On November 27, when Nick was 2 weeks old, we were discharged from the hospital and able to go home!
Nick couldn't be on his back for more than an hour for the ride home. We had a little foam pad in his car seat to keep pressure off his back. We had home care coming for the cathing and dressing changes. We were cathing and he had an extensive dressing and antibiotics.
Nick's back incision had gotten infected, but was reacting well, and only a small area was giving us problems. But we were still good to go.
And ready to show Katheryn her baby brother, and Nickolas his big sister!!!
(We had decided all along that we would keep Katheryn away from the hospital so she wouldn't be scared or upset, and there would be the least amount of impact on her schedule.)
