Four Weeks Old
No post yesterday ... I was EXHAUSTED! I decided on Saturday night that I wanted Joshua home and the way I was going to speed it along was by going to the hospital 3 times a day and breastfeeding Joshua. Which I did for 2 days ... the 0900 feed, the 1500 feed and the 2100 feed. (The doctor's orders are for alternating breast/bottle and gavage feeds). Anyway, I dragged myself into the hospital last night to feed Joshua and got a "lecture" from one of the nurses. She said that it'll be a few more weeks and that I need to sleep and not push myself. She also told me to sleep all night tonight and not bother to pump in the middle and just rest. So that's what I did. I just REALLY REALLY REALLY want Joshua to come home ... but he's not ready so I might as well pace myself ... this is a mararthon and not a sprint. WE CAN DO THIS!
Grandma V is back for a few days! Woohoo! Matt and Joel have been playing bubble hockey and shovelling sidewalks (we had a huge dump of snow this week), and coloring and enjoying eachother.
PS. Joshua had a heart murmer which has now disappeared! AND the head ultrasound which was done last week is perfect!
