An update from the 4th floor NICUDear Friends,
Just so you all know - My youngest daughter is a motherfucking SUPERSTAR!! I suppose that mommies shouldn't use those kinda words, but I'm very happy tonight, so bite my ass. My 31 weeker ( now 32 weeks) has gained 4 ounces over the last 36 hours. She has also gone to 2 nipple feedings a day and they took off her temp and pulse/oxy. leads today. Like I said - A superstar.
I'm doing good too. Thanks for all the emails. I'm not in much pain anymore. I'm taking pills about 3 times a day and it's been knocking out the pain. I took myself off driving restriction yesterday, because all it was doing was pissing me off. I hated having to be driven everywhere - I felt like I was 15 all over again. I go to the Dr tomorrow for a follow up and we'll see what she has to say. I'm really not happy about having to go back to that fucking floor again( My Dr's office is on the high risk floor that I was on) And yes, C, I was at Methodist.
Grace is awesome. She's been spending time with Crazy Aunt and my SIL, Jamie. A big THANK YOU goes out to them. They've been a HUGE help.It seems likeGracie has just grown up overnight. Her words have gotten better and I can tell she understands what we're saying to her eventhough acts like she doesn't. Her Daddy took her to get a new kitten yesterday so she's very happy. She's been carrying him around all day. He puts up with it and that what we wanted. A cat that would like her. Our other fat fur balls don't like her much at all.
I can't wait for her to see the baby. It's killing me. I hate that she can't go back and see Faith. We've shown her what we've taped so far ( right after her birth, the 1st time we held her, her first bath, ect) and Grace just says " Thats my mama". It's gotta be hard for a 2 yr old to understand.
Well, thats all for now. I fucking beat.
