This morning the nurses came in and pricked Myer’s foot for some tests. His bilirubin (sp.?) count was borderline for jaundice, so the doctor decided that he should work on his tan for today and tonight. So we haven’t been able to hold him as much…..but we take a lot of breaks for feeding, cuddling and diaper changes.
Seth parents have left and we’re just trying to rest and make it through tonight and tomorrow. We’ve already become tearful and feel overwhelmingly blessed to parent Myer for even the last three days. It’s definitely unreal to be in this spot: still in the hospital….and hoping for time to pass a little quicker…so he can be ours…but yet…not wanting time to go by too fast, because he’s already changed so much in the last 3 days…and we really want to hold on to these moments.
Tomorrow will be packed full of discharge and adoption/attorney papers….Myer’s first bath, his hospital pictures….and hopefully we’ll be home in the evening…if all goes as planned. Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers…the 72 hours are technically this evening at 9:48pm…..but birthmom will be signing papers tomorrow around 1:00-1:30. Our attorney hopes to be here between 3:00 and 3:30.
