There's a great disturbance in the Force. [Frown]

Thousands of jatraqeros cry out for baby pics!

Well, me anyway. But I can really disturb the Force. It's a gift.

I'm home from the hospital. I gave Maggie her last feeding before I left. She's still there; she has to have bililights and the insurance will only cover them keeping her in the hospital to use them. (The bililights they have are really nice, a little bilibed, but that doesn't make me happy about leaving her.)

I'm really emotionally distraught right now-- I kinda threw a fit and refused to ride in the wheelchair when I left, even-- so I'll talk about the birth later. I know she's fine and it will only be a few hours but I just have such a hard time leaving my baby. [Cry]

Thank you everyone for the congratulations and good wishes. They really mean a lot to me and I'm sorry I can't be more communicative right now.

((kq)) I'm so sorry you had to leave without her. In your place, I would have thrown a fit too (and probably been not nearly as nice as I'm sure you were). I hope she'll be able to come home with you very, very soon!!

Oh, I really need to check in more. I'm so happy for you. I'm so sorry you had to leave without her, I'm sure that was horrible! Hopefully, by now, she's home with you and your family.

We had to leave Candace at the hospital for four days after Cindy left (she was in for four days herself). I know how hard that is.

Thoughts and prayers for everyone.

This is the sort of thing that makes one question the sanity of insurance executives. Its not as if its going to save them money to keep the baby in the hospital.

Of course you are. Any new Mom would be. You don't need to apologize, your reaction is completely normal and healthy.

It really pisses me off that you and others get put through this kind of emotional trauma for absolutely no rational reason.

Actually, that is exactly how my pediatrician talked the insurance company into covering the cost of lights at home -- by showing them how much cheaper it was for them than having my daughter readmitted to the hospital.

Unfortunately, IME, too few insurance companies are willing to listen to such arguments. [Razz]

I hope Maggie is home very soon, kq!

I'm feeling a bit better today, but she won't be home until Mon. morning. At least, we're 99% certain she'll be able to come home Mon. morning.

((kq)) Come home today Maggie!! You're dealing really well with this - hopefully being separated from her will end very very soon!!

I can't wait to see pictures, but you need to take care of yourself and her before worrying about silly things like posting pictures for us to coo over. [Smile]

So we got to the hospital to feed her and the nurse said, "The doctor was just here and she was discharged. I imagine you'll want to feed her first?" Yes I did! I surely did! Ouch!

Anyway, she ate a TON, and now she is sleeping it off. We are very very happy she is home (especially me, but the rest of the family too.) The cat is checking her out right now. [Smile]

I have lots and lots and lots of pictures, of course, and I think I will probably get around to uploading them some time this afternoon. When I do I'll post some of her birth story. Right now I'm going to just kinda relax and stare at her beautiful little self lying in the playpen. [Smile]

Congratulations on getting Maggie into the world and getting to bring her home. [Smile]

I'm especially enjoying the name you gave her, since one of those names is one of my names (although not the one I use regularly) and the other is the name of my aunt whom I resemble most closely. [Smile]

Oh, yes, I did the short hair in December. And actually, though I need one, haven't had a haircut since (we're thinking this week before Jeff goes back to work we'll both get them.) But I just got to the point where I couldn't deal with it! It was a big change at first but now I love it. [Smile]

I don't. I mean, she's beautiful and all, but I am not the least bit tempted.

I'm very happy having all mine potty trained, thank you. [Razz]

KQ, glad she's home and everybody is doing well. I'm most impressed you can get three car seats across the back of a sedan - I had to buy a van!

Beautiful baby (and big sissies too). Man, they have grown since I saw them, but I guess it has been six months or so.

Welcome home little baby.

Lovely.

KQ, I'm curious, how long will Maggie last in her Radian? We've started looking at carseats, and while a Radian is a bit more expensive then some of the other options, if it lasts longer I may have to look a bit further into it.
