First, we saw the pediatrician and baby is A-OK and was released from the hospital. Then, I had my staples removed (pictures below, avoid if you are squeemish) and the steribandaidthingys put on and then, I got released! We packed up and got out of Dodge! Went to Walgreen's and got my RXs and a quick lunch (ala Wendy's) and then came home. As soon as we got here, we had so much bustling to do to get the room prepared! We decided, on the way home, that we needed the Playpen in the bedroom as I can't bend over yet to get Tenz out of the cradle. So we had to get that put together and he was wet so we were all bustling in different directions trying to get everything we needed ready. Then he ate and had a huge poopy blow out! All the way up his little monkey back! Oy!!! It was nice when he slept, and I was able to get into bed easily and slept for a while too. Mom and I put in Northern Exposure Disc 1 and just had a marathon as we were resting. When he woke up, we did the whole thing again. It is easier at home but it is also harder. The hospital has everything and all their gear down to a science and so everything you have is exactly perfect for what you need it for and here at home, things are different. We have too many clothes to choose from, we have too many different sizes of diapers and blankets, our bassinett thing doesn't roll, and we have 2 stories. It is still nice to be home, but it would also be nice to have exactly perfect items and not so much excess. Our bedroom is definately different in just a few hours... baby gear is strewn from here to there and all of our stuff is shoved off to the side. Pretty funny.
I feel like my milk will be coming in in the morning. My boobs have really gotten bigger and plumper. Plus they are veiny. That will be devastating for my poor baby who loves being able to eat the Similac bottle instead of working hard for his food by sucking it from my breast.
I then proceeded to check all 100 million emails from school since I had to cancel class Monday and Wednesday due to being in the hospital last week. Students will never change! I was very clear and stated in emails, syllabi, and in class several times that IF we cancelled the 20th, your final revisions are still due and will not be accepted late so email them. Send the Word Doc, scan them, whatever, but "we didn't have class" is not an answer. So what was in my in box? Questions...what am I supposed to do with my rewrites when I didn't have class? You are in college! Think for yourself!!!
