10 days old!

Addah Shannon weighs 4 lbs 3.5 oz. as of this morning, and she is 10 days old.

I decided that I could not sit in the NICU for another morning only to be disappointed again. I went in at 10 this morning to nurse Addah, and just as I was getting up to leave, the nurse said that the neonatologist was right there wanting to talk to me. He came in and said “she looks great, go ahead and take her on home”.

I thought I might just leap into the man’s arms and kiss him! I have never heard such wonderful news!

I practically ran out to the waiting room to tell Drew and Lakin the good news. We left briefly to take Lakin to my mom’s and then came back to pick up our little baby. We left the hospital at 2 this afternoon with our entire family… so great!

Addah - 10 days old - first day home!
