After the emergency caesarian, Tanya needed me quite a bit, so I ended up staying in the hospital with her until Friday. The rooms in the MCU are nice, but the fold out arm chairs which become a bed for the odd stay here and there are not so good for my back. Things were a bit strange as we didn’t have Mackenzie in the room with us, but down at the NICU where she was being closely monitored.Mackenzie was a little irritable in the first few days, but in the end, she didn’t need any medicine to help her over the meds that Tanya had to take to make it through the pregnancy.I had my diabetic nurse appointment at 9 am, so the commute two floors down was pretty easy. It turns out I have type 2 diabetes, which is not so good, but the prognosis is good if I can lose the weight, which should also help the high blood pressure and the sleep apnea. We talked about a bunch of stuff, but the main thing is behavior modification, along with diet and exercise changes. I have way more to learn about living with diabetes, including learning to live with pricking my finger four times a day.However, during the diabetic appointment I started having the sniffles, and soon enough it’s turned into quite the rotten cold. I’ve been unwell now for a number of days, which is no good when all I really want to do is hold Mackenzie. I still feel a bit disconnected from it all as we didn’t have her in the room, and because of the cold, I really haven’t had a lot of opportunities to bond with her beyond a feed here or there.
