You're home! Champ is home! You can now nurse in your sleep and change a diaper with one hand at 3AM!


So happy for you, Sarah! Up until the day you came home, your journey has been absolutely amazing. You went through the ringer, and came out like a champion yourself. Thank you so much for sharing with all us strangers!

Can't wait for the next chapter - Champ: The Happy Times... (the pukey times, the "how does someone so small make something so big & stinky" times, the smiley times, etc., etc.)

More pics!! More pics!! More pics!!

Amazing photo. Doesn't she already seem so grown up compared to that first day at home?

Good for you. GOOD FOR YOU!

And how dare he? Yeah, it's a teaching hospital and they need to ASK your permission for the hordes to speak with you, and you have the right to say "no."

I am in awe. You are so totally a kick-ass mom.

She's so adorable! And definitely a Champ, as is her Mama Bear of a mother. Good for you for sticking to your guns and getting you both home to your warm, welcoming place. Now enjoy all aspects of motherhood.

I've spent a LOT of time at teaching hospitals and while I purposefully chose the non-teaching hospital system for Finn's pediatrician as a result, I never ever ever did teaching rounds with the patient's mom in the hallway. Never. I'm so glad you stood up for yourself and Champ and got her home!

And now that you have that all documented, I hope you'll be updating us on all the wonderfulness that is being a MOM!

hal ah loul ya....home again, home again, jiggity jig it's really great isn't it!

This sounds so incredibly stressful but you handled it like a true Mom. Your little one is so lucky to have you advocating for her and looking out for her! She is absolutely precious!

I am so sorry your first few days were so traumatic. When some poor customer service specialit calls to get feedback on your experience with their facility, I hope you give it with both barrels.

My Books (with Elizabeth Craft)

  • 'Bass Ackwards and Belly Up' and 'Footfree and Fancyloose' tell the story of four best friends who commit the ultimate suburban sin: putting off college to pursue their dreams.

    Publisher's Weekly said: "Full of romance and adventure, laughter and tears, the story is a reminder that veering from the straight and narrow road doesn't always lead to a dead end."

    What is Starfish Envy??

    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
