Today Teagan is 7 weeks Old. We are so grateful for every day he is with us, we celebrate every week, every day, every hour, every minute, every second, every calm and steady breath! He is doing well, we had a rough day on Saturday, Home Health came to draw blood and after FIVE pokes, lots of crying (me), and a very nervous nurse we gave up and I called Bonnie. She suggested that we go to Primary Children's and have the IV Team do it. So this morning Me and Kori went up and had his blood drawn. We had to feed Teag's up there cause whenever we feed him in the car he pukes, so needless to say we got there an hour early to feed him and we decided to visit Gracie and her mom, Michele. They were hanging in there, I let her know how hard it is at home. I was not going to lie, it's nice to know they think your baby is well enough to go home, but it is a full time job and without all my help I could not do it. I think she appreciated the honesty. Then it was time to get the blood. It's nice to have a scheduled draw because they have to do on time. They were checking to see if the dose of his shots were still right for him. We had a really nice IV team guy named Cory, he only did one poke (not so fun on your b-day) but it went really well, Teagan slept through it all. When we were done we went to the third floor to let Teags tummy settle before the ride home and we saw our friends Charlie, Grace and nurse Ashlee,and Kristi. It was good to get to go home and the rest of the day was peaceful, the ward brought dinner and Teag only puked twice. Bonnie did call and say the dose was perfect and we wouldn't have to do that again for a month and we could do it the same way, with the IV team. Well, Happy Birthday Teags, we love you and your worth all the care it takes to keep you here on Earth with us!
Attitude is everything. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, because life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain.
