Like Gen, I was home right away
You must have misread my post. I had her right away, LOL. I did not go home right away.
That's the beauty of reading things on a 2 inch screen.......
go home quickly with my last two babies. They must have figured that at my age I didn't need to be in the hospital because they got me out right away. Madeleine's 19 hours cost $8000+ just for the hospital, (the equivalent of $11,400.00 today). They didn't even feed me, and I had to get up to get my own juice, water, ice, etc. I even kept the baby in with me the whole time because her blood sugar was low and I had to nurse her constantly to get it up. Ridiculous.
Hopefully, baby Elana had a better stay and is home and happy now!
