She got a bath today, the first one I got to see!! She HATED it, but that is because the nurse was a bit rough... only because the other nurses had been so gentle that they hadnt cleaned her well... she was getting VERY VERY stinky... but I thought it was rude to say that about my own baby!! Once she settled down I dressed her up in a precious shirt that my friend Tara made for her! She got so many compliments, seriously, random parents came over talking about how pretty she was and how cute her outfit was!!
Tonight they are letting the TPN run out (vitamin supplement) and then they can take the PICC line out on monday and the morphine and other medications will have to be given orally..
Im so proud of her! I am still worried about her right eye... it hardly opens ,,, no one else seems to be worried, but I dont want the left eye overcompensating for the right eye! We also have to really start workin on sucking techniques- she is a stubborn little mama! But I talk to her and tell her that when she is ready to come home she has to know how to suck breath and swallow! I practice when Im laying with her, but I hardly know what Im doing!
Other than all that, I am trying to finish school, I was given choices: drop, take the grades I had before I had the baby and use that as my final grade, OR makeup homeworks and turn them in. its about 4 in each class... and thats what I am gonna do! or TRy!
All these need to be done before Tuesday or Thursday! eek! I worked on a few while the nurse did Lillis assessments and she slept. Then Lil and I got a recliner and her soft green blankey and a big blanket for me and layed ourself out and got nice and cozy for several hours! (Til pumping time again)...
Wish Us Luck with Lilli's sucking therapy so she can be free of tubes and just on a bottle!
Then we need her lungs to be pumpin good! and her splean to be okay... they are coming to look at it monday... Ill keep you updated- lord knows this info changes each day!!
God Bless You All for supporting me. We are 2 VERY lucky Ladies
