Natasha is home! Bruno is confused. He didn’t realize there was a little human in the car seat for quite a while. Since he realized he has been curious and, well, a little withdrawn. Wait till Katarina comes home as well 🙂
We spent last night in the hospital in a “parent room” to give us some idea of what we are in for:http://youtu.be/h0bVhc0Gb7s. While we were there we got the lab results back for both girls and their hematocrits were much improved. This was the last major milestone for Natasha and she was given one last shot of EPO and discharged late this afternoon. The best moment came for me when they disconnected her from the monitors and we got to truly hold JUST our girl for the first time. She seemed so much lighter without the long cords connecting the monitor to the probes and the sense of freedom of movement – we could now go anywhere! – was a much bigger relief than I expected. So of course there was only one place we wanted to take her:http://youtu.be/8NZQRfOGH50….
You might notice the quality of the video has improved – thanks to Anton, Vinaya, Steve and Linda for the early birthday present of a camcorder!
