Hip hooray! So happy for you! I'm sorry you ended up in surgery, but that's very common when you're on mag. Try to walk a little every day (like to the nicu of course!). That really helped with my c-section recovery. Sounds like you'll all be home in no time. Congratulations!!

Thanks guys! It has been such a journey, omg! My little guy is so unbelievable, he's so worth it! He's doing well. He only has to maintain his body temperature and consistently drink my milk to get off the IV. I anticipate him home by this weekend or early next week. I'm doing great. My blood pressure is elevated, not too bad. Thanks for all the well wishes and support!

Hey all!!

So, praise God, we're home!! I'm so elated... Just complete. Ya know? Bed time is almost something I don't like, I can't sit and stare at my lil guy. :( Lol. I rejoice in knowing I will wake up and spend all day over, and over, and over with him. Baby is doing awesome. He was released Sunday, inly staying 7 days. It was sooooo hard leaving him Thursday night. Thank God he only had to stay three extra days. Our first night was interesting. My husband struggled with his two shifts, 2 and 5 am. I did great all day! Last night was much better. Husband got the hang of things. Anyway, we're adjusting quite well. Going to bed but wanted to thank you guys, again for all the support!
