Did you know there are disposable stethoscopes? That they just let you take with you from your hospital room when you leave? I didn't, and was kind of embarrassed to ask if we could take this one. But I knew Zinashi would love it, so I asked, and our kind nurse even wiped it down for us so it would be clean when we handed it over to our budding young physician. We also absconded with medicine syringes (tiny and giant), extra formula, diapers, and most importantly, this really cute baby. Zinashi checked her out and says she's a good one, so we're going to keep her.
All joking aside, we are so pleased to be home. We are settling in. We are putting things away. We are wearing our pajamas and hanging out, looking at the baby.
We are so very happy.
Thanks and love to all of you who have been following our trek to get this baby home. Your support and care has meant to the world to us, and to Elvie. This would have been way harder without you. Thanks for being the best cheering section a family could ask for. You're the best.
