Only one week ago last night we were in the PACU (post anesthesia care unit) waiting for P to wake up. Yesterday we got to go have a beer at our local happy place and cheers to the little guy that had literally thousands of people rooting for him.



To all of you who have been religiously checking this blog… we love you. The love and positive energy is so felt. Patrick had (and forever has) such an army rooting for him and our community has blown us away. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We hope to celebrate with each and every one one of you!
