I thought about this today and have been thinking about this for the last couple of weeks. Sasa is still in the NICU. Since we are FL residents with FL Medicaid and I gave birth in NY, we are having problems with getting an O2 monitor for us to go home. I have no idea how long it's going to take to get the monitor, but it better be before I have to buy another tube of toothpaste! I guess I'm trying to give myself a goal to get to: "We will be home before the toothpaste is finished". Do I think it will happen? Well, considering this is the third time I've said this, no. I'm struggling to get though it here. I'm in such a unique situation that I don't think anyone can relate. Yes, there are many preemie parents out there, but any who aren't even in a state bordering their home state? I don't think so. There were so many "I want to be home before..." dates including, ...by the end of September, ...before their due date, ...sometime mid-October, ...before Halloween, and our new one ...before Thanksgiving. If I'm not home before Thanksgiving, I don't know what I'm going to do.
We made it home on 11/9/2010. I didn't have to buy toothpaste and we will be celebrating Thanksgiving with our family in FL. God is so good!
