PDA Closed...Again

Well, the PDA has been closed again.  This time with a staple.  It should stay closed this time.  She just had the surgery today after several delays but is now resting comfortably (drugged) and looks good.  We are looking forward to seeing the changes this brings about.  They should be sizeable.
She handled the move to the new hospital just fine.  I, on the other hand, did not.  I cried and cried.  T was not overjoyed at my reaction.  I didn't care.  I just cried anyway.  I also had a martini with dinner.  So there. 
She should be going "home" to the original hospital either tomorrow or Friday.  Fingers crossed it is tomorrow.  The Big Hospital Up the Hill is HUGE and LOUD and I want her out of here ASAP!!!!  The care is excellent and the technology is impressive but it is not "our NICU" and I want her back there where there are only 6 babies instead of 91 and there is one nurse to every one or two babies instead of one to four.  *sigh*
Things are good and should improve from here. :0)

Blue: I am a new follower and I am so happy to hear that Azure is well and that you and T are holding up in light of all of this. I have been holding my breath for an update and praying that all is well. I am a Michigander also and I believe I know which big hospital up on the hill. My thoughts are with all of you. Please keep us updated.

Good news for Azure but boo to T for not understanding that some things are just going to push the buttons. You're never going to know what they are until they happen so he should just roll. Take it easy sweetie.

That's great news she did so well in the surgery, Blue. You continue to amaze me with your strength through all of this.

I can't believe there are 91 babies in the NICU at the big hospital. That brought tears to my eyes.

Thinking of you all and hoping the recovery is going well. Here's to improved O2 sats and weaning off the vent!

I'm so glad that Azure came through okay. I've been worried about her all week as I been out of touch since the two F2 tornados came through our town on Sunday leaving us without power. As a former fellow NICU mom i understand TOTALLY why you cried and thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. Thats your BABY they are moving she is the most important thing in the world and darn it they better not harm one of the precious little hairs on her head! I remember right before Katie got ready to come home they but a yarn bow in her hair to take her first pictures (in which she gave the world the "bird") and she had a reaction to it. I almost shot them. Hang in there and cry all you want to. Sounds like Azure is every bit the fighter katie was and now Katie is a healthy happy 5 year old.

Go, Azure, go!

Would have sent this via e-mail but I can't seem to find an address. I have a small gift I'd like to send to welcome your girl. If you don't mind sharing Sensitive Personal Information with a stranger on the Internet, can you please e-mail me at julie@alittlepregnant.com?
