So disappointing

Our  visit to the NICU was so disappointing, in every other than seeing our sweet baby.

We were told that we could take Addah home today but when we came in at 9 this morning, her temp had dropped to 96.9, which reset the doctor’s orders to have temps over 97 for 48 hours. I am so upset. I nursed her and cuddled with her. We took her temp 30 minutes later and it was 97.4. The room feels cold to me. I keep wondering (and asking) if maybe the low tempeatures could have been due to the air conditioning being on in December, or maybe due to nurse’s error. The neonatologist came in and said that if Addah still looked this good tomorrow with no more drops in temperature, we could take her home.

Fingers crossed!
