January 10th, 2008
Carver is going to be dismissed from the hospital tomorrow since he will not require any surgery at this time. The hospital has really tried to accommodate me. They offered to let Carver stay in his bed and use their oxygen. They even offered to lend me a small oximeter. However, this would tie me to the room. I would not be able to leave the room. I'm not sure how I would manage meals, showers, etc.... I only brought 4 pairs of clothes (since I have a washer/dryer at my hotel), so not sure how I would even wash clothes. The hospital staff could not care for him due to liability reasons. The insurance company won't allow him to stay since there is no need for him to be there. So, the hospital is going to get me oxygen and an oximeter - rentals. My other problems... I was only allowed 2 bags for both babies and myself combined. The plan was to keep the babies in the hospital till they went home, so all I have is a car seat. I don't even have a base for the car seat. I don't have a stroller, bed, formula, meds, or diapers. I have a couple of burp rags, and a couple of bottles. The head of the Peds floor said that she thinks she has a stroller in storage that she can lend me. So, tomorrow will be interesting. Right now, I'm sizing up the laundry basket in my hotel room - perhaps it will work for a bed ;O). Anyway, I'm sure we'll manage. God always seems to take care of us. As long as I have a stroller, oxygen, and an oximeter I think we'll do fine. I just hate the thought of hauling him all over the place and in/out of the peds floor.
