Oh Anna! I so wish I lived closer to you. I would help you clean your house and feed you yummy meals. Just talking to you on the phone after Addison's birth helped me SO much. I wish I could do the same.

You are so unbelievably strong. Things are looking up and before you know it he'll be in your arms and on your breast.

Oh honey you are SO close. I bet he will be home within days. That feeding amount, being on room air, not bradying with being stimulated- all such good news! I cant wait to read the homecoming announcement!

I'm so glad to hear you're getting a little help. That is such a relief as I wish I could help take care of you myself.

I'm glad you're able to pump and feed him and the LLL people found some good things to push the hospital to give him something other than bottles.

It really sounds like your boy will be home with you soon. I wish it could be today! And I hope you can switch over to breast feeding full time so you don't have to pump anymore and that it is a smooth transition.

Yeah I hope everything went well yesterday! Hope the pain is getting easier. How are you boobulas? Are they still sore or are they doing much better now?

I don't want to steal any of Anna's thunder by posting details, but if a few little tidbits will appease the crowds, I can tell you the following:

They were released to go home today. They are working on breastfeeding. Her mom is now here in town. We have meal deliveries starting up this weekend. She has the contact info to an awesome LC in the area. A doula friend visited her last night and told me how strong a mama she is!

I think all the well wishes are helping a whole lot!
