Well another weekend has come and gone. I just love the weekends down here, when Lindsay's down and we can all be together. We had a fun night out last night. We went out for a casual dinner at the pub in the Landmark Inn. The food was quite good, and not to expensive, and the homemade dessert was excellent. Lindsay has decided that she needs some extra calories. We figured it out, and she's burning an extra 1200-1400 calories a day by pumping. Needless to say she's always hungry and can't seem to gain any weight no matter how much she's eating. Anyway that dessert and the one she had this afternoon should help. We bumped into our friends Ben and Joe last night at the restaurante. This morning we met up with Ben, his wife Kim and their kids for breakfast. Thanks again to them for a wonderful breakfast. Their kids are a lot of fun, it makes me even more excited to get Willow out of the NICU and home. I can't wait to be able to take her around where ever we go.
Willow had another great day. Chuck and Judy came down this morning for a visit. Judy was able to hold Willow for the first time. They both did very well during there time together. Chuck still hasn't been able to hold Willow, but he is definatly going to get his turn next time they come down.
Willow is 3 lbs. 9 oz. today, so she lost a half an ounce from yesterday. They are now giving her 22ml of milk with each feeding. It won't be long now and she will hopefully be up to full feedings. She's still performing very well on the cannula. So far there is no need to go back to the CPAP. Willow is now the NICU veteran. We were looking around today and there aren't any other baby's that have been there longer. I'm not sure how to feel about this, especially considering we still have another 6-7 weeks left. I guess I'm just happy she's doing so well and I won't really worry about anything else. It'll be another week down here by myself. Time goes pretty quickly though. With all the Willow visits I do in a day, it doesn't seem to leave much time for other stuff. I do have to do the taxes at some point this week. Hopefully they go nice and smoothly. Hope you all have a good Monday.
This blog follows the adventures of Lindsay, Josh and Willow Jenson. It started in 2008 as my pregnancy blog, then when our daughter was born 14 weeks early in February 2009 it morphed into a medical blog as she spent her first 105 days in the NICU. Now, thankfully, it's basically a run-of-the-mill new parent blog.
