Day 27: Saturday? Oh My!

When I went up to feed Liviana last night the nurse immediately said, "Congratulations". I thought, what for. She said, "I hear she gets to go home Saturday". What? Saturday? That is so soon. Of course I am beyond thrilled to have her coming home but I feel so unprepared suddenly. I feel anxious about her being home without the monitors signaling me to a problem. What about the nurses, how will I do it without them? Is the house ready? Can I completely sanitize and steralize the whole place in time for her arrival? What if she gets sick, it could be devastating. So many thoughts race through my head.

The nurse added that I need to get 24 straight hours of feeding in first so I am hoping that 24 hours will begin on Friday morning and end Saturday morning.

I can't believe Livvy will be coming home just 4 weeks after her birth. It still amazes me and I still think she is just a miracle baby.

I have to get ready to head to the hospital. I'll post more later.....

YAY! I'm so excited to read this! Have the other kids been able to meet her yet? What is the visitation policy at your hospital?

It is very possible that Cadenne and Liviana will come home on the same day or in the same weekend! Wouldn't that be something? :D
