"My daughter has been in and out of hospital for three weeks"

(as a parent/guardian),

My daughter has been in and out of hospital for three weeks. Eventually she got the the gallbladder op she needed. She has a seven week old baby and has been separated for days, which is not good at this early stage of his life. She also had an emergency c-sect when he was born at 42 weeks. Wow he was 9lb3 no surprise! In my opinion it was left too long. Can't tell you how worried we have been, but hopefully home tomorrow
