Home Again!

Just wanted to let everyone know that Julianne was discharged from the hospital late yesterday afternoon. We are definitely glad to be back home. :)

Julianne had a pretty uncomfortable night, but we think it was due to some constipation issues.

She still seems to be a little sore from the surgery, but who wouldn't be, right? Tylenol is helping with that.

Now we're just working on a feeding schedule. We're slowly decreasing the amount of time it takes for her to get 3 hours worth of formula (120ML). Its a pretty slow process because she's got one sensitive belly!

Julianne has both a Pediatrician and Cardiologist appointment next week. We're hoping for a good report from both!

Thank you so much for all of the prayers and encouragement. We are continually grateful. :)

I bet everyone is glad to be back in their own beds. We're so glad to hear that she's doing well.

We continue to keep all of you in our thoughts and prayers, and we continue to pray that Julianne gets stronger and stronger every day!!

I am so glad little Julianne is home and doing well! I'm sure every little step with adjusting to all the changes is momentous! Y'all are such great parents to her to guide her so lovingly and patiently through every step - what a great example to so many of us! I will continue to keep you close in thought and prayer as you all get used to a new feeding process and schedule! God bless you, Laurie Epting from Columbia, SC (a friend of the Butchers)

We sure do miss those chunky cheeks! Hope you are settling in at home. We loved seeing Julianne in the leg warmers. Take care, Adrienne and Anne-Marie
