Week 6

Precious N
Sleeping R

Been up since 3 am to pump, then Max woke up so just a few quick highlights.

Had 6 week post partum today. Dr. P was back. Had nice chat. Down 40 lbs in 6 weeks.

Got a lot of time at the hospital today. Was able to see and talk to doc about both kids. Ray probably coming home next week. Running a 24 hour monitoring test tomorrow and will come up with plan to get him home. Have breast fed Ray 3 days in a row. Day's 1 and 3 went well. Day 2 was a disaster, but I think I know why, but too tired to get into details. Got to cuddle care Nora skin to skin today with orders that I'm allowed to do so with precautions. It was great for us both. Nora had appt. with OT about feeding today. She didn't wake up so eval wasn't done, but while OT was holding her, I started talking to her and she turned right to where I was sitting openned her eyes and smiled. It was so beautiful to know that she recognized me and my voice that I almost cried.

Came home today with Shadow sick with puke everywhere. Came home yesterday after a busy non stop day to Max puking all over me, him, the kitchen rug/floor. Think Shadow has vertigo again and she is doing better since I forced an anti nausea pill down her throat. Think Max had mild heat stroke/was in the sun too much yesterday. He was fine after he puked and all day today.

Beautiful, beautiful pictures of both the angel-babies! Love Nora's reddish curls! I'm so happy that they are both doing so well.

WOW on 40 lbs. down, too! :):)

Love, Laura

I was just going to say the same thing as Nancy....what a beautiful little girl! And is that red hair? Ray is also very beautiful and sound like he is doing so well!

Oh Deb, they are both just gorgeous babes! I'm so happy you'll have at least Ray home next week, and I'll bet Nora won't be too far behind.
