That's right, Q3 was started again today and we've had 3 full feeds now and no barfing! It seems Hope is tolerating the feeds and is doing so well. She's been sleeping more, this is a sign that she's not too uncomfortable from the feeds. I'm hoping I can get some sleep tonight, I worry so much about her barfing that I jump up at every sound she makes. I'll have to get a nap tomorrow at some point to make up for it.
The IV is still holding strong and we have only 5 days left of the antibiotic. I'm praying the IV line will hold out until the end and she won't have to get another one put in. She doesn't get poked as often now and I would prefer that it stays that way. She receives her blood thinner in her thigh twice a day, and her blood is drawn twice a week. It's much better than the days they took her blood sugars every hour!
We spent a lot of time at the hospital this weekend. Sadie does pretty well, but seems to hit a wall around the 6th hour of hospital visiting. I'm surprised she makes it that long, I think watching Curious George helps! It was incredible to sleep in my bed for the last two nights. I will sure miss it as I climb onto the plastic mattress here tonight. The doctor is still planning to send Hope home on the weekend, not sure if it would be Saturday or Sunday. The antibiotics end on the 26th, but I'm not sure if she has to receive all 3 doses that day or not. If I tell myself we're leaving on Monday morning, it will make anything earlier seem like a dream.
Thank you for praying for Hope and her feeds, it's clearly making an impact and we're thrilled to see her receiving full feeds!
