Brayden Is Out of the Hospital!!!

Okay, so my Aunt Kaye took Cher and my mom to visit Brayden on Saturday. When they got there, Cher spoke to the doctor and he said, "This baby shouldn't still be in the hospital". But, there was too much red tape to release him immediately. Cher ended up staying in New Orleans at the hospital with Brayden over the weekend. This is a big deal for Cher who is a little shy. She didn't know she was going to be staying so they had to go buy her a few things and make some last minute plans. It was good for her to be there to care for him with the hospital's supervision for a few days. He's going to be coming home on 6 medications that she will have to administer but otherwise he will have no special needs.

Andrew and his sister drove to New Orleans this morning so that he could pick them up when Brayden was releaseed. I just spoke with my mom (otherwise known as Nana) and they are officially on their way home from the hospital with Baby Brayden in tow! He is 4.5 weeks old and has never been outside. They said he cried while leaving the hospital but stopped as soon as he got outside and saw the sun!

Cherilyn and both babies will be staying with Mom for the next couple of weeks, with Andrew and MaKenna visiting on weekends. Kayelyn still doesn't sleep at night so it will be an adjustment to care for two newborns.

We are so thrilled that Brayden is coming home. I am overwhelmed and near tears as I type this, because there was a time when I was pretty convinced that we weren't going to see this day. But, here we are! Thank you, God!
