Materially I am prepared, the specially adapted Britax two way elite is secure in the car, the hospital bag is packed with the array of nappies I have been told to take. The occupational therapist came and did a home assessment on Thursday and I have stocked up on big socks and leg warmers.
However emotionally I am not prepared, this feels 10 times more scary than bringing a newborn home. At least then you have lots of people around you who have done it before, this is a whole new ball game. I have major worries about hygiene and keeping the cast dry and fresh. I don’t know how long it is going to be before she settles and gets over the initial shock and trauma of being in the cast.
Life is about to change for us all for the foreseeable future and I am very apprehensive.
