Discharge me!

Adam entered the NICU under Dr. Makwon's care for the first 29 days of his life and received a green light for discharge from him today as the weekend rotational doctor. 60 days has been long enough. If we had been able to get a home monitor from Apria, he would have come home today. Apparently they only do emergency situations on a Sunday so we will call first thing in the morning. In the meantime, we are keeping up on the schedule to be at the hospital for every feeding. The last thing we need now is to let down. If he would have too many times reverting back to less than the minimum range, the doctors would consider putting his feeding tube back in. And since we will be caring for him at home and not the nursing staff, we'll ride it out to see it through to the end. Kudos to Grandma Marilynn for coming down on short notice to help feeding Sara while we napped. Without her, it would not have been possible to keep up the crazy schedule that I think made all the difference in getting our kids reunited.
