The whole family's at home now, Sonia and Dalia were discharged Friday, and both are doing extremely well. Dalia got off to a rough start, however. During labour, she had a bowel movement while in the uterus, and ended up swallowing a large amount of merconium (stool). As soon as she was born, she was whisked away to have her stomach and lungs suctioned. She then had a higher than normal respiratory rate (which would make breastfeeding too difficult for her), and had to be kept in the nursery on I-V for the first night. On top of that, her bloodwork showed a mild infection. By Wednesday evening, she was off the I-V, had beat the infection and was in the room with Sonia.
Jump ahead to the present, and she's eating and pooping like a champ. We've been out for a few walks around the neighbourhood, and we're looking forward to our first outing soon.
On a biking related note, it seems like I won't doing any cross races anytime soon, and not much riding at all for that matter. But in the grand scheme of things, I wouldn't have it any other way.
