I posted last Monday that a new week felt like the start of another window of waiting.
I did get a text update from Anna early in the week, but it was one of those "nothing to report" type of updates. She said she still didn't know the planned discharge date and would try to find out why the baby was being kept so long. (Is something wrong? Is she actually having withdrawal issues? Does she just need more "growing" time?)
That was all I heard all week.
And, now, it is Monday again.
I do have some school meetings this week that will be easier to do sans baby, so part of me is selfishly hoping things continue to drag out. But I wonder....is that baby alone in the NICU? Is anyone visiting her, holding her, loving on her? I know that NICU nurses are fantastic and loving people, but they have more to do than just hang out with one patient all day.
Lucy spent 5 weeks in a NICU. But that time, I didn't even know she existed until I also knew that she would be coming here in a few days.
