After 93 days in the NICU Lincoln is home on his due date!!!! Today is full of emotions, I dont really know how to feel. Overwhelmed is a good word. We roomed in the last 2 night with him and it went good but we had the nurses there. We wont have them tonight to ask questions. I am nervous and scared. I am also sad because we left Pierce there and Lincoln cant see his twin again until he is home. Its so hard! We have an apnea monitor. O2 and a pulse ox.

He isnt quite getting the concept of nursing too well. He is picky who he eats from and what bottle we give him. He will latch on but has a very poor suck and gets frustrated. Nursing is something we will work on and until he gets it we will pump!

Oh Aimes I'm so happy to hear that he's home! I'm sure Pierce will follow when he's ready. Even with all the difficulty, you're a fabulous mother and I'm sure everything will be just fine!
