The girls have one nurse who has been there since the moment they were born. This nurse is amazing! She has sat with me through absolutely everything! She told me her story the other day, She has a daughter who was a 27 weeker and weigh 1 pound 1 ounce when she was born. The doctors told her to not expect her daughter to live through the first 24 hours of her life, her daughter is now 11 and perfectly healthy. During one of my moments she told me to close my eyes, she said now imagine your daughters 4 years old, your on your way to the ice cream store and all 3 girls are riding their tricycles. Your holding your husband's hand and laughing at how worried you were back in the day (meaning now). Savannah's in front and bolting down the sidewalk, Addisyn's right by your side because she's mommy's girl and Olivia is lagging behind because she's the tiniest. I don't know why but I felt so much better after that. I feel like there's light at the end of the tunnel There IS hope!
Every time I'm having a moment I go back to "our ice cream store". I have now requested that she be the girls primary nurse any day she's working. Yesterday when I was being discharged she was there for us. It was only later this afternoon that I discovered she wasn't scheduled to work yesterday. She wasn't being payed for working yesterday she just wanted to be there for Gabe and I.
She truly is our guardian angel!!
