I'm being released today
I've been here since last Monday. Ella is doing ok. She will be getting another transfusion today. It takes 2 hours to get 6ccs. The ultrasound of her brain came back clear.
They took her off the bili lights.
They are going to try to take her off the dopamine throughout the day, and if that works they will start feeding her breast milk tomorrow. My milk is just now coming in. I'm getting a few teaspoonfuls at a time right now.
We will be staying up here tonight, at a place like RMH.
I feel completely helpless right now.
I have an appt with my therapist tomorrow, but I'm not sure we'll be able to make it.
And there is a support group for parents to preemies in the area. The hospital social worker is hunting down times for the meetings for us.
It will be nice to sleep in a regular bed tonight. And I am sure dh agrees. He's been sleeping in a pull out chair this whole week.
