Tomorrow?

We are possibly being discharged tomorrow. Every room on the floor right now is full and Bela's problems aren't as big as some others so we're being sent packing. (I took that as a very GOOD compliment when they told me that today.) We were going to stay a little longer to make sure she's doing okay eating and gaining, but they said we'll have to work those out at home. Darn. (that was sarcastic). I'm really ready to get home. I miss spending time with Tanner and Benson...this whole hopstial stuff is extremley draining in so many ways.
Bela's infection is completley gone and her incision is already healing up nicely. She seems to be happier and more content. She's been eating pretty good here so I hope that continues. We've started to give her a continuous NG feeding throughout the night and she's doing great keeping it down. She's given enough to keep her full through the night so I don't even have to get up! I have to say it's been quite a nice change. She sleeps for the most part all night long. So this time we'll be coming home with a couple new additions on her...her NG tube down her nose, and her broviac in her leg that we will be adminitering her antibiotic through. Hopefully both things will be gone in about 2-3 months. We're just sooo grateful that she is healing again so well and seems to be recovering from another surgery with no complications! We sure hope to not see this place again for another 4 months or so..

Yay for going home! I have been following your story for a few weeks now. I linked your blog from baby Gracie's blog. A friend of a friend gave me her link. Anyway, I just wanted to comment because I also noticed that your blog is on Dana and Ryan's blog. (I just found their blog a few days ago after they had Kate.) Dana is my cousin. Anyway, it is such a small world!
