Saturday Sept. 26th
Well the baby and I are getting discharged from the hospital today. We are not going very far though. I got to stay here 4 days from the section, and have used the last 2 days basically just for room and board. The nurses here have been great, and I feel like the whole hosiptal knows our story. They have let me take the baby to the nursery when she is sleeping, so I can walk down to see Brooke. Glad she is sleeping alot. Oh and I realized I might have not posted the name we decided on. Paige Addison Lerner. Brooke will be soooo excited to see her sister, although it will be awhile. I am going to print off a picture and hang it on the end of Brookes bed so when she wakes up, she will be able to see a picture of mommy, daddy, and baby. Brooke has been so into babies lately. She couldn't wait to see the new baby, and feed it, and give her lots of hugs and kisses.
Brookes move up to the 5th floor went well. She is in a nice large private room, painted the color yellow. It is very similar to the color yellow we just painted her new room at home. We are hoping today, she will be moving around alittle more. Late last night, when the nurses were repositioning her, she moved her arms up, and bent her legs. You could also tell her eyes were moving around alot when we talked to her. This was very encouraging to see. She still has a one on one nurse taking care of her too. Her feet are getting stiff from laying there so long. She is getting PT to help this and OT on the way.
I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that has been praying for Brooke, and thinking of her. We have heard so many people we don't even know are following Brookes story and are praying for her even. We are very touched by this, and appricate it greatly.
