Default We are all home!!!

Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers. This has truely been the most emotionally and physically draining week of my life. Morgan was discharged today and she is feeding much better. I swear I have enough pumped milk to feed a small village. I'm actually at the point now where I'm just having to dump it since I have so much.
Did not have much luck with her latching yesterday as her mouth is pretty small and we will just keep on working on it. The last CT scan still showed the small areas where there were bleeds on the left side of her brain, but the occupational therapist came and she did great. She also had an eye exam which showed no bleeding behind her eyes. All in all she is healthy and doing well and just need to make sure she is always full. LOL So we go back in one month to meet with the neuro doc to have another scan or ultasound done and then follow-up from there. The crazy thing is that the jaundice is what brought us to the hospital and then that's when they noticed the other soft spot on the back of her head.

And to make matters more stressful, I began hemorraging Monday and passed a lot of HUGE clots. Scared the s**t out of me. Luckily I was already at the hospital since I was staying in Morgan's room. I'm really trying to take it easy now, but its so hard trying to. Micah seems to be handleing all this well and she's just happy to have me back home. I just feel so guilty about not being there for her and also her having just gone back to school too. Hope everyone continues to do well.

So glad to hear that you are all home and doing well. Don't dump that milk girl! You worked hard for it! Freeze it- you can always use it later! Enjoy your precious baby now that you are at home!
