Look who's 2 weeks old now! I can't believe it. He's still hanging out in the NICU. He's up to 7 pounds 6 ounces. They had been feeding him small amounts of breast milk, raising it by 5 cc every other feeding in addition to what he's getting in the IV, but the other day he had a set back and threw up so they stopped the feedings for 24 hours. He was so mad about that. He just wants to eat. Then they started him back up with a measley 5 cc of breast milk again, slowly working up. Last night he was up to 25 cc. You can tell he just wants more. His bowels are still not fully on line, so we have no idea when he will be able to come home. Hopefully soon! I gave him lots of kisses to tide him over till today when we go back. Brittany sure has been a good mamma to him. I got lucky with her as my daughter in law.
Chad called me when he got to Atlanta....after spending 12 hours on a plane and still not reaching his destination. The group of boys ended up spending the night in a hotel, then going back up to the airport to wait for a bus that was suppose to take him to the base. They had been waiting all day for the bus when I talked to him. He was suppose to be able to call home for a quick I made it here safely kind of thing, but we still havent heard anything. Am I allowed to be worried yet??? As for sending goody packages, I think I'll take Nicole's advice and not send anything until I know he won't get reemed for it. He sure doesn't need added stress at boot camp.
I wanted to thank all of my blog readers. I appreciate that you are interested in my life enough to keep coming back everyday and I really appreciate the comments that show support, give advise, or just make me feel good and lets me know your here so I don't feel like I'm talking to myself. I love reading them. This blogging world is an amazing thing. Thank you! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Mount Laundry is feeling neglected here in the George house, so I better attend to it today before it takes over. Not exactly fun and exciting, but needs to be done none the less. Any tips for making laundy fun? or at least interesting? :o)
