We're Free

At around 9am on Tuesday the 23rd, our doctors cleared us both to be discharged from the hospital. I was extremely tired of being at the hospital, reporting to the nurses every time the baby ate, had a wet or dirty diaper, having my blood pressure checked all the time, nurses telling me I need to supplement with formula, etc... just being there was stressful and exhausting.

It took the hospital 3.25 hours to get there act together and discharge us... So, around noon I was in my wheel chair holding the car seat with the baby already in it being wheeled out of the hospital with Erich in tow. Putting the car seat into the car was quite an experience. Me being the take control kind of person I am, grabbed the car seat and proceeded to lean into the car and place it on the base at which point I about doubled over in pain. Who knew leaning over holding a 15lb package out at arms reach would use my abs?!? Ouch! Note to self... don't do that again. At 12:15pm we were in the car driving away! Yipee!!! Erich is taking 2weeks off to help me around the house with the baby and drive me around. Doctors orders... no driving or doing much of anything stressful for the next 2 weeks at least.

Ethan has his first ped appointment tomorrow with Dr. Eggen. We will see how that goes.
