We stopped by the NICU before being discharged at 8:30pm. We both felt a little sorrow leaving and saying "good bye". I guess we took it for granted being just down the hall from him...he just felt "close by". So it was an odd feeling leaving the hospital. As I pulled the car up to pick up Stacie, I saw another discharged new mom in a wheel chair, but she was holding her baby. I know the hospital isn't a hotel and we can't stay forever, but it's difficult to know your leaving your son behind, you walk into your quiet home, then you pass by Jonah's bedroom and the crib is empty. We are just taking comfort that he is with a team that can take better care of him than we can. And we can celebrate the magnificant labor & delivery and his good health so far. One other good thing about being home is we can finally transfer our pictures!!
