Thank you so much for your good thoughts, kind words, and for sharing in our joy! (And a huge thank you to Kristin for taking the time to bring our good news to all of you.
|Our wee little family|
Pippin and I are home, with my Beloved and Ginny. Our time in the hospital wasn't easy, but mercifully short, given where it started. Thankfully, I am healing on a good pace, and I think being at home will speed that along.

Pip spent almost 48 hours in the NICU, due to extremely low blood sugars. There was some concern about his heart (irreguluar heartbeat) and muscle tone as well, although those were minor and corrected themselves once his blood sugars were better.
He was released from the NICU yesterday, and even though he has a bit of a tongue tie, he is a champion nurser! And, I'm actually producing a fair amount of colostrum/milk. It's early days, but I'm hopeful.
We had a minor set-back late yesterday, when Pip developed jaundice. They were concerned enough to do a billirubin test this morning, and it came back in the safe zone, so we were given the all clear to come home.

Ginny is adjusting. She's not sure what to make of this new little person in our world. But she's curious, and that's a good sign for right now.
We're taking everything, one moment at a time.
Life is good.
