Well as of Oct 1st we are home! He came down with an infection on Sept 18th which landed us with 14 more days of antibiotics because they were afraid it was meningitis. He is growing like a weed as well weighing in at 9lbs 4ounces and 21 inches long. Tomorrow would have been my actual due date had I not had him 5 weeks early. He is a nursing maniac and has never taken a bottle for a full feeding which frustrated the NICU nurses to no end. He is doing well considering all he has been through. He doe have a lot of long term health issues we will have to deal with but at least he is home. Ever since we have been home I have been using cloth on him since they won't let you at the NICU sad part is he is getting so big the newborn size won't fit much longer. He came home on oxygen as well so that is a learning curve but hopefully with time he will be able to wean off of it. I will try to post pictures again soon but he is sleeping now. Thanks everyone for their thoughts and prayers. It meant a lot to us.

Congrats and prayers going out to you and baby. My first was a 35 weeker at 4.9 lbs. She was in the NICU for nearly 3 weeks so I totally empathize with you. My preemie is now a wonderfully healthy little lady at 10 yrs old and doing great. Hoping you get to take your LO soon.
