Words Cannot Express ...
Seth is doing wonderfully well here at home. We have a visit with the pediatrician on Friday and one more follow-up visit to PCMC on the 18th to check how his incision is healing. It is very much like having a "normal" baby around here. The only difference is that he give him Tylenol every 6 hours and pick him up under the head and bottom rather than under the arms.
So, it seems that our little drama has drawn to a close. We prefer to think of it as a beginning rather than an ending. When we decided to blog about Seth's birth, it was our way to connect with family without making all those phone calls. With a brother and his family as far away as New Zealand, it was a simple way to send pictures and our story to everyone. We never dreamed that Seth would be born with any complications, and we never guessed that so many people would be interested.
To be honest, we were somewhat embarrassed that our little tragedy traveled so far so fast. It's a miracle to us that our little guy is home in a week and expects to live a normal life. We know many people who have suffered much worse with much less support and love.
So, we have struggled how to thank everyone who helped our family through this trial. Every phone call, message, text, email, card, snack bag, meal, and gift made each day a little easier. We have shed countless tears over the generosity of our family, friends, and neighbors. Every day we go back and read through our experience and your comments to feel your love and relive the miracle that has affected our family. We feel that as we dealt with Seth's surgery and recovery we got far more than we ever deserved.
So thank you from the very bottom of our hearts. Thank you for showing such love. Thank you for your faith and prayers in behalf of our son. We believe that it made all the difference.
