Well I found the envelopes I needed for the Christmas cards. They were hiding in plain sight. Sigh … Now I need a 4 x 6 envelope. Anyone know where they are in this office???
I am producing a whopping 2 ounces of milk per day. Woohoo! Oy! It’s a good thing Sarah is on formula or she’d be starving like Christopher was by this age. While I applaud the nurses for encouraging me to continue to try to breast feed, had I been them I would have also suggested supplementing Christopher with formula. It would have saved both of us a LOT OF F*CKING GRIEF!!! Not that I have an opinion on the matter or anything. Sarah is a much happier baby who sleeps when she is supposed to because she has a full tummy. She gets as much milk as mommy will produce and then gets the rest from formula.
Sarah’s biliruben count is down and we go in for her to give more blood on Friday. Her weight has also bounced back and is now on the upswing and this is great! Sarah should be off of that funny biliruben “blanket” this weekend.
I seem to be doing better than most people expect. Two friends who had c-sections said that I am doing better than they were at the point they saw me. I walked one to the NICU the day after the surgery and she was amazed that I was walking that well. Well I felt a hell of a lot better than I felt on the day of the surgery, that’s for sure! Besides I was on percoset! Then another friend visited me at home on Monday and she was really amazed. I don’t know if it’s me or them but I don’t feel all that bad. It’s hard to sneeze, cough, laugh and blow my nose and I get tired faster but if I pace myself it all seems to work out.
Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
