Bad News

So today I went to the hospital to see Raegan and they are going to have to do surgery tomorrow. I haven't talked to the Nero Surgeons so I am not sure of all the details. I hope they call soon. I am wondering and getting anxious to know what is going to happen. So with this minor set back she wont get to come to the hospital that is closer to home.

I will have to figure out what I will do when she starts breastfeeding. I will be spending 12+ hours at the hospital since it is to far to come home and go back. Oh yeah and because there is so much traffic. There is a mom that had her daughter 12 days after Raegan. Her daughter was 12 weeks early. She has been very sweet and has since she lives only 10 minutes from the hospital she has offered me a place to take a nap or shower if I need it. There are so many nice family's going through what we are going through. It's nice to get support from them and to give them support.

I guess staying isn't going to be that bad. I really like the hospital staff. They have been great. I come to know the staff pretty well, and can trust that when I am not there they will take good care of Raegan. Some of the nurses that have taken care of Raegan come by and see how she is doing when they are not caring for her. It's nice to know that they care enough to come by and check on us.

So post can't end on a bad note. There is good news. Raegan did eat a full feeding today by bottle. She ate more than a full feeding. She is getting so big. I hope let we can bring her home in four and a half weeks.

I will keep everyone updated on how things go. I will bring the laptop with me to the hospital tomorrow.
