Baby David will officially be here Feb 3rd! My C-Section is scheduled for 8AM that day. I am so nervous, only 25 days left!
Today my mom went with me to tour the NICU at the hospital where I will be having David. The staff was wonderful, and explained everything to me. As soon as I have him they will take him across the hall in the NICU and stabilize him to be transferred to Children's Mercy. Chris will be able to be with him for the whole time, and to come back and forth between me and David to give me updates.
I was also very very happy to hear that they will not leave to the other hospital until I get a chance to see my baby. And Chris can take as many pictures as he wants! I've already given instructions that he CANNOT forget to take tons of pictures the whole time David is at the hospital where I will be. And for my mom to rush and get them developed for me! I need to have his pictures with me :)
The first day David will be at the hospital with me for a couple hours or more, and then transferred. On Day Two I can get a pass to go to the children's hospital for four hours to be with him. Day Three as long as I am stable I can request to be released. Believe me, I won't forget to remind them I need to go!
Next Friday I meet all the doctor's at the children's hospital and tour their NICU. I am feeling so good about my son being taken care of, it really is helping with the stress. They reassured me that he will be comfortable and in no pain. That means a lot.
