The Countdown…Day 29

26th March 2012

Was my first day back driving, Monday to Wednesday evenings 

we used to stay at John’s brother’s house, whilst he was out of the country. 
It was nice to be close to the hospital, but this was coming to an end, but so was the NICU journey. 
With counting down the days until Melody would be moving out of the unit, and coming home.
Today it felt good to be able to pack the car for a few days and drive over, 
without the need for buses or lifts. 

It was Incubator switch over day, they’d do it once a week. 
I remember taking this photo, wanting to show Melody when she was older the clear box, 
she had spent her first few months in. 
All in the name of memory. 
Today was daddy cuddle day. 
We would try and take it in turns to have cuddles. 
He was always too scared because she was so tiny. 
But she certainly love her daddy cuddles. 
She went back into her incubator, but not long after needed a nappy change…and a sheet change!
So someone so tiny, her bowels worked perfectly!
To save taking her out of the incubator again, I lifted her up to help the nurses. 
She looked quite chubby here. 
Back cosy finding her thumb. 
I am so pleased I took this video, for obvious reasons.
I initially only took it to show her siblings, we also have ones from the day of her birth too.
But they’re private.
