11/2/14 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Tuesday

Continued from 11/1/10.  I spoke of how difficult it was for my husband to see our son in the Special Care Nursery but I didn't get to my own meltdown (which I feel I have had more frequently since I've been pregnant and I hate not feeling in control of my emotions!).  We spent the entire first day from 8-7 up in the nursery with FJ.  I finally could no longer take the pain of sitting for so long because I was so sore so I had to spend the rest of the night lying down in my room.  After my two and a half days were up in the hospital many parents "rent" a room from the hospital and stay there for the rest of the week.  However, we decided we would not get enough sleep at the hospital and my Dad couldn't take care of the dogs anymore because my mom has been so sick with chronic migraines.  I know it's weird but my dogs are my babies too and I was feeling a lot of guilt when I was away from my son and a lot of guilt when I was away from the dogs.  The day we left for the hospital they were freaked out from my painful contractions.  Even though we knew we would be living at the hospital during the day some semblance of normalcy at night would help us and the dogs too.  I wanted to sleep in my own bed.  Feeling so torn between being at home and the hospital and just heartbroken that my son was so sick had me smack in the middle of my own meltdown.  I just wanted so badly to be able to take my son home and begin our lives together - with a healthy little boy.  To be continued...
