Alijah Coming Home!
So…after 9 weeks of being in the hospital, Alijah will probably be coming home at the end of this week (Week 10)! It is surreal. He has been here in this world for 2 and a half months, and has never been home. They ran some tests on him today to determine why his billieruben level is rising instead of falling like it should. His liver may still be too immature, or he may have a gallbladder problem. They expect positive results, which wont change his coming home schedule.
So now he is pretty much set. He will be coming home with an oxygen tank for when he is here, a portable oxygen tank for when we are out, and some monitors for his oxygen, heart rate, and breathing rate. It is almost going to be like he is still in the hospital, but with us taking care of him instead of nurses.
Now…bringing home a baby is nerve racking enough - think about taking home a baby with all this hardware! Nonetheless, I am very excited. No more driving to the hospital (which is a 45 min trip), no more missing him (except for when I am at work).
