Jaxon has been home since Sunday night. We are happy to report he has NOT thrown up (knock on wood) at all so far. He's tried a few times, but nothing has actually come up. His overnight pump-feeds are working well, and he's taking about half his day-time bottles by mouth. He weighed 6lbs, 11.5oz on Monday when the nurse visited. He'll see the nurse again on Thursday here at home, and the pediatrician on Friday. He'll re-visit the g.i. and pulmonary specialists the 3rd week of November. We'll see if we can wein him off the Reglan and O2 at that time (a.k.a. nightime O2 only).
The hospitalization has really helped him. Our family can function a little easier now. I say this right after the babies had meltdowns this evening and Jason almost pulled his hair out :) Auntie Rachel has really helped by being our nanny. She's been working out of our house so she can deal with Brady while I'm caring for Jax. I'm actually finding the time to have quality time with each baby now compared to the first time Jax was home. Life is still crazy in the house...but a different crazy this time around.
This is what I came downstairs to on Sunday.
Jason was discussing the game of football to his son.
Jay and Brady were having a good time on the couch wearing their Steelers gear.
(For the record, I had a Packers sweatshirt on!)
Jaxon working on his neck muscles today - he's a real baby!
Auntie Rachel tried to get a shot of them together today...but they wanted to wiggle!!
