It feels liberating and a little scary.
For Mom and baby it was a race to the finish. Andrew won the race by four hours, graduating from the NICU around one in the afternoon on Tuesday April 10th after spending part of six days under intensive care. The evening before, the doctors started Shelly on a new blood pressure drug. The impact was dramatic and after several days of very elevated levels Mom's blood pressure was considered stable and Mom was cleared for release Tuesday evening.
It wasn't our plan, but it was in the end a pleasant experience, like spending a week in the hotel with better service and no pool.
