Yesterday when they took Avi down to clean her up and check all the vitals.
As she was crying... she stopped breathing and turned a little purple. This happened twice.
So... They took her down in NICU (Newborn Intensive Care Unit -to run some blood tests and make sure there's no infections...
Daddy's Official Report: "I would have stop breathing too if they'd taken me from "Hot-Momma," stripped me naked - or in her case kept her naked - and started poking my rib and prodding my sides..."
The down side: Avi had to spend the night down stairs just to be sure nothing else is askew... Charissa and I went down during the night to feed her... We'll actually Charissa did most of the feeding... i was more of the wheel-chair-chauffeur.
....Charissa is doing well and feeling great (considering she just delivered a 8Ib baby.
She will be discharged from her current room and moved to the third floor near the NICU. They want to keep Avi one more night "just to make sure" everything continues to be alright.
The upside: since Charissa will be staying in a "Parent Room" it is equipped with all the monitors - thus Avi gets to stay in the same room...
