We checked in and then scrubbed in at the entrance to the Neonatal ICU. The sign above the wash station said to scrub for 3 minutes. Have you ever tried to do that? It's harder than brushing your teeth for 2 minutes! The clock was ticking by so slow...then I had to wait for Mike and Kristin to scrub in too! My heart was in my throat by the time Kristin finally reached for the handle to open the door to the NICU.
It was hard to leave the hospital, but Kristin needed to get home (guess we were keeping her from her big Valentine’s date with her husband! Lol). Until the birth mom signs the official relinquishment papers (which she is supposed to do tomorrow), we have to have Kristin with us to go visit the baby.
