I left her at approximately 8:20 am smiling, happy and comfortable.
I had some breakfast and began the day long wait before I would see her again. I spent the day in the parent room sleeping as I had been up the entire night before with the littlest man who obviously felt that he was going to have to fight for some equal time and attention and so became very ill.
I received updates through out the day. Closer to the end of the day I made my way to ICU where Ailish would be taken after some time in recovery. Somewhere between 6:30 and 7:00 pm I was able to lay eyes on and touch a very uncomfortable girl.
Her time in ICU would be short because of rock star numbers and by 9:30 we were on the unit.
So much pain.
