Did I mention I am tired?!
Believe it or not, I did not go AWOL! After the wordy and entertaining posts by my guest writer, I am wondering if readers would prefer his style to mine. :-) I am glad Troy stepped in to keep all of you informed. He was even kind enough to print the posts/comments and bring them to my room. They certainly brightened my days, and when I couldn't be with Silas, at least I had some pictures to view.
"Thank you" seems terribly inadequate for all of the prayers, kind words, emails, calls, and cards that have been sent our way. There were some pretty rough spots, but as I kept mulling over the number of people praying, I was able to leave the situations in God's hands. After spending days in the NICU, I can only be thankful that I am home, and the little prince is with me, too! I cannot explain the feeling of knowing I would go home and leave Silas. I was able to hold together until my sister was out of the room for a spell, and I had a good cry. It is not enjoyable to be separated from your heart! Thankfully, things turned out differently, and the little guy and I came home the same day. Pulling into our driveway with him next to me was one of the best feelings in the world! It is amazing what things you take for granted that a test of life will make very sweet!
I will try to share some of the stories from my perspective, but I will not overload you in one post. :-) For now, enjoy a few more pictures. . .

Martha, I really enjoyed these pictures. I'm so glad you and baby Silas are home and doing well. He looks like such a sweet baby! I've really enjoyed being able to follow along with your journey over the last week and a half.

Martha, that was a sweet post! I am soooo GLAD that God intervened for you and baby Silas to get to come home together. I surely could NOT imagine having to leave my baby at the hospital and so I was praying HARD that you could bring him home with you! Isn't God awesome how he worked out all the details.

Enjoyed the pic slide show. Adorable baby, precious family, happy blog readers. =D

Love, Heather =)

Martha, so glad Silas was able to go home with you. I well remember the day I left the hospital and my baby was in another hospital 100 miles away. I cried all day.
