So we hung with our little guy until mid-afternoon then came home. And took a long family nap! It was lovely! Then Mr.Pate fixed me some dinner and we went up to feed griffin.
I am pumping every three hours, so that takes up a lot of our time too.
Today has drug by so slowly!! We got up and went to feed Griffin, had breakfast, came home to pump, went to church to work for a bit, ran some errands, came back home to pump, went to feed the boy, took a walk, watched some tv, pumped, dinner, a nap, and now we are headed back up there. Time
Griffin is doing great! He passed his first hearing test. He will have to have one more too. With the antibiotic he is on, there is a risk of hearing damage. So far so good- be praying for that!
He is on a three hour schedule for eating, so we try to make it to three of those a day. We are trying to breastfeed, and so far we have had three pretty successful attempts! Since he was introduced to a bottle first, nursing is harder for him. But he is doing great.
Maybe soon I will update on the emotional side of it all, but it is hard to out into words the roller coaster I am on.
One thing is for sure- my husband is the most amazing person ever. I am so thankful for his care and guidance right now. The Lord is using him to carry me right now. I am blessed.
