After 124 days in the Newborn Special Care Unit at Yale New Haven Hospital and at exactly 4 months old, Virginia has joined us at home. We couldn't be happier. We have an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for everyone at YNHH, especially the nurses, physicians assistants, respiratory therapists and doctors that cared for her the past 4 months. They saved her life, they enhanced her life, they changed our lives. It slowly became more than a hospital, it became home. I cried for the first time ever in the unit today. All my tears of fear and frustration were always saved for the car ride home, but I simply could not hold back the tears of gratitude and happiness.
We prayed, pleaded actually, for this day and we are so grateful to all of our friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers for the prayers, support, and love. A whole new journey starts now. The blog will continue and we would love for all of the good thoughts and prayers to continue for Virginia.
