I can’t believe we have a 2 month old.
After Luke’s birth (which you can read about here), we had a few lovely hours together in our room.
Luke spent the next 48 hours of life in the Special Care Nursery at Hutzel. This nursery was a step down from the NICU, and while he had great care there, I still can’t talk about it without being mad. We knew there was nothing wrong with our little guy, but it seems that the resident that day was feeling very cautious and they whisked Luke away from us around 10am the morning of his birth. I was bawling. It’s hard to go against medical advice when it comes to your 5 pound baby, but if I had the day of his birth to live over, I would not have let them take him (they wanted to test for infection and hook him up to the monitors because he had one low blood sugar test- we believe it was a lab error).
Luckily our little guy seemed resilient to the pokes and beeping monitors. The only time he got upset was when other babies cried. He was awake and alert and just awesome those first few days.
Nana G came to visit from Chicago- she was awesome at cuddling her first grand baby.
