When we first got to the NICU, we talked to various parents who had been there for several days, several weeks, and several months. I remember being in total awe of the parents who had been there for months and were still hanging on. It seemed like such a looooooong time – like something impossible. These days, we meet parents in Peds or newcomers to the PICU and they ask us how long we’ve been here… and we tell them and watch that same shock spread across their faces. That’s us now.
On a lighter note, my surgeon said I could try solid foods today (slowly and nothing too heavy), so Mandy and I took the opportunity to have a dinner-date night. We were back in the PICU before 8:30PM! Short date, but still nice.
Leah wore the most ridiculously cute outfit today. It killed me with cute. Have some pictures.
