We went up to Yale and before we took her for the procedure, we stopped up at the NICU. We saw the wonderful Bruna who was our care manager and got us all set up to bring Lydia home. We also saw Dr. Bizzaro who was the first doctor to see her at Yale. He started the big push to get Lydia home to us quickly. It was great to be able to bring her back to see them! We didn't expect she'd be here long enough to take her to visit. Thank you both (I hope you're reading!) for taking such good care of Lydia and of us!
We brought her down and only waited for a few minutes. Those were enjoyable minutes because they had Babe on the TV. Awesome. Again, I was FREAKING OUT. The physicians assistant came in and took one look at her site and said, "This looks awesome!" I was pleasantly shocked. Apparently, she's seen some pretty nasty stuff.
She pulled out the tube, popped in the button and we were done. It was ridiculously easy. It went perfectly. Here are some pictures!
