More Good News!

So we just heard from the doctor...if Evan can wean off of all of his tube feeding and just nurse, we'll be able to take him home towards the end of this week! He'll still be on antibiotics, so a nurse will have to come to our house every 8 hours to administer that to him through his IV. We're a little overwhelmed by the thought of having him at home without any nurses, but couldn't be happier to get to have our baby back! Thanks once again for all your prayers and support-we really do appreciate it!
He's opening his eyes again and is so much more active and awake now!
PS-We would love to have visitors, but it might be a little while before it's safe to have people in our home. His little immune system has been working over time and needs to get strong again. Once it gets stronger and it's ok to have visitors, it will be even a little bit longer before others can hold him.

brittnie- tara leavitt told me about your sweet little boy and i found you off of her blog. (i'm her sis-in-law). anyways, i am so excited for the good news of coming home. our second baby was in the NICU for 2 weeks, so I feel for you. it is scary being home without the monitors & nurses but you get used to it.
i guess i'm just saying, good job! and hang in there!

I love these pictures of Evan! We'll have to wait to see you until after we can hold him- it'll be way too tempting to just look at the little guy! We're so happy that things have been improving for him.
