it's a good thing the bed was a good size-- we pretty much shared it the whole time!
As for the heart murmur, it is a hole in her heart, called VSD (Ventricular septal defect). The Dr. said it is quite common and usually closes up within the first year of life. She will have to be checked regularly with the cardiologist at Kaiser.
We finally brought Lily home on Thursday afternoon. It was such a relief to be home and out of a tiny hospital bed! That didn't last for long though...
Friday we were back at Kaiser to get Lily's bilirubin (jaundice levels) checked and for Jared and his Kidney Stones! The dr's finally decided to go ahead and perform surgery on him since he still hadn't passed the stones. Come to find out- the stone was 5x7 mm and had gotten stuck in his ureter! He went into surgery Sat. night (a kind of surgery no one wishes on their manhood!). Because of the size and swelling in his ureter, the Dr. was only able to blast 1/2 of the stone. The Dr. said it was the hardest stone he'd ever seen --he said it was like granite! Poor Jared was in A LOT of pain on Sunday and Monday but had to return to the Police Academy b/c he is only aloud to miss 40 hours for the entire 6 month period.
So I feel like wonder woman in a way--this past few weeks I've been recovering from child birth, taking care of a newborn in the NICU, and taking care of a husband recovering from surgery! Oh and to make things even more comical- I got mastitis (a breastfeeding infection) this week!
After all this...I can conquer the world! haha.
