Sleepless in Asheville
We are in Transition as of Tuesday night are loving being with our little boy. We feel like we have a new found freedom. It kind of feels like hanging out in our dorm room, just with a baby and a lot less sleep, but same amount of naps. We couldn't be more thrilled to be in the transition part of the NICU and to be rooming in with Wesley. Our nurse hooked us up with the big corner room that is usually for twins & triplets so we have room if you want to come and visit. As we were unpacking into our room Wesley sneezed and I jumped. I totally forgot that he was in there. We have never been anywhere alone with him and he is almost 3 months old. The first night I was nervous and excited at the same time. I laid down to go to sleep and awoke at every noise not knowing what I should do. We sleep a little. A nurse comes in every three hours to check him and he eats. He is either breast-feeding, eating from a bottle, or a tube every feeding and doing great. He is up to 2 ounces every 3 hours. One nice thing about transition is that we can sleep through a feeding if we want to and let the nurse do it. I am excited to have this time to learn his sounds and needs before we take him home so I will be a little less of a nervous wreck if that is possible. I will post some pictures later, I don;t have my camera with me. We are doing great a Wesley is awesome. Please continue to pray for:
His breathing and respiratory care
His eating, that he would continue to do well and have his tubed removed
