Wyatt the Protector
Wyatt the Kisser
Annabelle is finally getting some food! She is gradually working her way back up to full feeds...increasing each feed by 10ml. So far, she is at 40ml. Our goal is 70ml so by tomorrow morning she should be at full feeds. Scott and I have "worked" the g-tube today. It's really not that difficult and burping her is a cinch! She did very well with the pain and hasn't needed anything other than tylenol since middle of the night. She is quite a fighter! (I imagine this pain level is nothing compared to what she's already experienced though.)
We were told again this morning to plan on going home Monday or Tuesday (the latest). Oh, we are so ready to get home! Wyatt heard us talking about going home the other week and said "we are never going to get out of this place"! It was so funny. We were very glad to tell him today that in just a few days we will be home as a family. He's asked if we could all sleep together. I don't know about that one but I am sure we'll have lots of cuddle time amongst the 4 of us.
Today was a beautiful Saturday in Charleston. One of Scott's good friends, Hap, came to visit. My daddy was here for a few days again to help with Wyatt (huge blessing) and all of us had a nice lunch outside. It will be so wonderful when Annabelle can join us. It won't be long!
Annabelle is now up one pound and 1/2 an ounce since birth! She weighed 8 lb 4.5 oz this evening. She is so alert and thoroughly enjoys her hospital mobile. (I guess I will be making a trip to the store for one. I didn't even think to get her one since Wyatt rarely paid any attention to his.) Our hearts are so full and we are so blessed!
Enjoy the pictures of our Princess! Afterall, her Father is the King of Kings!
