Thank you, Carol!  We took your suggestion to ask the charge nurse to switch out our first nurse whose bedside manner was not to our liking, and they did so with no questions asked, like you said.  We would have never thought to self advocate like that, so thank you!  We can’t even describe the love we feel for our son.  We look forward to seeing you all again (plus the other new additions!) in a few weeks!
Love, David, Talia & Emet
