We are going to stay in the hospital for at least one more day. The mouthwash was too numbing, but the tylenol seemed to help. We also have faster flowing silicone nipples now and his feedings were better since midnight. He did lose 1 ounce, which isn't surprising. Hopefully he can start eating stronger to avoid the IV. It it goes well, we will come home tomorrow.
Hardly any new blisters so either his skin is stronger or keeping him cool is working. All his wounds seem to be healing well.
His umbilical cord was really starting to smell bad and the doc was nice enough to snip that off this morning.
Dad didn't well at helping mom out and slept a bit too long. Our goal is to get mom a few naps and for Dad to get to bed earlier. Evenings are always the worst as we are very tired with little patience.
Abby wants less and less to do with us and it will be a slow process bonding with her again when we finally get the time. This is very hard for us to choose between our children.
All we can do is set our sights on the only constant thing in our lives and that is God. It's not our amazing faith, but that we have faith in an amazing God.
Stu, Tashia, Abby and James
