Well, I finally have a few moments to provide an update w/ a few baby pics.
As I mentioned in my previous blog my little boy has to stay in the hospital to gain some energy and learn how to take his bottle. It has been over 2 weeks now and it looks like it will be yet another week before we can take him home. This has been the hardest time of my life, I must admit. My days are usually spent at home with my baby girl and nights with my baby boy. It is hard to see leave him every night not knowing when we can take him with us.
My little girl Lilly is doing very well. She takes her feedings with vigor every time. Her only complaint has been a little constipation and gas. Phew! Who knew such a small package could put out such a smell!
I am also getting by. My incision is healing well, my iron levels are coming back and my swelling is about half what it used to be. Unfortunately my milk supply is not coming in and I am wondering if it ever will. Currently I am slave to a pump every 3 hours or so - it is so tiring!
But here are some pictures... I will post again some time soon .. hopefully when I have some good news.
