Home, James.

We are HOME! Just got home about 15 minutes ago. I'm already laying in bed :) I've had several contractions throughout the day and I think I'm needing some rest so that we don't have to go to the hospital for me. Samuel was up till 4 a.m. crying and screaming. My mom and I slept at the hospital last night. Finally I was about to get up and rock him when my mom suggested trying to put him in bed with her. He fell asleep on and off lying propped up on her hip. The great thing is that he was drinking so much they took his IV out. The doctors prescribed ear drops at about 8 am and we finally got them at 9:45. After he got the ear drops he seemed to really relax.

He fell asleep on the notch between my hip and pregnant belly. He slept for four hours! After talking with the doctors they felt comfortable with sending him home. Right now he's on 6 different medications: amoxycillin, special ear drops, bethanegol (sp?), albuterol, flovent, and oral steroids.. not to mention Tylenol and Motrin. Our sweet little druggie.

We gave him a bath to help him feel fresh and then took him home.

I have a book and a box of chocolates. Time for a little TLC.

One of my favorite lines that's stuck in my head is the old,
"Where are we going?" (said by the chaffeur)
"Home, James."

Now, that's music to my ears!
