Wow! Time sure does fly once you are home from the hospital! I can't believe a full month has past since we brought both of our babies home from the NICU. Before we "lived" in the hospital, I took things for granted. I never intended to, but just like the rest of the world I was caught up with my busy day to day life. My nice warm bed...which now seems huge, a bathroom that I don't have to share with strangers, the freedom to pick up my babies at any moment, the cool breeze and sunshine as I walk to get the mail, ect...I didn't even mind the freezing temperatures today.
Becoming parents of preemies has changed us. We never intended for this to happen, it just did. It is hard to explain to others, but we see things in life differently. I guess our perspective has changed.
We owe a HUGE thank you to the doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, and occupational therapists of Dallas Presbyterian Hospital!!! It was their unwavering care, hard work, compassion, skill and dedication to our two angels that has allowed us to be a family at home together this holiday season. For the gift of life they have given our babies, we are forever grateful!
