Update: Life after ICU

Photo of Bertrand from last Wednesday.  He was happy to be home!
(Yes, the shirt says "chicks love me."  Thanks, Abuelita.)
Bertrand came home from the hospital last Wednesday.  His bedroom obstacle course includes: pulse oximeter, oxygen concentrator, 5 tanks of oxygen, suction machine, and all the tubes, probes, stickers, and doodads that accompany the former.

Despite the accessories, Bertrand is doing very well!  He is down to nighttime oxygen only (but he refuses to leave the nasal cannula in).

Antibiotics are amazing.

Bertrand wasn't the only one on antibiotics.  Victoria also tested positive for mycoplasma, and it is suspected that my 7 week long "cough" was as well.  (Cue the mommy guilt for inadvertently infecting the kiddos.)

Meanwhile, Matthew had big deadlines at work (and a birthday), we've been fielding an avalanche of emails, and oh yeah, we have a 5 week-old baby.

Please forgive us for the delay.

If you have sent an email, I promise we will get to it.  :)  But, it wouldn't hurt to follow-up.

Yep, it's blue.  Everyone thought I was going to be a boy.  Surprise!
