This is a quick post as I am just home from the NICU to take a shower.
Lillian was born at 9:01pm Friday May 27th at Andulaz Waterbirth Center in Tualitan, OR. She weighted 7lbs 1 1/2 oz. and measured 20 1/2 inches long.
She has high respitory rate that didn't go away in the first 24 hours so she was transfered to the OHSU, neo-natal unit late Saturday night. She is still there as we are waiting for the results of a blood culture and she is needing to increase her fluid intake and get through a mild bought of jaundice.
I am pumping and nursing her as much as I can tolerate so that she gets most of her fluid from me. The rest is being supplemented via IV as I am adamant that she get nothing by mouth but breast milk. That is a real fight each time she gets a new nurse I have to explain my position all over again.
I will give y'all a longer birth story etc when we are finally home for good. Hopefully in the next 1-2 days.
