Day 36




We had a wee set back last night ... Joshua had 2 desats in which he needed a little help to get out (this is when his oxygen saturations drop in his blood). Joshua hasn't had one of those in a week (except for when he choked on the vitamins on Saturday). In order to go home he can't be having desats anymore, and he has to pass a carseat test (1 and a half hours in the carseat with no desats or apnea (quitting breathing) or bradycardias (heart rate slowing dangerously low). We're hoping he'll have his carseat test on thursday (he has to be off caffienne for 24 hours and his last dose is tommorrow morning). If he passes that then I can come and stay at the hospital and breastfeed him for every feed (except two because he needs two bottles a day with some extra calories to help him keep his weight up) and then we can GO HOME! I can't wait. I just want him home. I want my life back ... I want to be at home with Joel and Joshua, and cook supper and take care of my family and scrapbook. Did I mention scrapbook? I miss it sooooooooo much.

We miss you too, but we love that you have kept us up on Joshua's progress. He looks so wonderful and healthy, and you have been so patient and such a great mom. Hang in there sweetie, we are all pulling for you and praying for you. Love and hugs.
