We're Home!!!

Kalli and I made it home this morning. Our doctor came in this morning and started unhooking her from her lines and sat her up and said "how do you feel about going home?". I told him I was nervous about it but he told me I'd be nervous a week from now. She's doing really well. You wouldn't even know she had surgery except for swelling and an incision. She was smiling and cooing at the nurses which made their day. She's home and happy. 
I can't express how grateful I am for her nurses and doctor. I had THE BEST nurses for the last two days. Her night nurse was amazing and I couldn't have felt more comfortable with her. Kalli's first night was pretty eventful and she was so attentive and caring. Her day nurse was really great too. 
We are happy to be home and be a family again. I am excited to take a shower in my bathroom instead of the "Family" shower at the hospital and to use a restroom that isn't 600 feet from her room. 
Unfortunately the camera was left home this morning so we couldn't get good pictures of her leaving but here are some from yesterday. She's bright eyed and happy and we couldn't ask for anything more.
I know Joe already posted this but we are so GRATEFUL to those that called and texted about her surgery. Your thoughts and prayers were greatly appreciated and we felt your love through the last couple days. We know we have the best friends and family members. Thank you to everyone who took concern with our family. There are some really special people out there that mean so much to us and I think you know who you are. WE LOVE YOU!

We are glad to see that everything went and is going well. I guess this is a season for us to be tested with all the trials that everyone is having. We hope that all continues to go well and I think of you every day when I am going through our own Burst family struggles. We wish you we closer so we could help out. She is beautiful and we know she will heal quickly.
