Sorry I've been just popping in and out lately. I get internet on my phone but it's spotty at the hospital so I've been trying to check the board in between rounds with Natalie.

I have had a lovely case of mastitis which is only cured by nursing so I've been trying to be at the nicu for 2 feedings a day. I can't do 2 feedings in a row though so that means an hour drive down, 30min to feed, stay an hour, then 5hrs of nothing until I can feed her again. She is a great nurser, not so keen on bottles. She has finally made it to stage 2 which means 2 feedings by mouth per shift. They think she may have reflux as she keeps desating after she eats, but it's not too bad.

She's not on anything else, just the feeding tube. She will be 3wks tomorrow and still no bath. Her umbilical cord finally fell off on Monday but there was still some pieces left. Today they are going to burn it so it will seal up since it's being wierd. She is up to 4lb11oz so getting big. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she'll be home in less than 2wks. The policies here are different than they used to be so I have to just wait for everything.

I don't have any new pics except what's in my sig.

Yay! So glad that she's doing well!! And wow on your drive and with the nursing. Grapefruit seed extract is great for that also. I used to get it ALL THE TIME w/ my third. I never had to take antibiotics for it once I figured out that GSE did the trick..

Thanks for the update, I'm glad you are doing well!
