Here's a quick update on us. We are living at the hospital. Literally. Hod an I are sleeping on an air mattress supported by couch cushions and a few foam pads. This allows me to go and feed #1 at all sorts of odd hours of the night. It's a mixed blessing.
#1 will be able to come home once she can gain weight by eating orally. She currently has a feeding tube. This is because she couldn't eat enough to give her enough energy to eat enough, to give her enough energy to eat enough... and so on.
Because #1 is so tired, it takes her quite a while to eat. As a result, I get to sleep for 90 min intervals. This results in a very tired Paily.
But we have made some new friends in the NICU. And we love some of #1's nurses. And someday, I'll be able to sleep in my bed again.
Thanks for caring!
Oh, and just so you can see a face... Here is #1. This picture was taken when she was 4 days old.
