By Thursday we really thought Zenock was doing so well, but they still wouldn't release him. Sunday (Easter) was the hardest day for me... especially not being able to be with family. We even asked the doctors why they wouldn't release him and they wouldn't really give us a reason. It was SO frustrating! Monday morning I was so ready to go home and when rounds came (all the doctors come in to discuss the patient with each other), I was ready to give them a piece of my mind and demand that they release Zenock, when they told me that I could take Zenock home! I have never been so excited in my life... it was like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulder! All my emotions from the last 9 days came crashing down on top of me. I started crying and I couldn't get out of there soon enough to call JC and to tell him that we were going to be able to bring our baby home!
Zenock lost quite a bit of weight while in the hospital. When we brought him home, he only weighed 4 lbs. 11 oz.
Zenock still loves to be cuddled... He gets rocked to sleep the majority of the time. How can you resist not rocking your baby when you only have a precious amount of time with them as a baby!
We sure love this little boy and are So greatful to be his parents! I can't believe a whole year has passed by, but what a year it has been. He has been such a happy baby and such a joy and blessing in our lives. We have so many great memories and so many more on the way!
We love you Zenock!
