Jasmine is home now!!! We officially were in the hospital 14 months...WOW!!! Jazzy has been home for 1month and 4 days!!! We are adjusting to life...as we know it now!! I can't imagine my life without my daughter...I'm very blessed to have her with me...I want to say THANK YOU to all the nurses, doctors, and medical staff for everything...many thanks are sent your way!!! I will never forget the last 14 months...I have changed so much in every way...my thoughts ponder the many lives that have been lost in 14 months...to the families who had a dream and lost it all so quickly...I will never forget these people and truly I send my love to all of them...Life can change so quickly ...I kiss my daughter all the time and tell her how much I love her...I'm so grateful she is sharing her life with us...Take care and keep posted ...watch Jasmine grow!!!!

Wow! So glad to hear you are home. I was just asking Amy a couple days ago if she had heard anything. We continue to pray for you and know you are so glad to be setteling into your home routine. Reagan gets more precious to us every day. We usually get to keep her 1 night aon the weekend when Amy is working and Daddy has work he needs to do. I just sit and look at her and marvel at what a miracle she is. Granny I know you and Pawpaw would love to live close by to spoil her. I figure these girls need a good spoiling for many years to come after what they have been through. So glad Jazzy is doing so well. Go Jazzy GO!!!!!! She looks like a big girl! Lots of hugs to all of you! Love the pictures!!!!

Oh My Goodness...Jazzy you are so cute and getting so big. I am thrilled to hear that you are at home with your mommy and daddy. I know they are spoiling you rotten. I am also sure that your granny misses you very much.I can't wait to see all those sandcastles that you are gonna make!
If you are back in NC on Sept 19th we are having our FMC NICU reunion and you know we would all love to see you there.
Love and Hugs to you Jazzy! Martha

YEA!!! I can't believe how big Jasmine is in the pictures! I am so happy she is home and you all can finally be together! What strength you all have to survive the NICU for 14 months. God is so good! Please keep us posted and give Jazzy a big hug from the Winslows!

That is so wonderful! It is getting warm out and I can only imagine that Jazzy will be sitting on the beach with mommy soon, if she already hasn't been there. I am so happy for you all and I know you are glad to finally be home with her as a family!

I MISS ALL OF YOU!!!! I think about all of you everyday. Just hasn't been the same without Jazzy in the corner of D-pod, but I am so excited about her being home. She is such a wonderful little weewad. Not so little anymore. She looks so great in her pictures. I hear she is eating great and that she might get her trach down sized. I am so proud of her and you Shannon. You are both doing great. Just wanted to tell you that I miss you all and hope to c you all soon. Tell little miss Jazzy that I miss her, Shannon and Granny too.
Love Jennifer Hartness
