Linking up with Twinfatuation Way Back When-esday. Thanks Cheryl for letting me play along!
Miss Priss came home on 4/22/08 after 68 long days in the NICU. You can read little more of her NICU story here. Molly pretty much was my trouble maker between the two. She gave me the most scares even up to the very last week before her release. The doctors first told me Luke and Molly would be going home together, but Molly decided differently. She wanted her Mommy to have one last scare! The very same day that we were told the good news the daytime nurse saw blood in Molly's poo. This called for immediate action. They took x-rays & blood to run tests. They even collected a sample of her poo to run cultures. Their main concern was NEC. Come to find out it was just an infection that could be treated with an antibiotic, regardless this granted sister another week in the NICU.
Of course I had to share a picture of me cuddling her at home like Luke's pic last week.
Awww...A Daddy snuggle with both her first night.
In her own bed for the first time!
This was taken the next morning after a night of tears from Mommy! I will never forget that first night with both! I even made Todd call the NICU that night. Molly's oxygen needs kept needing to be turned up. I was beside myself thinking they released her too early. Amanda talked to Todd and said a lot of babies do that when they leave the hospital until they become accustomed to their new surroundings. Sure enough...her oxygen started going back down the next day. I won't lie and say from that point on it was all roses because it wasn't. I call Molly Miss Priss for a reason. She was very high maintenance & still is! :) Very sensitive to everything.
My turn to double cuddle! I needed this bliss after the night before! Once again you can see that crazy look on my face.
Best Friends for life!!
Than the fun times began!
Yay, it's freedom week!
