I'm sorry you are hurting so much . I assume they have given you some good drugs?

They gave me darvocet for the pain, but taking it makes me sick.....I took one finally yesterday afternoon, and had the neighbor watch the kids.....I was puking within an hour Right now other than that one darvocet, I havent had anything for the pain since I left the hospital.

The pain is a little better this morning.......im actually able to get up and move without crying, but just since getting up, it has gotton a little more painful.....DP is back at work, so I have no choice but to be up with the kids.

Im posting an Ayden update in the original post.

Oh momma, I hope you feel better soon. This must be really tough on you. Thanks for the update. Ayden is just precious. You both remain in my prayers.

Don't be hard on yourself re: pumping - it seems the milk WILL increase, as long as there's some milk flowing - in the end, I found skipping a pumpng when I needed to sleep for 4 hours straight increased volume more than keeping with the killer 2 hr pump schedule they recommend for NICU mom's (does any sane woman manage that -esp once you're out of the hospital?). Allow yourself to heal and I really do hope you get help with the kids - you have so much on your plate with the latest one as it is.

and aaaaaah, kangaroo care is a joy beyond words, for the both of you!

Take care, and many hugs.

for you and a for your little guy. This is such a tough time for both of you, and you're doing an amazing job so far. Keep up the good work. Rest when you can; it's okay to miss a pumping session. Like Kothi said, sleeping and healing is going to help you make more milk in the long run. I hope you start feeling better soon, too. It's so hard to drag yourself into the NICU several times a day when you should be home in bed.

Oh, and he's just adorable!

Yeah! I'm glad he's on the "going home soon" side and the docs are feeling good. I'm sure it is stressful that his weight is fluctuating... as if you're not stressed and exhausted enough! But it sounds like good news and here's hoping you can be home, ready for some calm bonding, in the next few days.

my thoughts are often with you - I am so happy to hear you are closer to the end of this ordeal! Don't worry ab the weight - it's heartening to hear that he's strong enough for breastfeeding, breathing w/o assistance, etc, and functioning signs are so much more important than those other stats...

Take care, and i'm so hoping to hear from you that you're home next update!

That's great news that he has moved to the "going home" side of the room.
