Sadly, I’m still sick. Yuck. I got the flu. (At least I got it before Kaitlyn comes home), but yesterday I even had a temperature. Sheesh, haven’t I had enough already?
The Doc called me this am to tell me that Kaitlyn has moved to the “Big Girl Room.” Our NICU has 2 rooms, one is for more stable babies and the babies who are closer to going home! I guess a whole bunch of new babies came in last night and they needed the room to help other little ones. She’s still in an incubator, as she can’t maintain her own temperature yet, but she’s heading in the right direction. This is great news.
And even better news, Kaitlyn took some of my milk out of her first bottle (just 5cc’s) – she’s up to 30 cc’s, so she got the rest still through the feeding tube inserted into her stomach. The saddest thing is that neither Brian nor I were there to witness the event (and of course document via camera). But I’m still very happy. Brian hasn’t gone to the NICU for 2 days also, just in case he started to come down with this bug.
Today I started feeling better (no fever), but still hacking away. Good news on the incicsion front, it is almost healed. I'm even tending it to myself (ever since Brian went back to work). It's just open a tiny little bit, a band-aid would probably cover it, but it's still oozing, some I'm still covering it with a gauze pad.
Can you believe that you’ve added to the 5,300+ views that my blog has received? That’s amazing to me, and I thank you for all of your support – it really means the world to Brian and I.
