Well as you can tell we are not home yet, and will not be going home for a few more days. Bonnie is worried about the feeding situation and feels it would be too hard on us as parents to go home like this, we agree. Teagan is taking a long time to eat a feed and an even harder time keeping them down. He is suppose to eat 60cc every three hours, well he is eating 60cc and it takes him two hours to eat it and within that last hour he throws it all up. We believe it is acid reflex, which lots of babies get, but for him none of the medicines have helped yet and not only is he trowing up the protagen, but also bile. All this causes constipation and pain. I just can't believe all the things these little sweetHEARTs have to go through, not only heart stuff, but these crappy newborn things too. So today they have made some adjustments and we hope they help. Today I gave my first shot at 7 this morning I was still kind of sleepy, but I just prayed for strength and steady hands. I did it, it was not fun, but if it will help my son I will do it. We have an ECHO sometime today and we hope to see that the clot hasn't moved or gotten bigger, maybe even smaller God willing.
Attitude is everything. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, because life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain.
