January 26 (PM) - Things are still progressing toward Grady Jeremiah going home Thursday around lunch time! We are working to get things ready for him, making final preparations for the transition, and saying our goodbyes to the nursing staff at the hospital. One of our big steps tonight was to bring his car seat to the hospital room to go ahead and get all of his straps configured for his small size. The nurses encourage parents to do this step to save time (and stress!) the morning of discharge. It also gave us time to let him sit in the car seat while we watched his monitors to make sure he did okay in that position. He did great with everything, but was a little bit fussy. We are hoping that is not what he is going to do the whole way home :-)Please pray for us Thursday as we travel back to Auburn (probably around lunch or early afternoon)... Pray for our safety as we travel, including no car problems. Pray that Grady Jeremiah will do well with the long car ride back home and be able to rest and enjoy it. Pray that our transition to home will be a smooth adjustment for him and for us.We look forward to updating you on our arrival in Auburn!
