It's 5:30 am on February 9th, 2006. I'm currently pumping because Brian and I will be heading into the city in an hour or so.....to get our daugther to bring her home!!!!!!
Yes, Kaitlyn is coming home to us today. She will have an NG feeding tube (nasal), but she is coming home.
Since July 26th 2005 when I had that fateful amnio, summer, fall, winter, the holidays have all past by, I've spent more than 3 months in bed, 3 weeks in the hospital, delievered my 2 beautiful daugthers 3 months early, held my first born daughter Corinne while she died in my arms, made funeral arrangements, I became very sick and could have died myself from e-coli sepsis, finally saw my other daughter Kaitlyn 4 days after she was born, finally held my daughter 6 weeks after she was born, packed my c-section incision for 2 months due to infection, saw Kaitlyn through at least 10 blood transfusions, 2 surgeries, among many other procedures, illnesses and infection, drove 4o mile round-trip to the hospital nearly every day for approx 130 days, pumped somewhere around 4,000 ounces of milk and now am taking home our nearly 7 pound daughter .
Miss Kaitlyn is coming home and we finally feel like parents. WE finally get to make the walk out of the hospital like proud new parents carrying our car set with our daughter in it. We have seen so many new parents walk out of the hospital and had so much sorrow that we weren't leaving and now it's finally our turn.
We are ecstatic!
Love Liz and Brian.
Of course I will continue to update Kaitlyn's progress here on aLizard.com
