hey guys, checking in!
Lindsay I'm so thrilled to hear Sophia's surgery went well! Hope you are home in no time!
speaking of home, we got discharged on the 27th! Woohoo! After 42 LONG days in the hosp I am so happy to be HOME!
we came home on Lasix, ranitidine (zantac), sildenafil (viagra) and baby aspirin, nystatin for thrush and an oximeter that we only have to use twice daily, a scale, a weekly visiting nurse and strict orders to call the docs if she doesn't gain weight for two days in a row. overall not bad, but the feeding is stressing me out BIG TIME
they insist she needs extra calories, so I have to fortify my milk, which means I cannot nurse, and she has a minimum intake that she still has a hard time meeting (the worst is when it takes her 45 minutes to finish her measly 48ml and the PUKES it all up, what a waste of energy!)
that I have to feed her with a stupid bottle. Ugh. but it won't be like this forever...just until she gets strong enough to really be able to feed.
oh and pumping AND feeding a baby every three hours is as close to having twins as I'll ever get I spose, minus all the super cute twin photo ops!
but MAN! I am exhausted!
