Big changes coming

Today Colby is 96 days old.  2 days ago, after we met with the oxygen company 3 days ago, Colby came off the oxygen.  It's been over 36 hours so we're hopeful it will continue.  Colby has been spell free for 3 days and only needs to make it to Saturday at 3pm.  Assuming he does that, he's coming home on Saturday at 98 days, 3 hours, and 2 minutes old.


I am thrilled beyond belief.  But a little terrified as well.  Not about having him home- I'm ecstatic about that.  I am so scared to walk out of the hospital the last time.  We will be closing the door on that chapter of our life.  We will be saying good bye to the last place we held Connor.  We will be saying goodbye to the people who have taken care of Colby for the past 98 days.  We will be saying goodbye to our "normal" for the last 98 days.  Exciting, but bittersweet at the same time.  As much as the past 14 weeks haven't been what we planned, we couldn't have asked for a better place for Colby (or myself while on bedrest).  

Odds are, next time I post, my precious little bug will be home and I will start the next phase of my life.  I will be a "normal" mom.  (I know I already am, but I will finally be in charge.  Without wires.)

Here we go.  :)
