Congrats on your little girl! My little guy spent 11 days in the NICU and it can be difficult and frustrating to go home without your baby. I spent everyday with him at the hospital. That's wonderful that she's off the IV. Get rest while you can, that definitely made a difference in speeding up my healing time. Good luck and hope she comes home soon!
