Not sure if this is the right forum so mods please correct me if its not. The happiest day of my life happened on Monday when my baby girl was born, 7lb2oz bundle or gorgeousness. Since that day its all gone breasticles up and I could do with some advice from my fellow arrsers. Mrs Neutron isn't doing too well at the hospital, she has had a bad medical history with blood clots etc and since birth has caught a rather nasty water and stomach infection and possibly blood clots again. Off medication the pain is unbearable and on medication she is dozey and sleeps. Therefore she is unable to sufficiently (or to my liking) look after the baby due to being on a drip 24/7 and beink sick and having the sh1ts. Baby is feeding happily from a bottle and is 100% tip top condition, all blood works etc are clear unlike her poor mother. I have asked a few times to take her home to ease the burden on the missus so she can stay in and rest properly but have been treated with no respect and told no chance. They have failed to give me a satisfactory reason why but expect me to be happy when they say that mother and baby need another week in hospital! My question to the lads and lasses is can I discharge the little one on the grounds that neither the hospital or my better half can look after her as well as I can? I have 12 weeks off work, the house is more than ready for baby, my mother and sister who both have had 3 kids are litterally 2 minutes away, i can get to the hospital faster than frank sinatra can sing when i was 17, etc etc etc. What do you think? Am i being an arrse cause the hospital staff are going out of their way to make me think i am.
