"Help! This NICU is holding me hostage!"
"If I have to watch this mobile go around ONE MORE TIME...!"
Okay, so Tyler is obviously STILL in the NICU! Talk about trying time for all of us - we just want him HOME! Well, we finally figured out WHAT was affecting Tyler's eating. By accident we figured out that he doesn't like the fortifier that is put in my breast milk (it gives him the extra calories he needs to gain weight)! He refuses to drink it and thus, is not making his minimum intake amount by bottle. When we found out we immediately had him moved over to formula feeding and he miraculously started bottling again. It was like magic! So...we're finally getting closer to Tyler coming home - AGAIN. I don't want to say when because it's really unknown, but John and I are hoping to see the little guy before 150 days in the NICU minimally. Good grief - that's not much to ask for, is it?
Besides his feeding, Tyler is just a good boy. He is ready to come home and we are anxious to take him out of there. Do you think they'd notice if his HUGS tag sort of fell off? ;o) hee hee...
