hi ladies,
well they are sending me home sometime today, i can hang around here in the room as long as i want but i have to leave today because i haven't had a fever since the day i delivered they have no viable medical reason to keep me here. i commented to the doctor this morning that came in the room about 630 that im still in alot of pain with my belly/uterine area...as in taking 2 percocet every 4 hours doesn't always cut it it just makes me sleepy. he said they won't send me home with percocet because i had a normal vaginal delivery but they will give me ibuprofen which doesn't work for me so im asking to see the doc that delivered me and i'll talk to him because i really really hurt alot. he said that going through labor and pushing does a number to the tummy, which im sure it does but i can't even touch my stomach without it hurting so im not sure what to think.

kristopher is doing about the same, he's up to 2.8lbs, they started feeding him yesterday a little bit, donor breastmilk because im having trouble producing. he has jaundice so they have the special light and little eye mask on him. his echocardiogram came back good for being 0 days old when they did it. they are trying to wean him off the oxygen slowly and see if he can breathe on his own but he still needs alot of help with that so i don't want that happening unless the doctor is 100% comfortable doing that and she has told me since wednesday that she is not so we told them last night not to do that just yet. i had a pic of him with the little mask on but it didn't save on my phone and we aren't putting pics up on facebook yet until his big brothers meet him but i'm heading down to see him in an hour or so so i'll take a couple more and put them up here when i get back to the room. im probably going to stay here most of the day today so i'll be off and on here alot

I'm glad to hear that things are steady for him. And hopefully he can come off the oxygen soon. And yay for gaining a couple of ounces!! I know you aren't ready/wanting to be discharged. Will you be able to visit him anytime you want there? Or do they have certain hours? Thank you for updating us and I can't wait to see more pics! Congrats, mama!

So glad to hear he is improving! I'm sorry you're in pain, considering I've never been through labor I don't have any advice for you. Do they have Kristopher on CPAP or is he intubated? Keep us posted!!

daddy and i have access to him at all times, we can stay in his room overnight if we want to which we will take turns doing as theres only one couch. he's intubated. i can stay as long as i want up to midnight today if i want so im gonna stay throughout the day, a friend of ours had a preemie here and shes got a couple nurses that work in nicu coming to meet me today so we are gonna hang out today. plus i have family coming in and out and once im home..well we are staying at my mil's tonight and tomorrow night because we will have our other two boys so she can help us with them since i can barely move still. but im showering now and then going to see him so i'll bring back pictures!

Have been wondering about you guys. I'm happy to read your update and yay for the couple ounce weight gain! It all counts!
I remember having to leave my last born in the ICU and how incredibly hard it was. I cried my eyes out. He only ended up staying a week but leaving was tough. (((hugs to you))). Just have comfort knowing that he is being taken care of in the best place possible for him.

Are you guys far from the hospital? Will you be able to go daily?
How did your SO react meeting your little guy for the first time?

Sorry, just saw your update. He is so beautiful .

With Bradley's birth my belly hurt so bad from the days of straight contractions.. it took a good week before I coul sit and stan without assistance.. and I had vaginal birth. Id opted out of pain meds though.

I hope Kristopher continues doing well and you continue to heal. Will be searching for updates.
