Unfortunately it does not look like Veronica will come home tomorrow. Last night she went back on CPAP, something which is not uncommon for babies who have been on CPAP for an extended period of time. I don't have any of the details yet, but needless to say this is a huge disappointment. We have seen it happen numerous times before - parents given a discharge day and then for whatever reason it gets pushed back and back and back.....this is all part of the NICU journey. While we knew this could happen, nothing could really prepare us for how disappointing this would feel. So we will give ourselves some time to feel sad and discouraged. But then it's time to hold our heads high. She WILL come home. We know that to be a fact. And she IS doing well which often is not the case for 24 weekers. We will get there....slowly but surely, we will get there. Thanks for all of the prayers and support.
