Cohen Alan – Day 28, Finally Home

Four weeks to the day and almost to the hour, Cohen Alan left the NICU at Children’s Hospital and rode his chariot home. What a difference four weeks make. Make no mistake, he is still quite small. But 1 1/2 lbs later and passing all of his required milestones meant “home” would be the new office.

If you had to be in the NICU then we believe we were in the right place. The Nursing Staff all the way down to our favorite cashier in the Cafeteria made our time a very good experience. Dr. Kessinger kept us informed and encouraged. The variety of shift nurses must be commended. How they handle the ups and downs in the NICU offering great care and compassion is a tribute to their sense of vocation – God’s angels for us.

We cannot fail to mention Dr’s Craig and Nightingale who were stars in our great story. But, as you have noticed over the past 28 days I have been quite content to interrupt my normal content to exhibit the nuttiness characteristic of a grandparent.

It is early in the week for a Friday Photo, but in celebration of his arrival at home, I offer a Terrific Tuesday Photo.
