Today was all about preparing to go home! Justin and Rachael received monitor training this morning. I went to the hospital for -hopefully- the last time to visit. This afternoon they hooked Jimmie up to his home monitors and practiced using them. Unfortunately there is not room in Antepartum for them to room in. Rachael was pretty bummed about that. They did Jimmie's carseat test and his hearing test and he passed both. He looks so tiny in his careseat!
Rachael took some pictures of the journey into the NICU she and Justin have made for 87 days now.
These are the awesome valet guys who parked Rachael's car every morning and greeted her with a "Good morning Mrs. Gravitt!"
The sink where you scrub for 3 minutes. So Rachael washed her hands for at least 261 minutes (4 1/2 hours) over the 87 days in the NICU! (Actually it's probably more accurate to double those numbers as she scrubbed in most days twice!)

Say prayers for Justin, Rachael and Jimmie tomorrow as they start their journey home. Odessa is over an hour away. Also start praying for a smooth transition! This is Rachael and Justin's homecoming as well. They have not lived there since shortly after Christmas. Kathy has been working so hard to get everything clean and ready for them.
We are so EXCITED! (-:
