I had Nolan on Wednesday, May 4th and on Friday, May 6th Dr. Newman and the nurse said if I was ready to go home I could or I could stay another night. There really wasn't anything they could do for me at the hospital that my mom or Gray couldn't have done for me at home! :) Gray and I decided mid-morning that we would try to leave the hospital by late Friday afternoon. I went in to the hospital with a bad cold and by Friday I started coughing really bad and my nurse was a little concerned about what she heard in my lungs. With my lung history, the nurse called Dr. Newman and ordered a chest x-ray. I also requested something for the coughing because it was hurting to cough and I just wanted it to go away! Thankfully, my chest x-ray came back normal...just stinky to feel so miserable! They advised me to take Robitussin DM when I got home and continue my other pain medicines. Gray and I were so excited to leave with Nolan but a little nervous too. They let us leave the hospital with a newborn, no Dept. of Family and Children's Services involvement or anything!! Just us with a 2 day old baby!! Craziness.
Because I was feeling pretty poorly, I didn't get any pics of Nolan in his "coming home" outfit by himself not in his carseat ( -1 for mom). I wasn't totally thinking I felt like we had moved into the room and we had a lot to get out. Here are our pictures of us leaving the hospital, a family of 3! :)
