And we are equally delighted to say adios, au revoir, cheerio, and ciao to the first trimester! At 14 weeks, we are officially in the second trimester! When we got the email informing us that Meera was being discharged, I thought I would have been jumping up and down for joy, but it was more like a huge exhale from holding my breath for over six weeks, a sigh of relief, a weight being lifted off of us. We still have a long way to go, but if these past 13 weeks have taught us anything, it's to appreciate and celebrate the good news, as things can turn on a dime. So while we take it one day at a time, we are cautiously celebrating this huge milestone.
Finally, we have to acknowledge and express our gratitude for all the support we have continued to receive from our family and friends in person and online. We received so many comments, emails, texts, and calls helping us to cope over this difficult time. We appreciate all the advice and words of encouragement, as they definitely helped us manage the doubts, fears, and stress of this process. And of course we are thankful to Dr. Shivani, Yogita, Meg, Margarida, and all the medical team and administrative staff at SCI for keeping us updated and taking care of Meera and our little one.
Thank you, everyone, for your thoughts and prayers. They worked, and we are truly grateful.
