Slowly, we are getting the hang of life outside an ICU. I require frequent reminders that Elliott is doing "normal baby" things. My mom is ever so patiently guiding me through my rather severe case of monitor withdrawal. I assumed that I would feel some anxiety once Elliott was freed from his wire tether to the great information box. I may be feeling a bit more anxiety than I had anticipated....then again, I was destined to be an anxious parent, regardless of Elliott's health.
