Just the Three of Us

While the doctors were discussing our discharge - they also went over the rules and regulations of departing with our little "Heart Baby." We were informed that from today and for the next six weeks Elle will not be allowed any visitors, no outings to the store, church or any other crowded areas. We can only go to her follow up appointments. They told us that her little body will need to adjust to the outside world and the safest place for that is our house. They informed us that any infection, cold, virus, etc. would more than likely go straight to her heart....it is the weakest point until it heals. Lee and I were confused at first because most babies can go out of the house at six weeks old. Not our little bundle of joy. We even have a note to bypass any hospital/doctor waiting rooms.....that will be really nice! So - for the next 6 weeks - we will be quarantined. We want to thank all of our wonderful visitors that we have had over the past 7 1/2 weeks. We greatly appreciate the wonderful visits and gifts for our little princess. We are so blessed to have each and every one of you in our lives!

Yeah!!! I am so excited that Elle will finally be going home with you and Lee. Now we all just have to wait out the 6 weeks to come see her. I know we can't come visit, but please let us know if we can do anything for you. Love and good thoughts!!
