You know that feeling you get when you have an early flight and get up at 3am? I have that feeling most of the time now, I believe it's called lack of sleep. I'm just finishing up Hope's 5am feed and will be able to head back to bed until Hope or Sadie wake up or the 8am feed arrives.
Yesterday was much better than Saturday, no throwing up at all! It appears the problem was 100% the incorrect mixture of formula and breast milk. She was receiving almost 8x as much formula as she was supposed to! We still find that Hope can be quite gassy and unable to burp. We can use a syringe to pull air out of her feeding tube, but can't seem to stop the gas from returning.
I've also realized that I'm not very good at administering Hope's injections. It seems that every time Shawn or I give them, she's bruising. As a result, we're running out of space on her tiny legs. The injection can not be given where there is a bruise. Any tips from the nurses out there??
Just a short update, I need to get to bed!
