1 more day!?!?!?

Today I went to the hospital for Kayla's car seat evaluation. When a baby is premature they have to do a lot of different things for their safety. She passed with flying colors. I was hoping I would be taking her home today but it didn't happen. She has had episodes with apnea, which is when they don't breath for a period of time. The doctors like to wait 5 to 7 days after their last episode before they send the baby home. Her last one was the 15th so that would make it wed or later before we can bring her home. Well I got a call after I came home and they decided because she is doing so well that they will send her home tomorrow with a monitor. So she will have the monitor for a month or 2 which makes me feel better because I will know if she stops breathing. SO I will be at the hospital all day tomorrow. I have to be there at 9 and the course is 3 hours long. Then I will hang out until I am totally comfortable with the monitor and then we will bring her home. Yay!!! I can't wait to get her home. We have waited so long and not having her here makes it hard. I am excited for Alex to meet his new little sister. It will be interesting to see how he is with her.
