colt came home!

After being born at 34 weeks, 1 day and 3 lbs, my son is finally home and out of the nicu! The last 48 days flew by, but seemed to stand still at the same time. He is 5lbs 3 ozs! we are adjusting well, and my dog is already protective of him. we have so many ridiculously early drs appts, that is whats making me nervous. im just so glad to have him home with me. leaving the nicu was emotional. I had 2 nurses I was really close with. thankfully I got email addresses so I can keep in touch & send pictures to them.
My little pumpkin was born at 34weeks, weighing 3lbs, due to severe IUGR & Unexplained Placental Insufficiency. He spent 49 days in the NICU. Lilypie Premature Baby tickers imageimageimage image image image

    Congratulations on Colt's homecoming!! I know EXACTLY what you mean as far as the time both flying by and standing still.  It's as if your sense of time while in the NICU transcends the space/time continuum!

    My daughter has 3 specialists, plus her pedi and EI, so I understand about the appointments.  Don't worry--after the first couple of ones, you'll get a system down. GL!
