We Get to Go Home!

Yesterday we fed Claire every 2 1/2 hours and fortified her milk with formula. This seems to have done the trick because she had gained when they weighed her last night, so the doctor said we can go home today! It will be a few more hours because we have a ton of stuff to do before we can be discharged, but hopefully by this afternoon we will be out of here :-)

James and I didn't get any sleep last night because Claire was REALLY fussy, probably due to all the food we packed into her and the new formula upsetting her tummy. We were both SO tired this morning, until the doctor came in and told us we can leave. That gave us renewed energy, and we ran around packing up everything. We picked out Claire's going-home outfit and I'm going to gussy her up after they remove the PICC line from her head and I can wash her hair. Her car seat is installed and I've got the camera primed to take lots of pictures of her homecoming.

I wanted to add, that we had to do the supplement for about a month once Caden came home and then we were able to slowly stop doing that. So supplementing her milk is so bad, you will get to nurse her again. Hang in there. If you need anything let me know!! HUGS!!
