A longer post will come in the next day or so, but just wanted to quickly report that Trish and Rudy were discharged late this morning. Rudy was cranky up until the end; but that changed the moment he got into his car seat. Suddenly he was all smiles as he looked out the window and made his escape. It’s OK with us if he hates the hospital–home is much better! At the same time, we’re so grateful for the UCLA team, the careful attention they pay
to Rudy and the encouraging friends they are to us [not to mention the hard-to-find hospital loot they send us off with in good supply ;-)].
Trish will probably wait out the LA traffic for a bit, but we can’t wait to see them. It was fun to hear Rudy squawking it up in the background when she called me from the car! I guess the ability to vocalize more is readily evident!
