Well- yesterday Sam was a bit constipated and weighed in at 2 lbs 5.2 ozs. Today, Sam is not as constipated and weighs in at 2 lbs 4.5 ozs. I guess he had quite a poopy diaper for the night shift. So glad I didn’t have to change that one!
Today was another quite/good day for Sam. The highlight of the day for me was the fact that I drove myself to the hospital! I feel so free! I also got to spend as much time with Sam as I wanted. I got to leave when i wanted, and I even got to run an errand afterwords without feeling guilty. Its the little things.
Sam is still doing great. I think tomorrow we might try to do a cannula sprint while I hold him. The idea is he has better oxygen saturation when I am holding him, so it is the perfect time to try taking him off CPAP. He is also now back to getting 5 MLs of milk every three hours, and the hope is to just keep increasing his intake every feed.
And now for my (and your) moment of zen:
