Daily life

Not going to lie, it has been crazy around here since we have been home. Between feeding Addie, pumping, thawing out breast milk, then fortifying it, administering medications, charting everything, trying to get Ellie to nap and go to sleep it seems like there is never a break. I am so glad my mom is here to help because I am not sure how I would get it all done. I think it would be hard enough with 2 kids, but with the extra things Addie requires, it makes for a full day never stopping. I am sure we will get the hang of it soon, but it sure seems like a lot right now. Addie had her first follow up this morning with Dr. Ikemba, her cardiologist. It was a full morning, with not much sleep for our house last night. We were at the Medical City ER with Ellie. She dislocated her elbow at about 11 last night and we didnt get home until 1:30. Anyway, we left at 7:30 this morning and didn't get home until noon. Addie got measured, had labs, an x-ray, an EKG, and an ECHO. All of which were normal. Yay! She is 7 lbs 15 oz now, which is awesome! They like these babies to gain 20 grams a day and she is averaging 34. Dr. Ikemba said she looks great, and the only thing they changed was the volume of each feed to 55 ml. Addie is such a good baby and seems content wherever she is....in someone's arms, in her nap nanny, in her bassinet....wherever. All in all, it is great to be home!
