Another update

The baby has something called c-reactive protein showing up in her blood test. This can indicate infection or inflamation. They’ve taken blood to run a culture, which will take three days before they know what’s going on, so we’ll be here until then. I technically get discharged tomorrow, but for $35 a night, can stay here with her, as long as they have a room.

I’m really hoping that everything is fine by Friday because I desperately want to go home. My kids are with my mother and while O is fine with it, The Boo is not a happy little girl. She won’t give me a hug, she won’t sit with me and she’s exhausted becase my mother doesn’t seem to remember that toddlers need their sleep. I just want to get home and get her back into her routine. I miss my other kids so much that it hurts.

Here’s a few pictures. We’re having trouble uploading from the camera to this laptop, so we’ll have more later, once we get home.

    Oh, she is SO sweet. I’m sorry she’s still in the hospital. Hopefully all will be well soon and she’ll be home.I love that last pic — you’ve perfectly captured the fierce little look newborns have when they nurse.
