Exactly one year ago, Nick and I spent the night in the hospital to prove to the discharge team that we were comfortable and capable of performing all of Theo's medical duties. The next day, we were able to bring Theo home for the first time. Looking back, our time in the NICU flew by. Yet at the time, it felt like it was never ending. (And now I think about how long ago it was that we celebrated Theo's first birthday, and it feels like that was ages ago! I think the lesson learned is this: Time is very precious, and it will pass quickly. Take advantage.) Never did we imagine that one year after discharge Theo would be approved for transplant.
