Default todays update

I knew this was going to be a roller coaster ride but it's so hard. I left the hospital at 5:00 last night and then Eric and I went back to the hospital last night at's a half hour away and the weather was snowing and horrible but I really wanted to go back.

anyway..while we were there little Eric's oxygen went way down while we were just holding him and while he was eating ( yesterday was the first day) he kept stopping that did not go well.

they put the feeding tube back in and we'll see how it goes today. Eric went to work until 12pm today and when we gets home we are going to head there for a few hours...Grace has practice tonight so I want to be home so we can give her dinner and Eric can take her to practice.

I am soo tired. I wanted to relax this morning but I just can't. I took a shower but then felt the need to do things ...

ok..i'm done rambling. It's just that yesterday was such a hard day leaving the hospital without the baby and everytime I pick up the phone to call the NICU to check in I start to cry

It is definitely a roller coaster ride, one you will never forget. The reward is great so hang in there. When you feel the need to cry do so. I had serious post partum depression after Andre, he didnít come home for 3 months. Do what you have too and donít feel bad about it. I wish I could give ya a big hug, I know itís hard. Thinking of you, trust me Eric will get the eating down, timing is everything.

I donít want to sound like I know it all because I donít but I hope you understand I feel your pain and pray for comfort during this time. If you ever need to talk I am definitely here for you.
