Well this morning I guess is going to be from the perspective of Jason. Rita is busy holding our little guy in these early hours. He had a pretty rough night last night. He started running a really high fever and his oxygen saturation levels kept dropping. He's on a pretty high rate of oxygen now to keep his levels kinda up. We are taking him home today. I guess that's a good thing in itself even if it's not under the circumstances we would like. There's nothing else the hospital can really do for his breathing issues and we would like to spend time just as a family together with the friends that we have in a comfortable setting. Everything has progressed so rapidly. He has not had the best morning. The child life people came by today and brought soothing music and put some things together so we would have some mementos of our little one. They made a hand mold, hand print and foot print, and took a lock of his hair and put those items in a nice keepsake box for us. The lady was really sweet. She was a little touched because she was actually giving Eli his first haircut. Other than that the ambulance to bring him home is scheduled to pick him up at 2pm.
We are just waiting to be at home and spend our time with our precious gift. It has only been a little short while but Eli has brought more joy to my life than any other thing. You just don't know how much you can really love something sometimes. He has shown me the true love I have for my wife and the more that it grows every day seeing her loving on him. The small things in life are really what's important and are really life itself. If nothing else he has taught me this. I thank all of you that read this and support us and maybe we'll have an update a little later on.
