Jimmie is truckin right along. I love how Rachael is starting to sound like a normal Mom with normal complaints. Today she came into the studio to teach a class and was glad to get away from Jimmie for a bit. He was being very grumpy and gassy and in her words, "driving me crazy!" (-: She left him with 3 different medical staff in the NICU who were doting on him and trying to get him in a better mood. Rachael is quite sure he is very spoiled. LOL! He has many people who love him in the NICU and will hold him and coo over him every chance they get. He's gonna love having mommy 24 hours a day when he gets home and mommy will LOVE IT too, but will probably miss all of the help she gets in the NICU. 0-:
Jimmie did good with his feedings today. It's hard to know how much he's getting when he nurses though. They had been supplementing him half a feeding in the NG tube when he nursed. Now since the tube is gone we are anxious to see him still gaining weight. Rachael nurses him 3 or 4 times a day. If his weight gain tapers off over the next few days Rachael may have to resort to more bottles. Pray that he keeps gaining. We want the nursing to work out for Jimmie and Rachael.
This evening right after Rachael gave Jimmie his vitamens he puked it all back up- everywhere! Rach says she's sure those vitamens taste pretty nasty judging by the smell that she is now wearing. Ewwww
Still no going home date. I'll be shouting it to the heavens as soon as I know. (-:
