Thank you all for your wonderful wishes and prayers! I was able to read them while I was at the hospital, and they warmed my heart to no end that so many of you took time to be part of our adventure. Jules and I came home today, and we are doing well. She's sleeping and eating and quickly nearing her 48-hour birthday, and I am actually feeling pretty good myself, all things considered.
The days ahead hold a glorious Christmas Eve service, meals with family, giving of gifts, singing of carols, taking of pictures, and rejoicing in this tiny life--all under the blanket of a grander celebration of another amazing birth that happened 2000 years ago. Blessings abound, for a child is born.
