I know day 4 isn't done yet, but I had a minute so I thought I'd better update:
*I got to talk to his nutritionist today and she went over all of his calorie counts and intake/fluids. She is very pleased. He has even gained a few kilos since we've been here. He is getting more than enough calories with the 3 bottles and the meals. She thinks we are close to dropping down to 2 bottles. If/when we do that, we'll have to figure out ways during the day to get water, juice, etc. in him to make sure he gets enough fluid. The thought of only 2 bottles a day makes me giddy. I mean seriously. That means I will be washing fewer bottles and I'm not complaining here, but I've (I meaning me, kory, and our moms) have been washing bottles for 2 1/2 years!!! And those crazy bottles we have to use have 5 parts each!!!! Plus the bottle we use to mix up the pedia sure and thickner!!! AHHHHHHH!!!
*Speaking of fluids, they have made a change with his drinking during meals. They were trying the honey bear cup, but today decided to switch to a little tiny cup. Like a medicine cup. They said he did much better with it when they tested it out so she wants to switch to it all the time. They said he was more willing to GO to the cup and accept it whereas he was still really aversive to taking the straw honey bear thing. Fine with me. Whatever works. Hopefully he'll start taking more and more fluids during his meals and will depend less on getting them outside of meals.
*He for sure is congested. He has is coughing right now as he naps and I feel bad for him. He acts totally fine and I really think it started out as allergies and the congestion stuck around long enough to settle into a cough. The attending physician started him on some allergy meds last night so hopefully they will stop any more congestion and we can get rid of it soon. Poor coughing baby. I hate it for him. And I haven't told him yet, but he's supposed to get his flu shot today!
*He slept ALL night in his bed!!! That means I only dealt with the normal waking up of myself trying to stay comfy (and looking at the clock to see how late it was to see how long he'd stayed in his bed!) YEAH!! Hopefully he'll sleep good tonight too, but we gotta get rid of this cough!
*The highlight of today will be when Kory gets here. We are excited to see him and I'm looking forward to having a little back up around here! :)
