Yey! We're Finally Home!


After a week in the hospital for me and 5 extra days in the hospital for Cicily we were finally able to leave and come home yesterday afternoon! My labor went so long that I got an infection and a really high fever a couple of hours before baby came out, so when baby came out she to had the fever and infection and had to be on antibiotics as well and monitored for what looked like a week! However she is such a strong little girl that she pulled through the infection a little sooner and we got to go home Monday of this week instead of Wednesday! We are so happy to be home and love not being poked and prodded at anymore!


She had a rough start and was immediately taken to the special care nursery which is a level 2 NICU, ( not as serious as a level 1 NICU)! There she was hooked up to all sorts of monitors, and IV's (yuck, hard to see for a new mommy and daddy!)




She had her own room and her very own nurse 24/7 and was not allowed to leave the nursery, which meant we couldn't be with her all of the time, hated that, so did she!

Visitors were only allowed 2 at a time plus mom or dad in her room and had to scrub in to come into the nursery. Depending on how she was doing couldn't be held sometimes! Sorry Aunty Linds and Uncle Colb!!!

This was a happier day when dad was holding her! Too cute!!!


Finally on Sunday night she was well enough to go into the Well Baby nursery which meant I could now bring her into my room almost whenever I wanted! This was our "happy to have little baby with us", family pic, in my hospital room!


Then Monday afternoon we said "see ya later suckers!" and we went home! Yeah!!!!!


Now we are home and get to see cute baby faces like this all day!!!!! (even if our hands are still all bruised from all of the IV's (mean nurses!!!!)



Happy to be home!

Sorry you and your little one had to go through all that. I hated the hospital and could wait to leave myself, so I really empathize. She is absolutely darling though! I LOVE all her hair!

Hi Sarah. I don't know if you remember me from High School or not, BreeAnn McDermott. I am really good friends with Danie. Your litle girl is adorable! I had a 21 hour labor, so I feel your pain! I am sorry you both got an infection, But I am glad she is doing well. Babies are the best! My little boy will be 8 months on the 19th of this month.The time goes by so fast!

Sarah- what a cute little kid you have. She looks just like you. What a doll!

Jesse, Christa and Marshall said...

Kind of a rough start. I'm glad everyone is doing okay and that you're finally home. She's a doll. If she's even half as sweet as you that would be more than enough. Welcome to Motherhood!

Reid and Christine Family said...
