Twilight Zone-ish

We're at the hospital still.... 
This is starting to feel like ground hog day and a little like the twighlight zone. I'm more than ready to take this little baby home! His tiny tummy is so delicate now so we just need to see how his introduction back to food goes in the next day or two. THEN-- we can go home! I was about to have John bring us some house plants, a couple posters and some candles to homey up our new hospital apartment.  I have to say tho, we are lucky to be at a very wonderful, nice, new, clean hospital-- so that's a plus!

I'm confident I'll be able to post that we've made it home very soon!! Mason is a strong little trooper. And he even had his very first smile the other day... (tear). 


John and Adrian were visiting the other night and Mason stared intensely at John for what seemed like forever. Maybe he misses that guy :)

I've learned so much while staying here. 

1- always speak up when I see something I don't like or something I think is wrong 
2-  ask lot's of questions, even if I think they might be redundant or even silly 
3- doctors and nurses aren't always right 
4- starting a medical journal is very important for note taking
AND last... always trust your motherly instincts!
