Lindy is coming home TOMORROW!!!! Wednesday, December 19th! The best Christmas present we could have ever asked for!
After trying to ship her out of Duke, she has ended up staying there. Things really started picking up towards the end of last week. They made the decision about oxygen on Thursday and they came to Drew on Friday with home health companies. She has continued to eat like a champ all weekend long.
They moved her eye exam to today (Tuesday) and they said if she got a good report from the ophthalmologist that she could be discharged on Wednesday! Yesterday was spent trying to find home health companies and today was spent waiting for the eye exam. The eye doctor said she was looking good and stable and there has been no change since last week. They cleared her so that she can come home!!
Drew is in Durham today and he is 'rooming in' with Lindy tonight. They have rooms where parents can stay with their babies before they go home. We figured that since she is on oxygen that it would be good for someone to have a little experience with her before she got home. I really hope the night goes well for them. We've never been with her in the middle of the night!
Tomorrow is going to be an exciting day. Drew's dad, Bob, and his wife, Suzette, are coming up tomorrow morning. Suzette is going to keep Will all day and Bob will be taking me to Durham to meet Drew and Lindy. I want to be there with her when we leave the hospital!! Plus I don't think Drew would be comfortable driving two hours with her in the backseat by herself, on oxygen.
I can't imagine what it is going to be like with two babies, one being on oxygen. I'm pretty nervous actually! I really can't imagine what it will be like on Thursday morning when no one has to get up and go the hospital. One of us has been at the hospital everyday (except for 2 days) since July 18th!
As I was writing this post the company just delivered the oxygen tank. It's not as big as I thought it would be. It comes with 50 foot of tubing so you can put the tank out of the way and still take her all around the house. It doesn't seem too complicated.
So it looks like we are all ready for Miss Lindy. Well except I started putting together her bouncy seat and it seems kind of rickety. Will and I will have to spend some time tonight trying to get it together right.
I can't wait to see the babies together tomorrow! I can't wait to hold my babies at the same time. It will be the first time I have ever held them at the same time. We never got to in the hospitals.
So much excitement for tomorrow! Lots of big changes!!!!! Next time I post we'll have our whole family together at home!!!
