We picked out a name today: Lilah Brooke

We thought we were going to take her home today, but the pedi came in and told us the placenta and umbilical cord testing came back positive for infection. She's not showing any negative signs, thank goodness, but they still need to keep her to give her antibiotics. They said it usually takes 3-7 days. I'm really hoping for 3, so we can bring her home Monday

I don't really know how to feel right now. I just feel a little numb, I guess.. I didn't expect to go home without her.. But I miss my son, too. At least I have him to snuggle with when we go home tonight. And I'll be back to stay with her all day tomorrow so I can keep breastfeeding her.

Oh I am so sorry!

Your hospital won't let you room in?

Oh, I'm sorry I'm glad they were able to find that out though so that she can get the care she needs.

I'm so sorry. It's hard to leave them when you planned to bring them home with you. Hopefully the antibiotics do their thing quickly and little Lilah gets to go home by Monday.

Beautiful name btw.

I think you are too kind. Kind people give the people around them a hard time. You can't express yourself honestly, because you are worried about hurting other people's feelings, and that makes you miserable.~"Winter Sonata"

Oh, I hope you are able to manage the weekend without too much stress. Sounds like she's managing OK and hopefully, doesn't have any signs of infection herself and this is just precautionary. I hope she can go home on Monday! ((HUGS)) Name is beautiful

Thank you ladies. Unfortunately, we can't room here. But I can come up and stay with her at any time. They gave me attachments to their hospital pump to use whenever I'm here and a hand pump for home, too. So she can get breastmilk when I'm not here.

I'm going to pump one more time and go see her before we head home. It's getting late and we need to go pick DS up soon.

But my nurse said the night before she is discharged I do get to stay in a room with her overnight. So that will be nice.

Pumping is good. I hope it is just the three days then. I know how hard it is to leave them.

Thank you. I'm glad it's a normal way to feel.. I'm sorry about your little one, too. Poor thing. I'm only on day one and even that is pretty rough. I can't imagine I hope your baby gets to come home soon, too.

Yep, I did get some news today. Her discharge day won't be until Friday I wasn't expecting the full 7 days, but I knew it was a possibility. She's doing really well, though. That's just how long it will take to finish her antibiotic treatment.

The pedi said that Wednesday and Thursday night he would get me a room, though And she will be able to room in with me. I'm soo glad. I can't wait for that. So we will get to spend Christmas day and night with her <3

Monday and Tuesday will be the hardest, though. Because I won't be able to stay up here all day like I can thru the weekend - cause we have no one to watch our son those days. But it will be okay. He needs some mama time, too.
