We are home! (2 out of 3 of us at least)
Like Dorothy said....There's no place like home. Although it was hard leaving the hospital without our little girl, I know Pam is somewhat relieved to be back here and will be able to sleep in her own bed for the first time in over 3 weeks. Had a car full of stuff to bring back - its amazing how much "stuff" you collect in that amount of time.
We did check in on Riley before leaving and she's doing real well today. They had removed 2 of the jaundice lights, so only one of those left on her now. The swelling in her right arm is almost completely gone, and her jaw is looking better too. She has been very active lately and is quickly fitting into her new nickname pretty well - "Rascal" (since her initials are RAS).
Pam was able to help change her diaper, check her temperature, etc...
We got a little "hand-hugging" in as well...
We are hoping to go back tonight at some point, but might have to wait until tomorrow. Pam needs to rest a bit, and there's lots of things we need to get done now that we are out of the hospital.
