TWO POUNDS!

TWO POUNDS!

They gave him the Lasix last night so we expected him to lose, but he didn't. He hit 2 lbs today!

*dances around*


Of course, most of the rest of it was less than exciting today. She says he's a bit touchy (I would be, too.), his morning food check, he gave 5cc back, his o2 needs are up a bit. But they started him on some vitamins & some steroids, so hopefully in a day or two things will be better.

And of course, he hasn't extubated himself yet today, so that's something.


I'm off to the social security office to get him a social security number. He qualifies for the low birth weight program but he has to get his SS# issued ASAP in order to get it done. It's $30/month which isn't much, but at least it's something.

Here's hoping I don't get swallowed whole in the SS office.

You are doing a great job with him.
I read your last post and wanted to cry. Even though Robbie is the one going through all the visible stuff, you are suffering too. My heart goes out to you both and also to David. So much to deal with at once. I wish I could take some of the weight....

What a chunky monkey! Last night, I held my cousin's six-pounder and thought, "Robbie is almost 1/3 of this" and now he is! I'm glad today is a better day. You all deserve it.

Grow Robbie grow!!!! That's great news and I'll take a boring day over another where he extubates himself again. Lots of prayers still for your lovely family.
