DAY 24: GOING HOME!!!!!!
FINALLY!!! It is 4:00PM, and Deedee is sleeping in her own crib, Amen! She was discharged today, as everything seems ok. So far, her desats are fixed mainly with positioning and chest-pt, so that is something to watch. She is still recuperating, so she needs time. We foresee endless sleepless nights ahead of us... But at least it is not at the hospital. That is a big nuisance (distance from home) and gets expensive (food and transportation).
We are happy that we are home, at last! Keep praying for Deedee, so she heals completely. She is very frail, and right now that is exponential until she gets her strength back. That will take a while, we know it. Hopefully, this will be the last hospital visit for this season (fingers crossed).
Thanks to everyone that has been emailing, calling and leaving messages. Your support and prayers have been fueling us so we keep going like the Energizer bunny. And even if we are tired and very sleepy, we keep on having strength to go on. God keeps on being good to us, helping baby and giving us true hope.
So... baby is resting, we are home... And now back to the "normal" schedule... If there is such a thing. So far the biggest problem is her fast desats. The pulse-ox keeps beeping and its driving us insane... And it can't be ignored because of obvious reasons. Keep us in your prayers so baby stabilizes soon.
