Happy Thanksgiving


We hope that all of our friends and family are having a wonderful Thanksgiving. We were released from the hospital this morning. Nathan had a really good night and is back to his normal cute self. We can’t get him to stop laughing and smiling. I think he thinks he’s funny!!! We are glad that he is doing well. We still don’t know what caused the incident, but we are grateful that everything seems fine. The labs and tests all came back looking good. Kennedy had a great sleepover with her friend Kate and was teary when we came to pick her up from their house. We were happy to have our little chatty cutie back though. Things were definitely too quiet without her! Nathan has gotten SO big he is now 10 lbs and 23 1/2 inches long! Wow! Kennedy weighed 13 lbs at a year! I was planning to cook a thanksgiving dinner, but since our turkey is still frozen we will have to do something a bit nontraditional! This will be a thanksgiving we won’t forget! Thanks to everyone for your love, thoughts, concern, and prayers. We are grateful for all of you! We feel like we were given a miracle this Thanksgiving!

    Oh my I am so happy he is okay!! I’m not sure what else to say, but enjoy the rest of your holiday and we will be praying for little Nathan and your family!

    We are so relieved to hear that Nathan is doing fine. What a horrible experience. I absotuletly hate it when our boys get sick and to have gone through what you did would have been very traumatizing. We will continue to keep you in our prayers.

    HAPPY, HAPPY NEWS!!!! I am so happy that little Nathan is ok. We have been worried. Matt has been praying for you guys too. So, many prayer made little Nathan ok!!! What did they decide happen to him? Hopefully they gave you a good answer to this problem. I know you have had a big scare, and so maybe you can hold on to your Thanksgiving turkey for a few days, and then really celebrate.
    We are so happy for all of you. Love, Mama Inglet and Clark.

    Wow, what terrifying experience! It would be scary for anyone, but for you with your experience as a NICU nurse I’ll bet it was extremely horrible and frustratring. Hopefully it never happens again!

    To all the Call Family in Florida.
    We are filled with gratitude for Heavenly Father’s blessings. I know we can look back and think of how thankful we are for Natalie and her experience as a nurse. We are thankful for Brian and his hours of watchful care and his blessing. We are thankful for Kennedy who loves her baby brother.
    It was wonderful to see you all on the webcam and see little Nathan happy and well. It was a time to feel thankful especially in light of what has happened in our extended family.
    Love to you all and a joyfilled Thanksgiving.
    Love, Mom

    I am so happy to hear that baby Nathan is doing better. We’ve been praying for him and for your family. I can’t imagine how scary that experience would be. Thankfully it turned out alright. It was fun seeing all of you on Saturday on the webcam. We missed you over the holidays and can’t wait to see you! Take care and keep in touch!
    Love,
