Clarity goes home from the NICU

Clarity the baby who's been across from Little T his whole stay finally went home. She's almost 3 months old and has been in the NICU pretty much since birth. She got transferred to Stanford the same day he was born. I was really happy for them, but also really jealous. Maybe that's why Little T had a hard time breastfeeding that day. We also learned something from them. Clarity was ready to go home early last week, but her family couldn't take her home. The hospital wouldn't release her without nursing care at night and at first the insurance company refused to provide it. I expect we'll face something similar, because Little T will probably require a lot of physical therapy for his arm and our HMO has a limit of 60 days after injury.

It turned out we were utterly wrong about getting any help beyond 3 nurse visits that each lasted 1/2 hour. And we drowned.
