((((hugs))))

I hope you'll get Liam home soon, and that your nasty side effects will ease. I don't know what it feels like to come home empty-handed, so I can only imagine. :( Try to take comfort over the fact that Liam is doing well, even though he's in a hospital.

Best,

Karoliina

Thanks for the kind messages everyone! I love the support this site brings and so glad I found it!
Just a quick update - I was discharged yesterday and finally got to hold him before I checked out. I was SO happy. I saw an internist (sp?) before they let me go home and they changed my medication since my BP was rising again (even though it was dropping the day after).

Anyway, I thought that it would be easier to come home this time around since we've been through this before (and much worse the first time around), but, man, it doesn't get that much, easier, does it? Coming home empty handed, even with a pretty healthy baby in the NICU is no picnic. It was still very surreal. I'm currently on Labatelol and Aldomet to control my BP and so far it seems to be working. Although - it makes me irritable - (Like everyone seems to be speaking so loud, even when they're not) - I hope that side effect goes away!

Oh, goodness, if he doesn't incite a case of baby fever, I don't know what could! I can almost smell his cute little head! Beautiful!

I'm really so glad he's doing well (much better than Lucas, my first) the NICU nurse said that for him, it's just all about watching im grow.
