Went to the Cardiologist today & got the all clear. I can call back if I have any problems, which I haven't so far. It's been 5 1/2 weeks since being hospitalized and I am feeling pretty good.

Ms. Lauren was pretty good most of the way there. She's good for about 45 min. in the car seat, then forget it. I'm having a BAD feeling that our trip home for Christmas is going to be #e77 on wheels, if you KWIM. If it gets too bad, I'll make DH come home & we will go back when she's older. I just think that an 8 hour trip, even with lots of stops, will be too hard on a 9 week old. Maybe it's just me... dunno.

Well, I'd better read a few more posts before Lauren wakes up & wants some chow....

Glad to hear all checked out OK! You're a brave soul making that trip .. we had to make a 3 1/2 hour trip when Jessi was less than a week old due to a hurricane and it ended up being a good 5 hours. Of course, I didn't have the hang of leaning over and breastfeeding while we were riding yet!

Personally, I'd just tell everyone that they'll have to wait to meet Ms. Lauren. You ought to be resting and enjoying your first Christmas as a growing family! I never did enjoy hauling a baby and all her paraphanelia around!

Whatever you choose to do, good luck and have fun!

I'm glad everything checked out at the cardiologist!

I'm with Dawn - I'd be staying home for Christmas. That's just too far to take a baby that young in my opinion. But whatever you decide to do, have fun and be safe!

I am glad you are all ok now!! I would say bypass the trip too. But if you have to go then I would start the trip at a time when is usually sleeping. Like early am, evening, or whenever it she does her long stretches?

I'm glad you are doing okay! We travel quite a bit but I think ds is used to it. We usually travel during his naptime and stop if he gets too fussy.

I'm lucky. Kate is a car baby. She'd crash the whole way there. I hope lauren does the same. I'm glad you're doing so much better.
