Tomorrow's the big day. We are due at the hospital at 8:30AM.
There's a new nightgown
A kitty friend to bring along--there's one for Miranda as well since I'm very conscious of the potential for her to feel overlooked
And a box with scissors, markers, glue and other fun things, as well as books for reading aloud.
When Ivy was in the NICU for her first surgery, I would visit her but really didn't know what to do, I couldn't hold her and she was too young to talk to. So I would read books. I started with little kid picture books, and then moved on to chapter books. She heard all of the Harry Potter books while lying in the NICU and reading them took my mind of my own anxiety.
I'm going to have limited, if any computer access while at the hospital, so may not be able to update until early next week, but I promise to get some sort of information up as soon as possible.
