Last night was spent in remembering everything we went through a month before. This time last month we were driving to hospital. This time last month they had whisked the small son to the incubator and were working over him. This time last month he was being transfered to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
We are so thankful that our small son is doing so well four weeks out. His biggest problem seems to be those terrible hiccups, garment changes, and waking up to realize that someone is not holding him on their shoulder. But he is starting to notice his world a little more and hopefully soon we’ll have Interactive Baby instead of just Eat-Cry-Sleep-Poop Baby.
Mom is having difficulties with small son’s latch but I don’t intend for this to be a breastfeeding blog so I will just say that while things are going back and forth, we haven’t given up yet and hopefully it will all work out in the end. I’m going to try to get another appointment this week with a lactation consultant. Troy’s been really supportive throughout the whole breastfeeding ordeal so uber-kudos to him as well as all my friends and family who have given me emotional support during it as well. Who knew something so ‘natural’ could be such a hurdle. I couldn’t have kept going this long without all of you who have encouraged me. THANK YOU.
