Thanks for thinking of us! We've been busy these last few days settling into a routine of visiting DS in the nursery and fitting in expressing, housework etc. I have to sort out a new cleaner!
DS has made some really good improvements, he pulled out his tube for the ventilator, the cheeky boy, but did well on Cpap after that which is now being weaned, and the PDA has closed after the treatment with ibuprofen. He's been intolerant of feeds so only getting tiny amounts but the IV nutrition is working as he's put on a good amount of weight, he's 1397g today! The doctors were surprised at how much he's put on an wondered if the initial birth weight was not accurate.
I'm feeling a lot better, still get anxious at times but not so bad as I was. We put an announcement on Facebook which I was initially hesitant about but all the lovely comments were so nice. Oh and we got a cuddle finally, once he was on the Cpap. It was so lovely to hold him. DP and I had a nice lunch out in Subiaco today to celebrate DS reaching one week old.
Still a long road to go but I am feeling quite positive right now with his progress.
