Things are going a lot better today. Besides adding in 3 ng-feeds, a few dressing changes and 2 medications - I feel I am doing the normal baby routine of eat-cry-sleep eat-sleep-cry which most of you are familiar with. I start the day with an intention to do one thing like wash my face and manage to do it around 4pm (I hope, I haven't done it yet).
Wren is having a long sleep this afternoon and I had a nap which makes for great deal of happiness all round.
Thankyou for all the encouragment after my meltdown yesterday. I appreciate it - especially the reassurance that I am not doing too badly with my ng-tube fumblings. Today we have not had a failed feeding (other than a couple of episodes of spitting up half of what I gave him).
Tomorrow we have our first weekly checkup at Children's Hospital. I have a 9.30am at the Cardiac Surgery Clinic with a RN. She will do wound-care, weight and general vitals as well as check on his overall progress. Fingers crossed for a healthy looking baby and good weight gain.
