1st nite at home

So after 3 great days at Mount Sinai Hospital they let, Sophie, Angie and I to go home. We were discharged, it took basically all day and at one point, they made us sign a form that said that we know how to take care of an infant and we both just laughed. We got her in her carseat and she just went to sleep and slept the whole way home. That was good, I had a vision of her screaming the whole way home while we sit in the evening traffic. But she was just great. We introduced her to her new home and her room. Angie was totally exhausted so I tried to do everything except the baby feeding. Overall it was our best nite yet and any problems were mostly our faults and not anything Sophie was doing. We were able to get her on a routine and the 3 of us actually all slept at the same time.

Angie is doing ok as well, still pretty beat-up, but we got her pain meds so I am sure she will be better in no time at all. The section is a serious procedure and I don't think women that have one get enough credit for what they go through. So that's about it for now, I will get the pictures organized, and post some more pics of my beautifull daughter. She makes me smile even when I am sitting at the ICU watching the ventilator breathe for Natalia (all stable).

Welcome Home! So glad to hear that things are going well and that the 3 of you got some sleep! Sleep makes everything go better when you have a newborn.

I hope Angie recovers quickly and Natalia gets her lungs and you can all settle into a calm, peaceful existence.

Bet it feels good to be home. Sophie will teach you guys all about her and let you know exactly what she needs. It gets a lot easier as time goes on.

Thanks for the update on Nat. I am so glad to hear that she's stable and fighting hard.
