Congratulations on the birth of your sweetheart!! I also delivered my DD at 36 weeks on 10/6 and like Delaney, she was in the NICU [for 8 days] for difficulty breathing, fluid in her lungs and an infection- on CPAP, IV feeding and antibiotics. I didn't get a chance to hold her when she was first born and was able to hold her for about a minute a few hours later once she was in the NICU. Tell the nurses that you need to hold her- even if it's for a few minutes. You will cry your eyes out [as I am sure you are doing anyway] but will also feel so much better. Remember that she is getting the best possible care in the NICU. I know it is so hard to leave her in there... I was in your shoes 2 short weeks ago!! Lots of prayers and get strong vibes for little Delaney!! FM me if you need to vent/chat.
