Thank you for all the kind words, I am going to respond back as soon as I can. Things have been quite crazy here. But I want all of you to know how much I appreciate you in my life. All of your comments have made me smile. They were much needed. 🙂
Being Discharged Without Our Twins
I have been meaning to write all day, but it has not been easy. We were discharged today and the girls are still there. To say the least it was a difficult day and I don’t see it getting any easier until they are coming home with us. I don’t know how I am supposed to function with a part of me missing. I know they are where the should be, but honestly that doesn’t really make it any easier to not be with our two girls every moment. I want all six of us to be together all the time.
Of course, as we were saying good-bye I was crying and the nurse and my hubby were amazing. Our wonderful nurse said remember this you are leaving two healthy girls here. They only need to be under the warmer and learn how to take all the feedings from breast or bottle. Both girls are on a feeding tube right now, but have been taking the breast and the bottle well. So we are hoping they won’t need feeding tubes for long.
I will say the only thing that made this situation any better was being with our two old girls at home. We haven’t been home with them since Tuesday evening. We left for the hospital at 4 in the morning (still working on my birth story), so they woke up without us. My parents were here and they love them, but no one can replace Mommy and Daddy. They were so happy to see us today when we got home this evening and I was equally as excited.
I know everything will be okay in the end, but this is one of the most difficult things we have ever had to go through.
We have decided to name our girls:
I will explain what made us choose these names sometime soon. I am going to do a lot of blogging from the hospital between feedings. So I will have some time to fill you on all the details of these past few days. It has been quite the whirlwind.
More pictures to come!!!
