Baby D

Remember Baby D?

Well, L, Smiley and I went to Katrina town yesterday to go see Princess and go shop for a crib and a few more baby items for Princess. We also had a nice dinner out and Smiley did not cry too much.

Like I said, since we were already in Katrina town visiting princess(too bad not in the same hospital), we stopped by to visit baby D. It took a little while for the nurses to look up and see that we were still on the visiting list, but they let us see him(one at a time since Smiley couldn't go in the NICU). I told the nurses we were JUST VISITING and to tell his regular nurse we stopped by JUST TO VISIT.

Me: Wow! He got big!

Nurse: Want to hold him?

Me: YES!

Nurse: I'll just let you cuddle him a little while and check on my other patient, call if you need me.

Me: Ok.

I loved on baby D for about 10-15 minutes, careful not to blister his skin, then let the nurse put him to bed, took a couple new pics for his caseworker, and kissed him goodbye.

I wish Princess were at that hospital too. The nurses are extra nice there and didn't make me feel like a bother, although I had no good reason to be there. They seemed to appreciate me giving baby D some snuggling for a little while.

Princess' nurse yesterday didn't seem as optimistic about the extubation tomorrow. She said they do it in the OR when they don't believe it would be successful. I asked what would happen next if it didn't work. She said something about the arota? blocking part of the lungs? You don't understand? Neither do I. I didn't get a good explanation except possibly another surgery? I asked if the doctor could call, but I doubt he will. I was not too happy when I left. I'm gonna have L call the caseworker and see if she can get some decent information. Until then, please pray the extubation is successful because this would really be a turning point in her recovery.

By the way, ya'll know where I'm talking about when I say Katrina town? Just trying to keep some confidentialilty.

    I'm glad you got to stop by to say Baby D. Too bad you're not as happy with Priness' care as his.

    So glad you got to see Baby D.
    I am praying Princess gets to come home to you soon!
    I KNOW she will do so much better once you can hold her and love on her.
    Hang in there!

    Have you put up your tree yet? I bet Smiley will be all smiles! :)

    Any ideas on how I can help find baby D a home?

    We need to get a tree, but going back and forth tow the hospital, 3 hr round trip, with Smiley in tow, cranky from teething. Haven't had time to look for a tree yet. Maybe during the week.
