We kept hoping we'd be released that night but they heard a heart murmur and wanted to run some tests and have him stay overnight. They had him see a pediatric cardiologist and she said it was just an innocent murmur and that it would likely close up soon. The pediatrician saw him in the morning and said he was probably just fine and it was okay for us to go home that day. Hubby had gone home for the night to get some rest and I got to have some one on one time with L.
Back at home Hubby noticed that A was getting a rash on her neck along with the sore throat she had for 2 days. He called me about it and I asked the pediatrician when she came in to talk about L. She said it was likely strep throat. So Hubby made an appointment for her to go in. It was strep throat and when there is a rash it's called Scarlet Fever. She never did have a fever and nowadays it's not the serious illness that it used to be. The pediatrician said it was fine for L to be around her since children under 2 years rarely would catch that.
So we finally got out of the hospital around 1:45 and got home and my Sis was there to greet us. We visited for a while and then the rest of the afternoon and evening we just rested and spent time looking at our sweet new little baby. A wanted to hold him all the time and was just in love. She wanted to touch him and hold him and get her picture taken with him.
Hubby could get a little work done while he was holding him.
Just big as Daddy's arm.
I caught a little smile!
