Sammy: Day Three

Day 3 had its goods and bads.

She got cuter.

But because she is still being monitored, we checked out of the hospital without her.

She's eating a ton now. If she eats steady for 24 hours, we can take her home. Hopefully that will be tomorrow afternoon.

We never imagined that we would have to leave the hospital without her. It was rough.

But we got to go home and hang out with this cooky kid, so that cheered us up.

After we got unpacked and ate a fantastic dinner some good friends dropped off, we took Oliver to meet his seester for the first time. But he could only see her through a pane of glass. The Hospital would normally let siblings in the nursery, but he's got a bit of a cough. So this was as close as he could get.

Did I mention she's tiny?

Last night she weighed 6 lbs. 7 oz. Hopefully she will be back up by the time we take her home tomorrow.
