So tomorrow is it! We are finally getting to bring our babies home after 11 long weeks in the NICU.
Unfortunately Madeline decided she just couldn't quite go without bringing a little piece of the NICU with her. So we will be bring her home on a small amount of oxygen. If you remember my last post where the doctors were debating to put her back on it or not, it was decided that although she is able to maintain her oxygen levels most of the time without being on oxygen, when something small happens and her body gets the slightest bit stressed she just doesn't seem to have that extra little strength to overcome it without her oxygen dropping. So it was decided to put her back on a small amount of oxygen in order for her to be able to come home with her brother. They told us they don't expect her to have to stay on the oxygen for more than two or three weeks. The good news is though, with oxygen comes monitors and that means a little peace of mind for Jason and I.
So wish us luck! We are beyond excited and relieved to start this next chapter of our lives as a family of 4 all under one roof.
