Pray for a GREAT NIGHT!

Dr. Simon was thinking Wednesday just to be cautious, but with transportation and our jobs, we asked if we could go home Tuesday. The doc says as long as Edmund has a good night and gains weight, we're set for tomorrow.

Edmund will see a pediatrician on Thursday. Our midwives will still be following up with us. He'll have his First Steps Evaluation probably within a week. Our chiropractor will be seeing him, and we may be doing outpatient therapy until First Steps gets set up. So Edmund will have plenty of follow-up to make sure he's still doing wonderfully:)

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for all your prayers and support during our stay at the hospital. We were so encouraged by all of you!

Dennis, Heidi, & Edmund

Heidi, I am a 1st cousin to your mom and have been following your blog on Edmund. I am so glad for you that he is so close to coming home. I have to tell you that I have a grandson in FL that is 2 1/2 years old. He was born with no movement in any of his limbs. His feet were all curled up to his body. He has been having OT and PT all his life. He also has First Steps that comes into the home. He has come so far with the therapy he has received. I don't know if he will ever be able to walk on his own but he is mobile and gets around. The people that work at thereapy have been a great help to my son and his wife. Let them help and guide you alot. I love to be able to attend therapy when I am there to see what they do. Remember, baby steps count alot and they add up. Love your little guy and we will continue to keep him and you in our prayers. Cathy
