So I was released from the hospital today and now we are in Des Moines with our new little one. So far Allison is doing great! Last night they were giving her 70% oxygen to breathe, this morning they were down to 55%, by the time we got here 25% (normal air has about 21%oxygen) and now she is off the oxygen completely. They will do a few more blood tests here shortly to make sure she is doing well without the help of the oxygen, but so far things look promising. Next thing is that we have to get her eating and make sure that her blood oxygen levels stay where they are supposed to be. They will check out her heart tomorrow, but she doesn't show any signs of being in distress because of the murmur. There also seem to be no signs of infection so far, so at this point we are hopefully on track to go home Friday! She's doing such a great job and we can't wait to be able to hold her and act like we really have a new baby!
