Weekend at The Ronald McDonald House

Kollin got into town on Friday night! I went and picked him up from the airport and had quite the adventure. I got pretty lost on my way there, but found it. Then we got pretty lost on the way back. Oh well, at least we made it. The streets out here are terrible to navigate!
We spent the entire day in our room on Saturday since it was raining. We wanted to go do something with Tanner, but didn't want to take him out in the weather. We'll probably do the same thing today unless it starts looking a little better.
Tanner is still doing really well. We are so happy that he is holding up and we are finally able to spend some family time together. Kollin got to feed him a couple times yesterday, and snuggle with him a whole bunch.

This morning, Daddy woke up to this...
It was such a Kodak moment, I had to get a picture of it.

Hopefully today before I have to take him back to the airport, we'll be able to get some pictures that I'm really wanting.

We all got matching CHLA shirts (Tanner's is a 2T, the smallest they had, so it will drown him even more than his newborn clothes), and I want to get a picture somewhere at the hospital in them before we all go home.

I also want to get a picture of all of us by the Ronald McDonald figure here at the House before we check out.

I am still trying to update this as much as I can, but they don't have WiFi in the rooms here, and only downstairs in the kitchen area. Since our room is up on the 3rd floor, it's kind of a pain in the rear to come down here just to get on the computer.

We're having a great day so far, and hope you are too!


  1. Glad Kollin was able to come out for the weekend and spend some time with you guys. Yep the streets are CRAZY here!

  2. This weekend must be such a relief for both of you. Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

  3. I learned of your blog from "moosh in indy" and I just wanted to let you know my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

  4. I happened on you blog. My son was also born with a heart defect called Transpositon of the Great Arteries. He has his open heart surgery at Primary Children's.

    Just wanted you to know that I hope you are able to come home soon and that recovery goes smoothly for your little one.

    There is a local support organization for heart families in Utah and surrounding area:

    Please let us know if there is anything we can do for your family!

    Hugs & Prayers,
    Heart Momma to Jacob
