I’m exhausted, so cheating and posting a pic (my Facebook status) that sums up what we know about Nadia’s brain for the time being.
I feel like this is an awful, horrible dream. But alas, it is not. Is it really too much to ask for, for this to be an easy NICU stay? I guess there really is no such thing. I’ll update again when I’m not so tired.
There were positives today, we got to hold Nadia!! Here are a few pictures!
Oh, and those of you with high lipase levels, do you have any tips and tricks to share regarding freezing your breast milk? I made 25 oz today and Nadia gets about 2 oz a day, so already need to start my stash. I know you have to somehow heat it to a certain temp before you freeze it, right? In batches, each pumping session? What did you find easiest?
And if today wasn’t stressful enough with the sad news regarding Nadia… Eric’s dad passed away. He got the call just as we were walking out of the NICU to come home. Thankfully Eric said his goodbyes to his father last night. I think today goes down as one of the hardest for me and Eric. Tomorrow shall be better 🙂 I hugged Nora a little tighter as I rocked her to sleep tonight… Life is so short and fragile.
