Kailya's Birth Story
Kailya turned 3 weeks old yesterday and I was informed that she will be discharged from the hospital this week.....I am so excited and anxious and really wasn't sure if there was light at the end of the tunnel. I am going through all the normal postpartum emotions that every parent goes through and then some.
I worry about long term health issues she may face,the possibility of learning disabilities and whether or not I will be good enough for her. I am so looking forward to having my daughter home with me where she belongs and not having to settle for seeing her in the hospital. It is so hard to have to leave her everyday and not know exactly what is happening with her and being the one to get up with her in the middle of the night to feed her,change her and soothe her.
I have always believed that the hardest job in the world,the least appreciated and the most rewarding is being a parent but now I know that is true for sure. I love my little princess more than anything in this world and will do all I can to ensure she grows up to be healthy, happy and very loving. I appreciate all the NICU staff has done for her and for us and will never be able to thank them all enough for the support, encouragement and care they have shown us. I pray not too many more people will have to go through what we are but hope they all have great outcomes if they do.
