Grayden had another great night last night. He did not have any episodes of desaturation with his oxygen levels; however I guess this morning he had one brief episode at 6am. So this morning, when the doctors did their rounds, the nurse asked when we could expect to be discharged, and their response was, "probably no sooner than Monday." I was not there for the rounds because I was upstairs having my incision checked out, so I was not able to ask them more questions as to why we have to be here at least another 4 days. I am beyond frustrated and am constantly on the verge of tears. I keep trying to tell myself that it isn't that big of deal, but I just want to go home so badly. As my mom said though, it is probably best that we wait so that when we go home we don't have to worry as much. So anyways, here we sit waiting to go home, waiting to bring our little guy home to meet his big brother.
On a more positive note, Grayden continues to eat really well. He is breastfeeding like a champion! Also, they lowered his daily minimum back down to a more reasonable amount. I knew it seemed like too much when they had raised it up on the surgical unit.
