May the Road Rise to Meet You…

Slainte!

One year ago, my husband and I walked into the NICU at 8 am on Saturday morning, March 17. We had our cooler bag with bottles of my pumped milk from the night before and a “My 1st St. Patrick’s Day” bib. When we arrived at Drake’s pod, we were greeted by our favorite nurse, Ms. C. There was a surprise for us as he had just finished his first full feeding from a bottle!. She gave us the bottle with a handwritten certificate and a green tuft sprouting from the top. We found out at rounds that we could be going home in 2 to 3 weeks if he took to bottle feeding well and there were no more A&B’s or drops in weight gain. This was the first hope we had that Drake might actually be home before Easter.

“May God hold you in the palm of His hand.”

Yesterday, we actually got out of the house and went to our very good friends’ home for Corned Beef & Cabbage and some Rocksmith. D’s very first St. Patrick’s Day party!
