Home!

Samuel is home! The Byrne babies are together! We have our family under the same roof! There is no possible way for me to put today into words... here's my best shot :)

At about 11:30 this afternoon the ambulance pulled into our driveway... the hours before that were spent with a knot in my throat, tears of hope and optimism, and hands that wouldn't stop shaking. THIS is the best day!

I am at a total loss for words. Samuel is home! It's completely wonderful, joyous, and surreal :) Not sure when it will really hit us that he is here... I know that sounds crazy, but it feels like we have been waiting for so long... and now our wait is over, he is here! Maybe in the morning when we wake up and have ALL THREE of our babies with us it will begin to sink in. Wow.

This post doesn't do our day justice... I'll blame in on the whirlwind of emotions and lack of sleep :) Off to finish up Samuel's nightly routine and treatments, and to try and get some sleep. Not sure what the night or the next few days will hold, but not sure it matters... sleep or no sleep, events or no events, our family is together tonight. Our joy consumes us!

Pictures soon - I promise. In the meantime, to give you a visual - I don't think Samuel has stopped smiling. That little grin was a mile wide today... almost as big as his mom and dad's smiles :)
