Ben was re-admitted to the hospital, but coming home soon. — The Bump

Ben was re-admitted to the hospital, but coming home soon.

To make a long story short, we had a scary night last night with our newest arrival, Ben.  He had awful bloody and mucously stools last night that got me fearing the worst (Zoey had NEC).  We went to the ER at our Children's Hospital, and he got admitted for testing and further observation.  In the end, he was diagnosed with Allergic Colitis and I have to eliminate dairy and soy from my diet since I plan to EP for him.  What a terrible rollercoaster with way too many reminders of our NICU time.  We were on the one of the units that Zoey was on, some of the nurses were the same, I got the same food trays, etc.  I am a mess.  And, today is my birthday.  I'm done feeling sorry for myself.  Ben is healthy and coming home, so that is the best gift of all.
