We are free at last! Whew. It's strange to be here and have all the family in one house. Me, Jimmy, Brynlee, Robbie, Mitzie. We are all here!
Brynlee had a hearing test today, and she passed! Such a relief. We still need to pass the neurological exam to be out of the woods, but atleast we are 1/2 way there.
Bringing Brynlee home was like bringing a newborn home all over again. Except this newborn was a lot more alert and weighs a lot more...11 lbs 2 oz!! Good greif. Tank Baby indeed. I'm not sure how far back babies can remember, but I don't think it's 2 weeks. So it was like Brynlee was seeing the outside world all over again. She was in awe!
They made me take a wheelchair all the way down from my room to my car too. So stupid! I didn't just give birth, and my baby is 2 months old! We are capable of walking down to the car. But it's their policy. So they are wheeling me along and everyone we pass is telling me "congratulations" and stuff. Thanks I guess? I look at my seemingly giant child ( she is getting close to double her birth weight now) and think if I had to give birth to a baby this big I would have died. Literally. Bless those people who push out those 10 and 11 lb babies!
Being the even more paranoid mom that I am, I decided not to get Brynlee her vaccines right away. I just didn't feel right about it. So we re scheduled those for a few weeks from now, once her little body has had some time to recoup.
Funny that a little while ago I couldn't stand being in my house. All it took was a 2 week hospital stay to get me saying "There is no place like home!"
Waiting for James to arrive!
