Day 26

Yesterday a nurse came in to get us enrolled in our "Homeward Bound" discharge class for the end of November! I was like "are you sure you mean us?!" They are to be done about a month before going home. It is becoming more of a reality every day. I cannot believe how blessed we are.

We received Briella's birth certificate in the mail. I broke down while reading it. When we filled out the birth certificate paperwork the morning after she was born, there was a question-do you want to enroll your child in the national immunization registry? I had remembered a news story I saw a month prior of a mom who's child had been deceased for years an she was still being sent reminders that he was behind on immunizations. http://www.theindychannel.com/news/local-news/indiana-state-department-of-health-apologizes-for-sending-letters-to-deceased-children
I thought how gut wrenching that would be to get that reminder that she was gone. I thought about marking the answer no. But now I am so glad that I picked yes, that she is here, doing well. Glad that I get to hold her and smell her, an even hear her now. God is good.

Little Briella is now 800 grams, or 1lb 12 ounces! She can start wearing clothes around 3lbs, which we gestimate to be around December 6th. I am going to make a guess that she comes home on January 11th, my Grandma's birthday. The nurse says she thinks she will be in newborn size clothing when she comes home. I look at newborn & 0-3 month clothing and can't imagine her fitting into them right now. I can't wait.
