We are tucked away in the Launch Pad currently – no nurses in sight – just Amy, me and the Benjamin. Before we left our pod, we walked around a bit to visit other nurses and see all the spots Ben has stayed in over the last 6 months. It’s funny how different it is to hold and carry a baby with no wires or IVs – you can go anywhere you want!
The launch pad is nice – it’s like a budget hotel room with a big code blue button that will send a dozen medical staff in here in seconds. We even got a visit from Arleth (a NICU mom who shared our pod for a long time) and her family. It was really sweet of them to visit and wish us well. We hope her little one is next to leave.
Benjamin is behaving so far – he likes being held and has been super cute. I hope he sleeps some tonight because we are both exhausted after not being able to sleep at all last night due to excitement. Tomorrow is big day and it would help to get some sleep.
Also tomorrow Cayman finally gets to meet Benjamin! Amy refuses to let me get a saddle for Benjamin to ride on him with, but I know they will still be fast friends.
