…is strange. It goes really slowly, but there doesn’t seem to be enough if it to get everything done. Between trying to pump every 2-3 hours, visit the nicu, get vitals checks, meet with doctors(mine and her’s), attempt to sleep, shower every once in awhile, and shuffle to the bathroom…the day is gone before I’ve gotten ready for it. Updates may be few and far between until I’m released, but no news will almost always mean good news.
Olivia Moonpie is doing beautifully. She’s getting banked breastmilk and tolerating it well. She’s still on the CPAP, but at room air levels and can tolerate very short times off of it. She is on uv light for her bilirubin, but seems to enjoy wearing her little purple eye mask and has been sound asleep everytime I’ve been to see her.
I’m a little slower to recover from our ordeal. The past few months have really drained my reserves. I pushed myself a little to hard yesterday and am feeling it today.
Internet service here is sketchy at best. I’ve actually been doing all of the updates from the iPhone meaning a lot of one finger typing. Photos will have to wait until I get home to my reliable wi-fi. It will be worth the wait, I promise. She’s a cutie!
Shannon and I are so thankful for all of your support and good wishes. It means the world to us to know Olivia Moonpie has such a fantastic cheering section. Until she’s home with us, safe and sound, she needs all the positive energy she can get.
