Home

We were released from the hospital today. My blood levels were normal and I'm fever free which means that the infection did not settle into my body. We are glad to be home although I'm not sure if I'm ready for "life" yet.

It was very sweet to come home and find our bedroom cleaner than it has ever been (I didn't know that Jake had a dresser top), dinner in the fridge, all maturinty and baby stuff stashed away, and an awesome basket full of pamper-me-products (I'm wearing my cute pj's as I type). Thanks Brooke and Sarah, everything you did was wonderful and just what we needed!

Jonah has been with my parents the last few days. I don't think he knows exactly what is going on. We are not very excited about telling him but think he will handle it fine. I don't think she was very real to him yet and probably lacks an emotional attachment. We will tell him in the morning when he returns from my parents. Will he ask lots of questions or tell us all about the movies he watched at Ninny and Papa's?

Norah is a lovely name. And her life was precious, even to those of us who never met her.
We have been grieving with you. You just take care of yourself. Don't worry about telling Jonah. God will give you the words and most of the time, they process things way better than us adults.:O) I remember when we told Addie, I was crying and she took my face in her hands and said, "Mommy, Don't worry, Jesus make you feel better." Their little words can be healing too. Sending you love from AR. Shannon

Jake, Jenn, & Jonah,

I've been so slow to write just because words seem so useless. We love you and are so sorry. Please know that you're in our hearts, thoughts and prayers.
