BENJAMIN'S COMING HOME!!! (Yes, I'm shouting it to the world)

We have a discharge date!!!!! Benjamin is coming home!!!!!!! Yeah!!!!!! Amazing!!!!!!!

Monday, May 9, 2011 is the day that we plan to take Benjamin home from the hospital:)

According to Gary, I’m in the nesting stage as I’m trying to get everything organized & set-up for Benjamin’s homecoming. Let’s see:
-equipment training: check
-clean house: still need to do
-history typed out just in case of cold and needing to go to hospital: still need to do
-table set-up in Benjamin’s room for the bipap equipment: still need to do
-phone Valley Orthocare about orthotics: still need to do
-pantry organized so we can fit Benjamin’s concentrator in there: check
-oxygen supplies ordered from Vital Aire: check
-medication list typed up: still need to confirm with hospital which medications he’s all on
-finish painting Devon’s door: still working on
-order all the medications from Pharmasave: still need to do
-get all appointments for Benjamin sorted out: check
-charge Benjamin’s saturation monitor: still need to do

So yeah, I’ll be quite busy these last couple days before he comes home. But I’m loving it. Thinking about it, yes, I guess I am nesting but it’s all things that need to be done.

I am SO EXCITED!!!
