This morning I was discharged from the hospital and what I thought would be a night without my daughter turned into a possible 10-14 days depending on the results of a blood culture test. Coming home without her has been hard and I cried for an hour after I found out I missed her first feeding. I know she is a preemie and is receiving the best care possible right now where she is but it breaks my heart seeing her tiny body hooked up to so many IVs. I'm trying to take this time to do everything I didn't do yet since she was early like wash her clothes, buy a breast pump, and handle paper work with HR at work. I am also trying to heal and be in better shape for when she comes home but I can't help but be bummed out and depressed that she is not here with us. Any other moms been through this? How did you cope and what did you do to help time go by? Trying to be strong but it's been a hard day. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.
