Dr. Golander came to check her. I figured I had nothing to lose, so I went for it. I told him that the only reason we are still having trouble is because my milk is low and she is adamant about nursing. 

He said that it is a usual fall out after heart surgery that there is some regression in eating. He asked if we wanted to be moved to a room. I said, well, actually hospitals aren't conducive to sleep. Everything will go back to normal if they let us go home. Then I held my breathe. 

"I think it's conceivable that you should go home. Let me talk to Dr. Erez."

Dr. Erez and Dr. Golander came in a half hour later. They looked over her charts and asked me if I felt comfortable taking her home. "Extremely". I repeated everything again and they nodded their heads. 

"Alright. We'll do an echo and if everything is good, you can go home after we take out some stitches."

Now is where I curtsy. 

We are doing the echo now. Hold your breathe.
