WOW! Brynn is finally home. After a long day of paperwork and last-minute reviews of Brynn's care procedures, we made it out of the hospital. I won't have time to write much because I'm working really hard to get some semblance of a system down but I just wanted to share the good news.
She did come home with an NG tube, oxygen tanks, and a REALLY loud monitor (that alarms only if her breathing or heart stops). So along with the pumping, the bottle feeding, the NG tube, and being attached to both a 25-ft oxygen chord and a monitor at all times, each feeding is going to be quite the process! Hopefully I'll figure out some shortcuts or realistic multitasking that can reduce all my steps down to a manageable routine. Whew! After all this, a normal baby is going to be a breeze!
When I get the chance, I'll post some photos. If I'm really ambitious, perhaps an edited video.
I must say, before I end, a big thank you to everyone who reads this blog. It's funny because many, many times it was tempting to get discouraged and throw myself a pity party--but I had the accountability of the blog, knowing people were counting on me to write something uplifting. Just thinking of what to write has often been the very thing to motivate me to BE happier. Trying to stay positive for the sake of you, my readers, has made this cross much easier to bear.
So thanks. Thanks for your comments, your questions, your concern, and most of all for your prayers. I love you all!
