Andrew had a pretty good week overall. There were some downs but as they say here it is all part of the NICU. If I hear "Two steps forward and one step back" one more time I may scream. I think once we get out of this two pound area and he hits three pounds he will be stronger and not have as many issues. At least in my humble medical opinion.
One of the nice things the NICU does is have some group things for the moms to do. For example every Thursday at 2:00 they have scrap booking in the conference room. I have been able to make some really great new friends. Being surrounded by families at the NICU and the Ronald McDonald house makes you feel like what your going through is normal because everybody else is too. If it wasn't for that I don't think I would handle this as well. Of course my husband is my strength and rock so he keeps me going too.
Our little guy!
