I'm still a little in shock over how quickly everything went once it got going. I wasn't sure if I was in labor for the first several hours, then suddenly I was sure, then a couple hours later Daisy was born. Crazy!
Daisy had some liquid suctioned out of her stomach after she was born. She was a little bubbly for a while afterward.
But the best thing about this hospital was the "Nourishment Room," which was a fully stocked kitchenette that patients were given free access to. There were snacks of every kind - cookies, crackers, cereal, yogurt, pudding, jello, popsicles, ice cream - and beverages of every kind - sodas, water, hot coffee/tea/cocoa, aaaaand SLUSHIES!!
I didn't have any, but the kids sure enjoyed them. Possibly more exciting than getting a baby sister. I think each kid had three cups o' slush each time they visited.
But don't worry, the kids also thoroughly enjoyed meeting their new sister, Elinor especially.
Unfortunately, it wasn't all snacks and slushies during our stay. Early Wednesday morning, around 4:00am, Daisy's bilirubin levels shot up and the doctor wanted to keep her an extra day on the bili-lights. So, our little blue light special got to catch some rays while I hung out in my room catching up on episodes of "When Calls the Heart" (don't judge!).
