I will be soooooooooooooooooooooooooo dissapointed if they keep him another 24 hours if he doesnt gain more than 30 grams. Trying to think positive! He is in with the nurses right now doing a 1 hour preemie car seat test hooked up the the oxygen monitors and heart monitors.

We are home and exhausted lol... They almost didn't let us leave, not happy with his small weight losses and gains since they took him off high calorie formula. However they let us go home on the condition I bring him back in tomorrow morning to be weighed again and have a public health nurse come every few days in our home to weigh him in between his weekly pediatrician appointments. We came home then drove out to my parents. Mom babysat while we went to Walmart to get his formula now that they decided to keep him on the similac advance for now. We also needed to get his iron prescription filled as his iron is low and he takes a liquid iron twice a day. Also got some odds and ends. Spent time with my parents then came back home. My cousin dropped in to meet him for the first time. I then took a 2 hour nap because I had less than 3 broken up hours the night before and I was exhausted!!! Then hubby, Xavier and the dog and I spent quality time together and I've been doing some unpacking and organizing and still have a long ways to go. I bought the concentrated kind of formula. Tonight around might night I started sterilizing bottles and then mixed the formula. What a chore that is. Going to take some getting used to! I was spoiled with ready to feed at the hospital lol. Just waiting for the 2am feed then going to bed. 2am feed, 5am feed and 8am feed all before we leave to be at the hospital for 9am. Ugh, also got to find time to pump and shower in there. I forsee no sleep for meeeeee lol... All in all, it feels weird to be home but happy!

You are one busy lady! So happy that you all are home. Hope you're able to get settled into a system in no time. It seems Xavier is doing very well all things considered! Good for you, little guy!
