Ansel Is Home

Ansel left the hospital today at about 11:30am, and is now at Jack & Wilma Sneddon's home in Joplin. Mom and Dad spent last night at the hospital getting briefed on the equipment attached to Ansel, mostly O2 and various monitors.

Feeding times are about every four hours. The scales showed his weight at 4lbs 13ozs when they left the hospital.

Leaving the hospital accomplishes a big step. For the next few months, we are hoping for boredom - quiet steady growth without excitement. Pictures will be posted since Ansel will not be taken out for visits until about April.

Thanks for all the support from our friends and family.
