It's cot heaven for me tonight.
Well, after spending 3 nights in a chair, I lucked out and our nurse has brought in a cot for tonight. It's about time! My back is screaming at me right now. I'm going to need a massage soon.
We were hoping that we'd be going home today but it looks like we're here until tomorrow. Jericho is doing so great. He eats really well. And, according to my diaper count--20 to this point--his digestive system functions just super. He seems like a really good baby; He's usually content and we already have established that when he won't keep his binky in his mouth, it means he's hungry. And when his binky does do the trick but then he cries, it means his diaper is ready to be changed.
Unfortunately, Brynn's red cell count keeps testing a little on the low end. We even had our fingers crossed for this last test but it still tested low. If we really wanted to press the issue, I think the doctor would release us. But he's recommending sticking around for another night, just so we're a little closer to treatment if any is needed. I have to say, the first time I met Brynn's doctor, I was a little unimpressed. He seemed too new; maybe not enough experience. But, he's proven me wrong. He seems very good at his job and he's very personable and easy to talk to. Maybe it's his Payson roots.
So, we're here for another night. We certainly are appreciative of all of your emails, phone calls, and visits. We feel incredibly fortunate to have so many generous and loyal friends and family. It has made this wonderful experience even better.
