It’s been nearly a week since my son was released from the NICU. This past week has been a whirlwind. Lack of sleep. Watching Scrubs during 3:00am feedings. Days where I don’t even go outside. And, holy crap, is it worth it. This little guy is amazing despite not doing much of anything yet. And today is his due date.
Henry’s Due Date
I am off to try to get some sleep. Here is the update. We were discharge about 8 hours ago!
A quick update about all the big accomplishments of the last 30 hours.

One Year Later
Today markets Henry’s Eleventh Day and the one year anniversary of the death of his father’s father’s father. He is doing quite well. The full update is in the link above. I will continue to provide everyone with updates during our stay in the NICU.

I started writing the day after he was born, not knowing exactly what I was writing. What ended up coming out was a 3,000 word birth story. You can find it here:
The Birth Story
We are counting down the days until our little one arrives. He should be here before the end of 2018. Here is the final update on the pregnancy. I will make sure to update more after the birth as things develop.
One Week Out
We are now one month away from the birth of our baby. Here is my most recent update. All things are looking pretty good. Keep us in your thoughts.
One Month Out
My wife is now in her third trimester. With less than 60 day until the birth, the complications have…gotten more complicated. Writing will forever be the way I work things out–so expect updates to continue as we get closer and closer to birth.
