Coming Home?!


WHAT?? That's what Gary and I said! So we are headed to the hospital to spend all day and night there. Lydia is coming home on oxygen and an apnea monitor so we have to learn how to use them. We also took our infant CPR class yesterday so now I have been refreshed in the whole, 'head tilt chin lift, check for breathing, 2 breaths 30 compressions' ...got it?!

If all goes well, she will be discharged tomorrow. We're excited, a little scared of all the fandangled stuff she's coming home on, and more excited. She weighed 4lbs 3oz last night and is eating anywhere from 1oz to 2oz at a time.

Give us a few days to get settled and we'll be in touch when we've caught our breath again...which might not be for a few more years so who the hell knows when you'll hear from us next haha...

Will try to keep the blog updated as I'll be house-bound for a while ;)
