Our first stop was the Fetal Center at Le Bonheur. This is Dr. Mari. He is the head of the department and basically a rock star in his field. (Most of the pictures below are courtesy of Dr. Jacques Samson!)
This is Mrs. Janet Tucker. She is the patient coordinator and director of the Fetal Center. She is so precious to us!
Catching up with sweet Kelly! She, and her partner-in-crime Laura, kept me sane while I was a patient at the Med. We missed seeing Laura, but we'll see her next time. Kelly is a sonographer. I am fascinated with sonography now, thanks to them!
Seeing Aunt Joi! We love her so very much!
Henry hanging out with Aunt Joi and Uncle Jacques. Jacques delivered Harper and Henry. There are no words to describe how much we love this couple! They're just awesome!
Harper showing off her mad skills. She is a walking (assisted, of coarse) machine!
Henry with Jennie. He loved her so much.
Harper with Leslie
After the Fetal Center and Le Bonheur NICU, we headed over to the Med's NICU to see all of our friends.
Just a few of the nurses that we got to know and love while we were there. Henry looks a LOT different know than he did while he was here.
Seeing Dr. Ferguson. This is another neonatologist that we had, only we had him while we were at Le Bonheur. He is just awesome.
He even got a wave out of Henry!
Catching up with everyone
Henry waving "bye bye" to everyone
And we were so excited to see Dr. Ravi, too. Dr. Ravi is the doctor who extubated Henry and also took him off of the nasal cannula. He was also the doctor on call the day Henry had his surgery. I think I might of made him a little uncomfortable that day because I grabbed him and bear hugged him when he told me Henry was going to be okay. :)
And of coarse, I could not visit the Med without seeing my friends on the 4th floor. These women took such good care of me, and well, my entire family for the 5 1/2 weeks I was there.
While we were there, I was able to finally meet Jamie Anderson. She is from my hometown but we did not know each other. She and her husband found themselves in a situation very similar to ours. Her twins were born at the Med. On this day that we got to meet, they were bringing their little boy home. Praise God! Their little girl is still there, but she is improving each day.
