Amelia was discharged from the hospital this afternoon! She was doing very well so the doctors felt comfortable letting her go home. We just have to make sure she drinks enough milk so she doesn't get dehydrated. She hasn't taken too much yet this evening but she was on fluids all day so she should be ok.
I sat in the backseat next to Amelia on the ride home so I could rub her head (head rubs are one of her most favorite things ever! She will even grab your hand and put it on her head if she feels the need for one) thinking that would keep her calm for the ride home. Unfortunately that plan backfired..........she cried the whole way home because she wanted me to pick her up and hold her. It was a long, heartbreaking ride home.
She is asleep now. We have to wake her up every 4 - 5 hours to give her pain meds so they won't wear off. It will be hard to wake her up but it will help keep her comfortable so it is worth it.
